Noordam Cruise Review by wareagle501
- Sail Date: July 2019
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Pinnacle Penthouse Verandah Suite
Coming on the ship I had very low expectations and I my expectations were correct.
The ship is somewhat worn.
The food is average.
I will say the service especially in the dining room was outstanding. Our waiter was Nadi, assisted by Ed and Janela. These three people were the highlight of the trip. Very attentive and aware of everything.
I hate being nickeled and dimed but that’s what this cruise line is all about.
We paid a small fortune for our suite. One would think WiFi would be included....not.
If you want to use a spin bike in the gym, nope.....unless you take an 8 am class for 15.00 per person.
In the spa, be careful. They will ask you if you like this or that. If you say yes, they will upcharge your bill.
Many people will look at the base price of a cruise line like this and think I’ll save money vs Regent.
When you add up all the add in charges:
Mini bar in the room (not included in drink package)
Automatic small print tips of 16.00 per day per person and compare to the price of Regent, you’ll come out pretty close on total cost. All these things are included on Regent.
I’ll not take another Holland America cruise and I recommend you look at Regent.
