Default Where is Maasdam?

Anybody know? I am not pulling up any cruises until Aug 27th. I am guessing she is coming back from Europe? I don't have a brochure on hand and I can't pull up July cruises online. Can't wait until she is back to Norfolk!!Thank You.

cruisecal is a great site - about 98% of the time it is correct.

On our first 10 days on the Volendam this past Feb/Mar - nothing was correct - but the second ten days all the ports were correctly listed.

Question Where is the Maasdam

I have booked the Maasdam December 17th from Norfolk. Have heard less than positive things about Norfolk as the port, e.g. terminal, lateness in arriving and departing. Your thoughts please.

We had the most efficient embarkation at Norfolk on the Maasdam in May. They are still in the process of organizing. We were on the ship in about 15 minutes.
Disembarkation was a bit hectic in attempting to take the HAL bus to the airport. Noticed quite a few people waiting for taxis. I would think that the port is better organized by now.

No problems on the ship at all. Service was great. No a/c or plumbing problems. No odors. Our second cruise on the Maasdam.

Have a good trip.
