This was our first cruise on Holland America. We have been on Celebrity and Princess enough to earn top status. The cabins stewards, waiters and all the crew were excellent. Overall we felt the food was good in both the dining room and the buffet. We had no complaints. Some reviews indicated the entertainment was not up to par but we felt that the entertainment was on a par with other cruise ...

We had a lovely relaxing cruise on the Noordam to St. Maarten, St. Lucia, Barbados, Martinique, Antigua (which we missed due to windy weather) St. Thomas and Half Moon Cay. We are 59 and 64 and were with friends roughly the same age. We were in Balcony cabins 4026 and 4028. Our cabin stewards, Gaga and Musali, were great, our cabin was always made up while we were away and any requests were ...

A Good Cruise, but disappointing in some aspects

Embarkation, information about the new Muster Drill requirements, service throughout the ship, food served in the Lido Restaurant as well as the Dining Room, and most of the entertainment available was excellent. Hot soups served in the Dining Room often were steaming and were delicious. My Wine Steward was Anthony: a more joyfull and knowledgable one I have ever had. Good Cabin Stewards and an ...

We have cruised HAL many times. After this cruise we both noted that service and shipboard life have slipped. Embarkation was good....lines moved, on board and into our balcony cabin in no time. We had been on the Noordam once before and she is in good shape. Learned that she is going into drydock in February for an update...wish i checked on that prior to booking. But the ship was clean. Things ...

We are a retired couple in our 60’s who took this cruise to escape the wretched winter weather that we were experiencing in the Northeast USA. This was our sixth cruise with Holland and our second on the Noordam. This was one of Holland’s Collectors Voyages, which is a fancy way of saying that it combined two cruises back-to-back: a 10-night Southern Caribbean cruise with an 11-night Eastern ...

Taxi from Riverside hotel was about 10-15 minutes ($20). The Riverside Hotel is in Los Olsos and was a fun place to stay for a couple of days prior to departure. There is many restaurants close by. The room we had was 12th floor new building on the corner with a large wrap around balcony and huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub. On traveling to port the dropping off luggage with porters was ...

My wife and I decided on a last minute cruise at Christmas time, and had a great deal on the December 23rd sailing of the msNoordam out of Ft. Lauderdale. We flew to FLL and spent the night at the Crowne Plaza, only one mile from both the airoprt and the port. We booked a guarantted cat VH stateroom and were upgraded to a cat VD stateroom (4053) and loved it. I had read some discouraging reviews ...

Just returned from a 7 day New Year cruise on the Noordam. This was our sixth cruise on Holland America. I think it is probably our last. It is sad to say that they are going downhill. I cannot say that anything is horrible, but in their effort to cut costs, they are making the cruise less enjoyable. All the web sites say that they have a crew of 800, but when we read the onboard propaganda, they ...

Six of us had the pleasure of doing an eight day cruise to the Caribbean for New Year. Our main intent was just to be there for the New year's eve celebration and being on a cruise. At the last minute we were told by a friend that the passengers were going to be an older group and their review was not what we wanted to hear and was a bit discouraging. Quite the opposite. Embarkation process was ...

While the Noordam feels behind in her maintenance and refurbishment, the same level of outstanding cabin and Vista service remains. Issues upon embarkation regarding luggage delivery were resolved after several attempts (including personal visit to Front Office where misleading information was claimed as the reason for the delay, followed by phone call to Corporate HQ in Seattle which brought ...
