Special thanks to past HAL guest Alexander Kandic for sending in this post and great photos of Maasdam leaving the port in Montreal.
Knowing that the lovely ms Maasdam was docked in old Montreal and due to sail at 5:00 pm Saturday May 26, 2012, I decided to head down to the cruise port area to try and take a few photos.
Having previously sailed on the Maasdam, and having seen this ship arrive and depart Montreal many times over the past years, I still get a thrill each and every time I witness her arrival or departure in Montreal. It always makes me dream about a future sailing on one of the Holland America ships. — Alexander Kandic
