Noordam Cruise Review by sofloyd

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2019
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

This was a Dave Koz Charter Cruz! Ship was contaminated with a flu bug. Hundreds of passengers on Week 1 and Week 2 got seriously ill with a flu bug (Cough, sore throat, chills, fever and loss of appetite - lasted for over 4 days).

The ship was very old and when we hit rough waters it showed. Many people were sick and also got sick in the main dining hall. Germs were spreading everywhere.

Food selections were scarce and they up-charged you a 15% service charge regardless of the service received.

a Would not cancel our massage during the heavy turbulence going to Tasmania and I got really ill on the table. Paid for a massage that I did not enjoy. I felt sorry for the crew being forced to work in this environment.

Also had to organize our own excursions due to limitation of Holland America. I would never cruise on this line again.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
Cabin VB 7037

Cabin, tv and bathrooms were outdated. Very small for a deluxe cabin. Entrance door was very little and had trouble getting luggage in and out.
