We recently sailed on the Roman Empire Mediterranean cruise on Holland America and it exceeded my expectations on every level. The Noordham was our ship and it was fantastic. Every detail was accounted for. The room was spacious and beautiful. The staff was unbelievably friendly and accommodating. The pool area and views were spectacular. The food was fantastic. The ports were fascinating and gorgeous. It was the best vacation I ever had.
