Tired Ship: Noordam Cruise Review by ronnymarl
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Athens (Piraeus)
The stateroom also had problems with the toilet, bath, verandah door, (wind noise).
There was no coin operated laundry, which does not help on a 22 day cruise.
One major control error was that signatures were never required for on board purchases - in a few cases we were double charged and could not prove they were not ours - to Noordam's credit, they did credit us, but we wonder what would have happened if they refused, or our ship's card was used wrongly!
The food was More adequate without being great, however the staff in the Vista Dining room were dysfunctional, and often got orders mixed up. On many nights we were more than halfway through our meal before a wine steward turned up.
On the credit side, arrival/departure/embarking/disembarking was excellent, as were the shore excursion organisation. Less
Poor, because of position jutting out from cabins above, resulting in coffee spills, wine spills etc from above.
A Majestic Princess indeed!
Great itinerary but no repeat ...
