Great, but be cautious of the age group.

Sail Date: November 10, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Very clean, beautiful. Staterooms on the small side.

Pros: The ship is beautiful. The teak deck chairs are wonderful for wathching the sunset. The crew was friendly and called you by your name within the first few days.

Cons: My husband and I are 45 & 47. The average age on board was 60. Not much in the line of exciting activities. A lot of time was spent on crafts, art auction, internet instruction, reading and suduko/crossword puzzles.

Recommends Noordam? No.

Food and Dining
Was delicious. Not an overall big selection. Many dinner choices were repeated several nights.
Ship Quality
Too much room spent as a library. Too many bar areas that no one sits in. Wasted space.
Cabin / Stateroom
Smaller staterooms, but clean and had many drawers and closets.
activities for the age group of 45's lacked. No caribbean music by the pools. Aft pool had a loud speaker that you could hardly hear, but it was regular music you hear at home anyway.
Service and Staff
Very friendly and respectful.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Arrived 7am and left at 1pm. No shops open until 10 or 11. Nothing really to do. Especially if you have been here before.
Bridgetown, Barbados
I found the water to be the most beautiful here. If just going to the beach, you don't have to pay as much money to go to the Boatyard, there is a section of beach next to it that doesn't have as much charges. The chairs and umbrellas are for rent for $5.00 each, but you get a drink coupon for each item.
Don't Miss: beach
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Don't Miss: Megans bay
Roseau, Dominica
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
The Baths were pretty, but over rated as a" must see."
Don't Miss: The Baths
Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Don't Miss: the town, beautiful streets
