Sail Date: November 01, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Superior to Maasdam, not nearly as good as the Westerdam

Pros: Comfort of deluxe suite

Cons: Unsatisfactory management of shore excursions

Recommends Noordam? No.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
The television in our deluxe suite NEVER worked during the entire cruise.
Service and Staff
The manager, Shore Excursions canceled our shore excursion in Barcelona the evening before our arrival. This shore excursion was one of the primary reasons we chose this cruise. Overall, this department appeared to be in a state of absolute confusion during the entire cruise. Also, the concerige efforts in the Neptune Lounge were far less than impressive!
