I was on the Maasdam in August. We took it out of Sweden and had a great time. It is a beautiful ship,very clean and a very friendly and hard working crew.The choc. mouse in the choc. tulip cup is reason enough to get back on board. Peary Grant was the piano player at the Piano Bar. He was great. He had the people packed in four and five rows deep every night. He won't be there in OCt. I don't think. He said he is going to be doing the around the World voyage on the Rotterdam. Peary is another reason to hop back on any ship he is on.
