Holland America Noordam Mediterranean 10-Day Roman Empire
We were completely "blown away" with the quality of cruise experience we had on the Noordam.
Not one staff member would get less than outstanding ratings. The staff was excellent at remembering you as a guest - was very personable - and made great recommendations. The casino staff was beyond courteous - and even though we didn't win much - were always encouraging and inquiring about our day. :)
We participated in the "Chef's Dinner" which was restricted to 24 total guests. It was one of the best experiences! Kinda "Iron Chef" meets cruise. The Wine Cellar Master participates and this would be my #1 recommendation to participate on the ship.
We ate at the Pinnacle Grill and the food was fantastic. I would put the Grill up against any Steakhouse. The seated dining experience was excellent too.
We only participated in the buffet dining during breakfast.
The rooms were cleaned spotless everyday - and our Steward was fantastic also.
Overall - I will - moving forward - only travel on a Holland Cruise.
