Noordam Cruise Review by Jaylaw2

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2017
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Superior Verandah Suite

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. We wanted to visit Tasmania and Melbourne, and this cruise went to both. In retrospect, an overnight in melbourne would have been good,

Pros- The food in the Main Dining Room was wonderful. The $99 package for unlimited laundry was great - we could have traveled with one small suitcase. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Our cabin was super confortable.

Cons - Embarkation was a mess. Standing in the rain, waiting to get our luggage accepted, and then an hour long wait inside the terminal to be checked in was really unacceptable. No organization at all. Disembarcation was better,but just barely. They forgot to send down one of the bins with some of our luggage, Internet was non-existent for most purposes. There is little to do aboard the ship on At Sea days. I like Trivia, but not 3 tines a day

Cabin Review

Superior Verandah Suite
Cabin SS 6073

Our cabin was roomy, and had more storage than we needed. Lots and lots of drawers, and adequate closet space. In the double-sinked bathroom, there were 2 medicine cabinets, and a undersink shelf for storage

The steward was not the best
