This was our first time cruising so we have nothing to compare the Noordam to but we have no complaints. The ship seems well maintained, is a good size, and the services were fine. The crew was exceptional. Our children didn't particularly enjoy the kids club but did enjoy the covered pool and spa, the DVD rental program. We're glad we booked a cabana for the length of the cruise. The price was a fraction of the cost of a balcony cabin and we were able to enjoy Glacier Bay from our very own perch with a 180-degree view. The service in the cabana was attentive and we were never without food or drinks. The Explorers Cafe was a great place to cozy up with coffee and write. I'm not sure when we will cruise again but when we do, it will be with Holland America. I can't imagine sailing on any of the larger, louder, frenetic lines.
