That being the case, she should be in pretty good shape. I had heard similar negative reports prior to sailing Maasdam last fall, but did not find any of the negatives mentioned - no bad smells, dirty spots, etc. - even though there had not been a recent refurbishment. A lot is in the eye of the beholder; you may find, if you have not been on HAL for several years, they may not offer quite the quality you remember. However, if you have sailed them in the last few years, you will probably not be disappointed.
