Ship Facts: Noordam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Noordam Deck Plans
PLEASURES ON THE NOORDAM 1/14/2010
We sailed on the Noordam on 1/14/2010 for 10 days...our only regret...wished we had booked for 10 more days! The overall service throughout the cruise was exceptional!

Our cabin stewards, Apip and Ary were great...always a smile and a hello. Our Main dining waiter, Rudy and his assistant, Pande were knowledgeable and Rudy had a great sense of humor.

Most of our evening activities (you would understand if you saw our bill) were spent making new friends in the Ocean Bar and the Piano Bar. Joseph and Cesar made the Ocean Bar a "home away from home", by introducing us to other passengers and by keeping us entertained with their wit and get "mixing" talents! Lee, in the Piano Bar, made the bar ROCK! Kudos to Eric for a great pick of talent. Of all our cruises, the Piano Bar was the best by far.

Thanks to Mark, the Hotel Manager, who attended our Meet & Greet. He gave an enthusiastic presentation. A very special thank you to Mark, who came to my husband's rescue (and probably saved our marriage), by finding a pair of shoes for my shoeless husband on disembarkation (since I happened to pack ALL of his shoes the night before!

The Captain was very hospitable and should be proud of the job that his crew is doing.

Only 1 suggestion: At Martinique, it was difficult for elderly/handicap passengers to walk the long distance from the ship to the taxi's, etc. It might be a good idea if golf carts (or something similar) were available for those passengers.
