Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

I will start with the title of this review. Embark, disembark all OK - most lines have this in the bag.

We chose this cruise on Noordam, because we love Vancouver, we wanted to go to Sydney and we love sea days.

This cruise bore not the remotest resemblance to our 2 x cruises on Volendam Dec.16 and April 18. Where has the elegance gone? The fresh flowers everywhere? The sophistication? Dancing? Cocktail bars?

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

The cabin was great-new carpet, bedding, huge TV

Deny n Budi, our room stewards, had our whole section in hysterics all day every day. And they did a great job, we felt they made the cruise for us - lovely gentle men treating us like kings.

However, the cabin is very low on storage, in the bathroom and the main room. Luggage storage under the bed excellent, but no overhead cabinets so very difficult to store everyday electrics, computers, stuff in general. Balcony quite adequate.
