Poor quality

In response to review, CrusinTim says ...

On all the past 11 cruises I have been on, it was made clear that there is no cabin service on disembarkation day.

I too am under the understanding that room service on the last day is not available. I would have thought that Holland Cruises were a bit over and above the standard of Carnival. Or so I've been told.

Thanks for the review.

We loved the Noordam. Disembarkation day is too hectic for room service. The stewards have enough to do without dealing with all of the extra trays and dishes. Get up early and go down and get your coffee on the last day.

Thanks for the review. Sorry you had a a bad experience

Is there a point in sending me comments from other cruisers? Am I supposed to change my mind? If they do not serve breakfast they 1) should not put out menus and 2) should have told me that when I called.

BAK 1061 please when you do not know me or my circumstances do not presume to tell me to get up early and go get my coffee.

I am happy for those that had a good experience, I did not.


Whoa ! Hold on......I never even read your post. I was responding to what was written here. The get up early and get your coffee was a general point of info, not directed at you. And no, I don't know your circumstances, nor do I presume anything about anyone, but responding in a surly manner won't buy you any points..

I reiterate, we had a GREAT time on the Noordam. If the rudeness you showed me based on one sentence was the same attitude you showed on your cruise, perhaps that's why you had a less than stellar experience. Being nice goes a long way.

Now that I think about it, you can get limited room service the morning of Debarkation. We have it on Norwegian every time. I don't know why you were told no room service, other than HAL being a Carnival owned company and CCL is cutting back every way possible. So, if HAL & Princess are cutting back too, people will spend their money elsewhere. And Carnival execs will be left scratching their heads.

You are leaving on your next cruise in a day... I hope you next cruise is wonderful!

Been a while since we have been on HAL, so don't recall if they had room service on disembarkation mornings or not. I know Princess does not offer it then but opens the buffet a little earlier. Often we use the Princess breakfast service on those port days where we have to muster early. Interesting that FDR's NCL is still offering breakfast during disembarkation. But then, doesn't NCL sock it to you with a charge for room service nowadays? We get pretty much a full breakfast on Princess for no extra charge.
