Verified Review
7 Night Glacier Discovery Northbound (Vancouver To Anchorage)
Sail Date: July 10, 2016
Ship: Noordam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8134
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

The food was very good and our verandah cabin was more than adequate.  Not often you get a full sized bathtub these days.  The cruise was a typical itinerary and we followed or were followed by a Princess ship and a Crystal ship from port to port. Three days in three small, dreary ports were too much for a seven day cruise.  Entertainment on board was minimal.  For a ship some ten years old, the Noordam is in remarkably good condition and the public areas are quite upscale even today with marble floors, glass and brass.  Very nice lounge areas, gaming area, and quite seating nooks.Happy
