"Never Again Holland America"

Sail Date: September 24, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The lack of shows was a major disappointment, they had a group of dancers and singers that were just OK, but to have no show at all on some nights and what they had wouldn't make "America's got talent"

The other disappointment was the open seating, people who liked their open seating the first night were somehow able to reserve it for the rest of the week, so when you went in for open seating you got the wait station or some other table just as bad.

Pros: The embarkation and Disembarkation was very good, and the food was excellent.

Cons: The lack of shows, there would be a guaitar player and then nothing.

Recommends Noordam? No.

Ship Quality
The central atrium was two levels high, most ships are 6 or 7. There were tons of sitting areas where you could read or play cards, just what we went on a cruise for!
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Food and Dining
Messina, Sicily
Taoramina was a great site to visit.
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Terrific walled city.
Naples, Italy
Just OK, a busy city with some nice panoramic views
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
This was our second time there and should not be missed, a little more crowded this time though.
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
A waste of time, it makes you think they only stop there just to have another stop.
Santorini, Greece
It's OK, has all the white house's you expect in Greece, interesting cable car to get there or donkey ride.
Corfu, Greece
Again just a another city, pretty with a an old fort and palace.
