Noordam Cruise Review by petermaij

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2017
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Penthouse Verandah Suite

Free drinks with the HAL means a poor choice of low quality wines with excellent food. This is not a good combination. Even with a group of 7 guests ( 7 x $ 9 = $63) they do not offer you to order a bottle or 2 with a better quality.

The free drinks package means 15 drinks. Max per drink is $ 9. They don’t offer you the premium package if you booked explore 4 in advance !.

For a suite if you don’t take explore 4 they offer you a $ 500 discount, which in our case is a better deal.

The problem with the shops on boards is that the assortment is similar on all Carnival ships ; little choich for men.

The hotel in Anchorage was far below the standard of the HAL, especially when you booked a pinnacle suite.

In our suite we were surpised with polished shoes from another suite and the same with laundry, but then 2 times.

The pinnacle suites on the HAL re just twice the size than a balcony stateroom and that's it. Not really a suite like with other cruise companies like Celebrity and Oceania.

Regards,

Peter

Penthouse Verandah Suite

not a suite; a stateroom with double the size of a balcony stateroom and that's it.

The bathroom is O.K. for a suite
