Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Second time on the Noordam. It's a lovely ship. Not too big\, not too small.

Pros: Itinerary\, guest entertainment\, activities

Cons: Closet layout

Recommends Noordam? Yes!

Service and Staff
Ronald brought two of all the Explorers and other papers when asked.
Ship Quality
The little snack bar Explorations Cafe was too small to be of any interest. Better to head up to the Lido for a snack. Noordam is attractive and well appointed.
Food and Dining
Never had a wait for \"on your own\" dining. They dropped the ball on a birthday celebration requested before boarding. Did it on the last night after another request. Pinnacle Grille was great as always.
Cabin / Stateroom
Love the bathtubs on HAL. Don't love the closet layout. Plenty of room. Too many doors. The electric outlet at the desk is so low that I could not plug my hair dryer in without an adapter. One reading light was not usable in the two bed set up.
Loved the guest entertainers. Also\, the computer\, crafts\, and cooking classes on sea days. Like the theater layout.
