April 2015 - 15 Night Panama Canal Westbound (Ft. Lauderdale To San Diego) Cruise on Noordam
Food very poor
My niece and I cruised from Ft. Lauderdale, Panama Canal all the way to Vancouver, BC. Although the ship was ok, the food was not in both the M.D.R. and Buffet. Breakfast was the only meal we enjoyed, however, who "deep fries bacon"? Did not enjoy their selection of food. We avoided going to the M.D.R. a few evenings and just had soup and sandwiches in the buffet. They mixed up our orders a number of times, so while the rest of us dined the other had to wait for their dinner.
Our cabin was adequate but very small. Upon arrival we found hair on the bathroom foor and the rugs looked like they were in need of a good sampoo. The last two days of our trip the cabin seward didn't even bother to straighten out our towels, just left them as is.
We had the most enjoyable time at pool side.
A couple of years back we went on Celebrity Eclipse and everything was "Excellent"
I do not think we will travel Holland America Noordam again.
