3 out of 5
Sail Date: December 01, 2012
Ship: Noordam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship needed an update. The decor and furnishings were dated and worn. The staff were not as attentive as in past cruises with HAL. Entertainment by the ship's dancers and singers was average. Their routines\, sets and costumes needed updating. The individual entertainers ranged from bland to exceptional. The Pinnacle speciality restaurant was the highlight of the cruise. It rates 4+ stars.

Despite the negatives we accomplished our objective of doing nothing. Came black completely relaxed and refreshed.

Persistent odor of raw sewage made time in he room unpleasant. TV was in need of replacement.

Pros: Got away from it all. Did no have to worry about anything once we unpacked.

Cons: The room had a persistent odor of few sewage.

Recommends Noordam? No.
