Noordam Cabins

Editor Rating
Cabins
4.0

Noordam has 986 cabins, 66 percent of which have balconies. Sixteen percent are ocean-view rooms. There are no dedicated family cabins onboard, although many regular staterooms can sleep more than two people. Wheelchair-accessible staterooms are available, as are triple and quad rooms.

The color scheme tends toward earth tones -- burnt-orange upholstery, ivory wall coverings and blond-wood tables and built-ins. Holland America's signature twin Mariner's Dream beds can be configured into a queen. Other furnishings include two bedside tables with drawers and a vanity with a lighted magnifying mirror, hair dryer and stool. Luggage can be tucked under the bed; closets have shelving for extra storage, along with a safe. Mini-bars are stocked with soft drinks, beer, wine and liquor, all for an extra charge. All but inside cabins have additional small refrigerators. Dual outlets take U.S. and European plugs.

A flat-screen TV airs a handful of stations (ESPN, Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC, BBC), and DVDs can be ordered free for in-room viewing. (There are more than 1,000 titles, but don't expect many recent releases.)

Most cabins have combination tub/showers. Storage space is decent, with a triple-shelf medicine cabinet and a deep under-sink shelf. Elemis brand toiletries include soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner and lotion.

Interior: The 162 standard or large interior rooms range from 151 to 233 square feet and are on Decks 1, 4 through 8, and 10.

Ocean view: Ocean-view cabins are 174 to 255 square feet and are on Decks 1, 4 and 6. These feature either a picture window or porthole.

Balcony: The ship's 497 veranda cabins, at 212 to 359 square feet (including a 54-square-foot balcony), are on Decks 4 through 8 and 10. Balconies are roomy enough for two chairs, a small table and a footrest; some are slightly larger and accommodate a third chair.

Suite: Signature Suites are on Decks 5, 6 and 8, and range from 372 to 384 square feet, including a large 89-square-foot balcony. Twin beds can be converted to a queen; a sofa bed sleeps one additional person. Bathrooms have dual sinks, a whirlpool tub and a separate shower.

Sixty Neptune Suites, on Decks 4 through 8, are 500 to 712 square feet and sleep up to four with two twins that convert to a king and a sofa bed. The spacious sitting area is roomy enough for a curved sofa. Bathrooms have double sinks and a separate tub and shower; these suites provide walk-in closets and larger balconies with up to four chairs and footrests and a full-size table.

Two Pinnacle Suites on Deck 7 are a spacious 1,150 square feet and feature a living room, dining room, king-size bed, sofa bed that sleeps two, dressing room, refrigerator and microwave, plus a guest bathroom. The huge balcony has plenty of room for four loungers placed two by two at discreet distances, several chairs and a table.

Occupants of the Neptune and Pinnacle suites have access to a private concierge lounge on Deck 7, although the benefits are fairly low-key. Think snacks, tea and coffee throughout the day and a concierge to make dining reservations and book excursions.

The cabin and bathroom were in good condition. It was disappointing that no toiletries were provided apart from the usual in-shower dispensers. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were flat and in need of replacement, there was no pillow menu. ... Read more
