A very good cruise

Sail Date: January 06, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

It was just much bigger, with far too many people

Pros: Beautiful islands, outstanding service, beautiful, elegant decor.

Cons: ship is too big for our standards

Recommends Noordam? No.

Ship Quality
Everything was excellent except the size
Food and Dining
The Pinnacle Grill was excellent, as always. The main dining room was hit and miss. Our breakfast and tea in our suite were always excellent.
Cabin / Stateroom
On this size of ship, there was no need to spend the money on a Deluxe Veranda Suite. The Superior Veranda Suite is excellent.
Service and Staff
Our room stewards, Agus and Subri were first class. Beyond any expectation. Our tea steward, Adi, was excellent, as well.
The string quartet was great to listen to after dinner. The Broadway show was awful. Many people walked out. The talent was superior, but the show was contrived.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Megan's bay was wonderful. Blackbeard's Castle was tasteless and filled with tourist junk.
Don't Miss: Megan's Bay
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
The French side was filthy, with dirty homeless people and trash everywhere you looked. The Dutch side was clean.
Don't Miss: none
Castries, St. Lucia
We loved St. Lucia. The island is beautiful and the people were very nice.
Don't Miss: almost any of the activities. This is a beautiful island with very nice people.
Nassau, Bahamas
We enjoyed strolling through the downtown. The merchants were very pleasant and helpbul
Bridgetown, Barbados
We enjoyed this island
Don't Miss: Island tour and green monkeys
