David and Goliath … What a Sight!

Our lovely ms Maasdam versus Royal Caribbean’s giant Oasis of the Seas. It was quite a sight!

    Hmmm which ship to sail +5000 passengers or 1200 and with a most superior service and elegance of a company which spent 137 years continue sailing the high seas. EASY GO MAASDAM GO.

    Greetings from the home port Rotterdam, Ben.

    Oh to be on the Maasdam again. My cruise on her was wonderful. I could never sail on something like the Oasis. Smaller is always the way I want to go.

    Royal Caribbean’s dream is that of Titanic proportions. One they will see the light and wished they never retired the grand Nordic Empress.

    You gave me a copy of this photo when we were having refreshments by the Ocean Pool Bar. Thanks for sharing again because I have somehow misplaced it. You folks are all correct. The Maasdam may be smaller but it is simply more comfortable than these Monsters of The Seas are! I’d love to sail the MS Maasdam again. Thanks again Mr. Elliott.
