We were very pleased with our 11 night Mediterranean cruise on the Noordam.  The ports of call were very good although one of the ports was substituted.  Therefore, we were in Sicily on Sunday when many businesses were closed so this was our least favorite. Food was very good and the ship was clean.  The staff were friendly.  Our room stewards, Joe & Will did an excellent job keeping our room clean.  Roni who was ourside the dining room each night with mints, etc. was very friendly and had a great personality.  He remembers names and makes all feel welcome.  We had open dining so had different servers each night.  All were good but we especially enjoyed Enrico.  The entertainment provided by the Noordam singers and dancers was very good.  Entertainment on other nights was not as enjoyable. The entertainment by Michael in the piano bar was excellent. 


It would have been nice if the front desk staff could assist with departure airline check-in rather than having to purchase internet minutes for that purpose.
