Maasdam from Tahiti to Auckland via Fiji, Samoa and other Pacific Islands. Two of us in our 60's had a Neptune Suite midships (010) which was quiet, roomy, in excellent condition and fabulous. The staff were great, nothing was too much trouble, smiles and greetings everywhere, loved them. Food was the best of several cruises we have done (home made burgers were to die for), excellent range of food options all well presented, hygienicly handled and delicious. Evening entertainment was top class, especially "The Unexpected Boys" (similar to The Jersey Boys) who put on 4 different shows during the cruise. My only suggestion would be to improve the range of films and shows on ship TV - very limited range of boring news channels, and two movie channels (which repeated the same film for a day each) - fortunately we found the onboard video range and overdosed on Netflix shows. We have previously cruised with P&O, Carnival and Princess, and this ship was better than all of them. Would definitely cruise with Holland America again.

Great cruise on a fantastic ship

Cabin Review

Neptune Suite with Verandah
Cabin SB 010
Excellent. Roomy, quiet, comfy bed, great bathroom, plenty of storage, reasonable TV (bigger would be better!!), close to everything. The Neptune room with dedicated services for those in suites added a special something to the experience, with its own well stocked library, snacks and drinks all day (pay for grog), and dedicated staff member happy to help with anything
