You Must Take This Cruise!!
Noordam Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago
We loved the Noordam. The balconies are larger than most ships; we liked the bathtub because it is easier to shower than in the small stall showers on most ships. Service was exceptional, especially in the upstairs Lido dining room where the service workers remember your name. They even remembered our names when we returned to cruise on this ship 6 weeks later! Far more exceptional service. And the beds and pillows were absolutely wonderful; better than the thin, hard mattresses on most other ships. The down blanket was great; nice and warm but not heavy like the bedspreads on most ships. We loved the fact that good quality beach towels are rolled up and sitting on the deck chairs waiting for you in the morning and there are plenty more available right near the pool if needed. On most other ships you are limited to one towel each and must return it or be billed. And, the towels and bed linens in the staterooms are much better quality than on most other ships.
Pros: The Service
Cons: Having to depart this ship
