We took the Noordam on a 10-day trip from NYC to the Caribbean including Grand Turk, Tortola, St. Martin, St. Thomas and San Juan - there were two sea days bookending the trip. HAL is a great line for relaxing - I really enjoy the classic layout of their ships including the wrap around Promenade and open air Sports Decks. They cater to a more sedate crowd which is fine as we were looking forward to a quiet, more relaxing trip.
Another wonderful HAL cruise
If you enjoy sea days this itinerary is great as there are two full days at sea on either end of the trip. HAL never disappoints!
Pros: Ship layout and design, service and itinerary
Cons: After dinner shows were a bit lackluster
Recommends Noordam? Yes!
