Truly Nice by davidstowers

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Noordam / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Overall great. We’ve been on Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, and Carnival Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, and Carnival and Holland America was our favorite. Older more conservative crowd. We liked the Lincoln Cemter stage entertainment and of course Alaska speaks for itself.

Dreadful ship by grandmastephy

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Noordam / Destination: South Pacific - Australia

This ship Is tired and old fashioned. There was no evening life on board. All bars deserted by around 11pm. Certainly not the life and soul of the party

Good for the money by arlenecowen

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Noordam / Destination: South Pacific - Australia

Noir dam is a good size ship, not too big. A chance to meet and revisit with many passengers. Clean and well maintained. Service was very good. Biggest flaw was the food...

Ship changing operational day to day basis by lorayship65

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Noordam / Destination: South Pacific - Australia

Would recommend anyone who has never visited NZ it will allow you to see what you would do on land as the ship does not stay long in port for you to explore but all cruise lines do this We were a small group of 4 people

Lovely New Zealand sampler cruise by maorimate

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Noordam

Overall, HAL did an excellent job. The itinerary was excellent, and the number of sea days was not excessive. I would always like more overnights, but we were satisfied,for the most part, with the amount of time in port. This cruise is a real tease - New Zealand and Tasmanis are gorgeous and fascinating, and the cruise really whetted our appetites for more of these countries.

Awesome Trip by sritacco

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Noordam / Destination: South Pacific

Overall, this was an excellent trip. We like sea days and had plenty of them. Ports were good for the most part, with some better than others. Food, crew, staff and atmosphere on the ship were superb. HAL is more like cruising should be instead of the mega-ships that want to bring amusements and the town atmosphere to sea instead of emphasizing the cruise aspect.

Approximately the last 10 days the ship was on lockdown due to the Norovirus by seve2kev

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Noordam / Destination: South Pacific

I was disappointed by the lack of protocols on dealing with the norovirus. I had heard from a friend who took the ship back to Sydney and they never did lift the protocols they finally put down on the cruise I was on

Amazing experience in Alaska by Mastel

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Noordam / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Our family of 4 went on the cruise from Alaska to Vancouver, something I had wanted to do my entire life growing up in Alaska. I moved away to college 30 years ago and then on to the East Coast. I went back with my family so they could see it with me. The scenery and cruise far exceeded all of my expectations. It was my first cruise and I had heard various thoughts on cruises in general on various cruise lines and destinations. This cruise was excellent in every way, on the ship and off. I recommend it whole heartedly to everyone.

Cruise was good. Quality of HAL not quite what I expected by sergiokapusta

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Noordam / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

We have cruised extensively. This was our 5th HAL cruise. Compared with previous cruises, I think that the overall quality of HAL was lower. Food at the main restaurant was disappointing, both in quality and selection, especially lack of vegetarian options. The restaurant was 1/2 empty for the late seating. Perhaps other guests also found the food not very attractive. Staff were helpful and attentive, but there's little they can do to improve the food. Haines is a poor choice for a visit. Skagway is where the action is. There are many tour choices at each city along the cruise. We found the selection great, prices more reasonable than through reservations, and the quality good with only one exception (the hike and float in Skagway).

This was a very nice,... by ericrnbsn

Sail date: /
Ship: Noordam

This was a very nice, laid back Alaska Cruise. This itinerary caters to a much older crowd, so I think some of the negative reviews don’t take that into account. The ship is in decent shape but it is getting close to time for a refresh. The onboard entertainment is limited and aimed at the 60 to 80 year old crowd. Our excursions and the sights of Alaska were awesome and made the entire vacation worth it.

Holland Alaskan Cruise Tour by MisterChuckles

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Noordam / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

This is our second Alaskan cruise tour, first time on Holland and first time with our teen daughters. Alaska is amazing and a must do experience. We were pleased with Holland America. The Noordam is a smaller ship than we have cruised on in the past and made for a good experience. So many great excursions to experience and sights to see. We stayed in a suite for the size with added value of a separate lounge (so so), special concierge (good), easier embarkation (great), and complimentary laundry (amazing). Norwegians haven is a far better suite experience but I would do this again if sailing Holland. Alaska is always perceived as an older person cruise. Don’t wait. There are so many great experiences and you will have a blast.
