Alaska is the Star - Noordam is just the way to get there

Make no mistake. The star of this trip is Alaska, not the Noordam. We left from Seattle for a bus trip to Vancouver to meet the ship. Embarkation was a tad frantic at Canada Place, but reasonable. The ...

Best Cruise Director, Kieron

I've been on 5 cruises, 4 of them 13 nights or longer and Noordam has the best cruise director, Kieron Humphrey. Kieron could double up as on-board entertainer anytime. I dare say he was a better comedian than some ...
