We joined this 8-day sailing at the end of a longer voyage for most passengers. Embarkation took less than 10 minutes from the pier to stateroom

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The Noordam is due for a dry-dock refurbishment in 2019 but not overdue. Some things showed wear but all were in good repair. I never noticed anything amiss.

Ship tip

The Atrium bar, on our sailing, was only open at 6pm for a martini tasting. We did that almost every evening and enjoyed each one meeting new friends reach time.
