Wonderful weather; lots of quiet places

Sail Date: December 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Clean - very strange decor\, though more comfortable chairs on this ship than we've found lately.

Pros: There was no music blaring in every nook and cranny. Got lots of reading (and dozing) done.

Cons: The staff\, other than those in authority\, seemed to be from Indonesia - not a problem with that\, except they spent a lot of time speaking to each other in their language when surrounded by passengers. Not cool.

Recommends Noordam? Yes!

Outside talent in evening shows pretty good. Not enough activities\, nor variety of activities during the day/evening\, especially when a sea day.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Only problem was that our window was TOTALLY obscured by a life boat - we had been upgraded to an outside cabin\, and I think this cabin\, though not interior\, doesn't qualify as an upgrade.
Food and Dining
Food was tasty and presented very well. Very efficient dining room staff.
Ship Quality
