MS Maasdam Cabin 379

Maasdam Cruise Review by txmrs

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2019
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: undefined

Cabin is smaller than any we have occupied on 18 prior HAL cruises (with the possibe exception of when we sailed on the MS Prinsendam)

Pros: Centrallylocated amid ship. Easy access to Dining Room and Atrium area. Obstruction of view only about 35%. Friendly, efficient cabin stweards Yusuf & Nicko.

Cons: Immediately below main gallery--constant noise (thudding, scraping of heavy objects, banging, etc. most of the night well into the wee hours of the morning).

Minimal options for "mini-bar"--just sodas & water--no refrigerator. (Disadvantage for 4 & 5 star Mariners)

Air condtioning inadequate to comfortably cool the cabin. Corridor outside the cabin is also noticebly warmer than most other interior public spaces on the vessel.

Only a single electrical outlet in the area of the small desk. Outletr in bathroomis not capable of receiving polarized (let alone grounded) plugs. No USB receivers. Fortunately, cabin stewards will provide a power strip if you request one.

Your mileage may vary,

Cabin Review


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Komodo Island

We were almost not allowed to board a 30 day cruise around OZ because of this single day diversion into Indonesia because our US passport had only about four months before expiration rather than Indonesia's 6 month requirement
