The service from the Noordam staff was outstanding!
95% of the food was outstanding. The bread, desserts, and pastries were gourmet. Steaks were not the highest grade of beef and tended toward overcooked.
The room was well maintained and the view from the balcony was great.
The fitness center was small and too hot - about 76 deg F. Minimal free weights and few stationary bikes.
Shore excursions - especially ziplining and snorkeling were awesome!
BB King Blues Band was outstanding.
Onboard activities tended toward an older, sedentary, affluent crowd. Would appreciate more onboard activities for younger, active folks.
Alcoholic drinks were expensive and the selection of bourbon and scotch at the medium to higher end were very limited.

Get a balcony for the AK cruises. Too much beauty to miss if you can't watch all the time.
