Food was great, staff were excellent but the entertainment was spasmodic

Noordam Cruise Review by Gman hillswa

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2016
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Had a great time and met some great people on the boat, unfortunately one band for the whole entire 28 day cruise, they were an excellent band and they rocked new years like you wouldn't believe, but for the whole cruise, come on!! and only two comedian shows for the 28 day cruise. I was expecting a lot more as I had been on other cruise ships before.

Spoke to one of the staff and they said that it was hard to get entertainers at that time of the year, I think that it was lack of planning.

Food was outstanding and I am now five kilos heavier.

Trying to get a drink up on the back deck was a bit hard sometimes, staff was run off their feet.

Italian restaurant was outstanding and Pinnacles was good also.

The main restaurant got busy at times and there was a bit of a wait, the food was excellent and the staff were friendly
