The abundance spectrum of deuterated heavy water clusters has been measured, and relative dissociationenergies were extracted from the abundances. The dissociation energies are similar to those of protonatedlight water clusters, except for a slightly reduced excess stability of the N = 21 cluster relative to the N = 22cluster. The difference is interpreted in terms of the special geometry of the N = 21 cluster. The absenceof a similar effect for N = 28/29 suggests that the stability of the N = 28 cluster is not due to a closed shellstructure
