Holland America Maasdam is the place to be When you wish to cruise on the sea The crew was fantastic The food was divine Especially when accompanied By a fine wine All of those smiling faces on the crew Lit up the ship and the passengers too Thank you for an enjoyable first time cruise The prices of the drinks were a little too high We are ordinary people and that is why We wish we could have brought our own drinks on board We would have still bought some as a reward. We had fun earning the dam dollars too It took some ingenuity this is true. Lebay was a real charmer what can I say She managed to get Bill to buy wine every third day With all of those wonderful people around us each day We wouldn't have had it any other way The food was terrific most of the time. I enjoyed all of my meals. Sis really looked after us well in our stateroom. It was big enough to suit us, as we weren't in it that long anyway. we had fun doing what we wanted to do on board and there certainly was lot to do. didn't take ship excursions toured on our own. It was our first cruise as I said so it took a while to get settled into the routine. We enjoyed stopping at the different Islands and touring all over and it really was nice to come back to the same stateroom each day and not to have to pack and unpack all of the time. I have lots of memories of the people we met and the things that we did. They will have to last me for a while now. The Philipino lunch was really nice. We enjoy trying new foods, etc. The supper the last night with the show was great. There were times that I really wish the boat would have stopped rocking but that was due to the waves which couldn't be helped.
