A Fantastic way to celebrate a honeymoon

Sail Date: June 28, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Being in our early 30's we thought we would be outnumbered by a lot of older folks. We were, however there were plenty of younger partiers on the ship which made it energetic and fun. The food was awesome and the ship itself was pristine. The balcony staterooms were large and spotless. Do listen to people on here complaining about the food. They are just being grumpy and should stay home next time.

Pros: Destinations, ship amenities, food, staff

Cons: Excursions are expensive and target older demographic. On board activities were ok but not great

Recommends Noordam? Yes!

La Goulette (Tunis & Carthage), Tunisia
It's a third world country
Don't Miss: Seeing the ruins of Carthage is unbelievable. Also go to the WWII American cemetary
Palermo, Sicily
The best food you will ever have
Don't Miss: Walking thru the alleyways and eating all the fresh fruits and olives
Barcelona, Spain
Very nice but overwhelmingly big and expensive
Monte Carlo, Monaco
This is the most unbelievable place I have ever seen. The pure wealth and design of the city will blow you away. Pictures do not justify.
Don't Miss: Walking around is plenty good
Naples, Italy
Very crowded and pretty dirty. The locals are not very friendly like the other areas
Don't Miss: Pompei
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Was not expecting much of Mallorca, but it was a beuatiful beach city mixing new and old shipping and buildings
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Very romantic
Don't Miss: Venture out to the Tuscany region
