Thank you so much for sharing this video! We were on Maasdam on a cruise just before yours (March 2 - 12) and this brings it all back big time!

The cabin was identical to the one we were in (542). I only have foto's but seeing it on video is even better!

I saw the desert I had at Canaletto come by too....chocolate square thingie...
