10 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 31, 2007
Ship: Noordam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago

This was our 8th cruise and our first on Holland America. We're now spoiled - HAL is our favorite. This was also our first 10-day cruise and we will NEVER go back to a 4-day one. Pricing for this cruise was great, our cabin had an obstructed view but we weren't bothered much by it. Everything except initial boarding was fabulous. One excursion on Grand Turk (snorkeling and kayak was poor but HAL excursion director promised to look into the company and correct the feared safety risks) was a problem but all others were great.

Our fourth time there and it we're geting tired of seeing the same things.

Pros: Serviice, food, ship, accommodations, cruise director, music and shows - everything!!

Cons: Boarding was disorganized purportedly because the ship docked late that morning.

Recommends Noordam? Yes!
