Thoroughly enjoyed Dave Koz and Friends and the entertainment package!!
The actual cruise ship, Noordam, is pitiful. It is dated, worn out, and in need of complete remodeling. The furniture is tired, and the bathroom in our suite never looked clean.
There is plenty of closet space in the suite which we appreciated. On other cruises when we had a suite, we had concierge like service. On this ship, you need to go to the Neptune lounge for concierge service.
The staff on the ship are kind.
I can’t say enough about the quality of the entertainment and the host of this cruise. Dave Koz is thoughtful and caring for his clients. His cruise is well planned and complete. They have more for one to do than you can even get to in a day! Would definitely recommend a Dave Koz cruise.
However, I would not recommend that he utilize Holland America in the future. This ship, the Noordam, is ready for retirement
Cabin had stains on the wall when you first walk in. This could be easily fixed. The bathroom, especially the tub is worn and doesn’t look clean. When we arrived, there was hair in the tub.
We thoroughly cleaned and disinfected our suite when we arrived because that was recommended by other cruisers.
Embarkation and disimbarkation were handled efficiently and timely which we greatly appreciated!!
