Activities & Services

Every day aboard a Holland America cruise ship brings a wealth of cruise activities and indulgences, along with the freedom to partake in as many ? or as few ? as you please. It's an opportunity to try something new that surprises you, every day. Whether you choose to workout in the Fitness Center, pamper yourself with a massage at the spa, or listen to music while checking your email in the Explorations Caf?, there's a perfect onboard activity for everyone.

To ensure that the efforts of all crew members are recognized and rewarded, a daily Hotel Service Charge is automatically added to each guest?s shipboard account. The amount of the daily Hotel Service Charge* for suites is US$12.00 per guest, per day; and US$11.50 per guest, per day for non-suite staterooms. Guests are free to adjust this amount at the end of each segment and/or voyage, should the service received exceed or fail to meet guests' expectations.

A 15% Service Charge is automatically added to bar charges, dining room wine purchases, and for spa and salon services.

Please note: this charge is subject to change without notice.

    Please note: Medicare and many health insurance plans DO NOT cover the cost of medical care at sea, in foreign countries, or for air evacuation. Guests are encouraged to obtain travel medical insurance prior to travel in order to be reimbursed for services rendered.

  • Pregnancy Policy -

    Women cannot have begun their 24th week of pregnancy at any time before or during the cruise.

    If you are pregnant, a physician?s letter must be provided stating the expected due date, medical fitness to travel, and the pregnancy is not high risk. Please also include your name, booking number, ship and sailing date.

    Please fax letters to Holland America's Access & Compliance Department at 800-577-1731. Or they can be mailed to:

    Holland America Line
    Attention: Access & Compliance Department, 2nd floor
    300 Elliott Avenue West
    Seattle, WA 98119

    Guests are urged to have their letter mailed or faxed in as soon as possible after making a reservation.

  • Smoking Policy -

    For the comfort of all guests, smoking is prohibited in all staterooms, showrooms, and most other indoor areas. While smoking is not permitted in staterooms, guests are allowed to smoke on stateroom verandahs. Smoking is also permitted on certain other designated, outside decks. The designated smoking areas for all ships are as follows unless otherwise noted.

    • Stateroom verandahs
    • Casino (Active players only)
    • Seaview Bar
    • Outside Decks
    • Sports Deck

    Cigar and pipe smoking is NOT allowed anywhere inside the ship; it is only permitted on the outside decks where smoking is allowed and on stateroom verandahs.

    Electronic cigarettes are permitted in staterooms but not in other public areas of the ship other than on outside decks designated as smoking areas.

    Any guest caught smoking inside their stateroom will be considered in violation of Holland America's smoking policy, and will be charged a US$250 cleaning fee per day of violation.

  • Special Dietary Needs - Advance Notice Required -

    Special dietary requests, such as vegetarian, diabetic or gluten-free meals, are easily accommodated with advance notice. Kosher meals and a Health Conscious Dining option are also available. To arrange special meals, please contact the Ship Services Department at 1-800-541-1576 at least 90 days prior to departure.

    Food Allergies

    For guests with food intolerances or allergies that are NOT life-threatening, please contact the Ship Services Department at (800)541-1576.

    For guests with life-threatening food allergies, guests are asked to provide detailed information to the Access & Compliance Department by completing a Special Requirements Information (SRI) Form. Guests should indicate on this form which foods may potentially cause a severe reaction. Guests with a variety of severe food allergies sail with Holland America Line regularly. The galley staff on board is accustomed to and experienced in dealing with these types of needs. The galley itself has many different areas of food preparation, which can help reduce the possibility of cross-contamination. It is important to note, however, that meals are prepared in mass quantities on board, thus there is always the possibility of some cross-contamination. As such, Holland America Line cannot guarantee that a guest will not come in contact with those items. Although the Access & Compliance Department will provide the ship with an advance notice of all food allergies detailed on an SRI submitted to them, it is recommended that guests also contact the Dining Room Manager upon boarding to review the details of these special dietary needs.

  • Wheelchair Access & Special Needs -

    Holland America Line is committed to providing safe, easy, and accessible accommodations for all persons with disabilities, to the extent that is feasible. However, some needs require adequate time to prepare for a guest's arrival. It is recommended that guests make every effort to contact the Access & Compliance Department and submit a Special Requirements Information (SRI) Form well in advance of the departure of their cruise and/or cruisetour. It is recommended that an SRI form be submitted immediately upon booking, or a minimum of 45 days prior to departure.

    Guests who are unable to care for their basic needs (e.g. dressing, eating, and attending safety drills) MUST have a capable traveling companion. The medical staff on board is not available for daily care unless an individual is hospitalized in the ship's Medical Center. In limited situations (either on board or ashore), Holland America may find it necessary to ask the individual to make alternative travel arrangements, such as if an individual with a disability is unable to satisfy certain specified safety and other criteria, even when provided with appropriate auxiliary aids and services.

    Wheelchair-Accessible Staterooms

    Holland America Line vessels have specially designed staterooms for guests who use wheelchairs. If you have not booked a wheelchair accessible staterooms, but instead will be using a standard stateroom, it is important to know about some limitations that adversely impact maneuverability, especially ingress and egress into bathrooms. For example, bathroom dimensions, doorsills, and the height of bathtubs in standard staterooms are often difficult to negotiate for guests who have limited mobility. Additionally, standard stateroom doors and hallways may be too narrow for a wheelchair or scooter* to maneuver into and out of the stateroom.

    *Note: For safety reasons, these mobility devices must be stored and charged in the guests' staterooms.

    Wheelchair Accessible Staterooms offer features such as wider entry doors, roll-in showers with grab bars and benches/seats, and hand-held shower nozzles, as well as lowered closet and towel rods.

    • Wheelchair accessible stateroom entry doors measure 32 inches wide.
    • Wheelchair accessible bathroom doors measure 32 inches wide.

    Accessible stateroom locations are noted on the Deck Plans for each ship.

    Ship Transfer Options

    For individuals with limited mobility, the use of a wheelchair will be the primary mobility assistance aid for getting on and off the ship. Certain ship transfer operations (i.e. during tendering and at the gangways) may not be fully accessible to wheelchairs or scooters. When a ship is unable to dock, guests are taken ashore on smaller boats called tenders. Some guests with limited mobility may find it difficult to embark or disembark the ship at certain times while tendering or while docked due to steep gangways and steps, particularly during low or high tide. Also, please note that scooters and wheelchairs which are more than 100 lbs. (without the battery) are not allowed to be transferred from the ship to tender and/or from tender to shore.

    Most Holland America Line vessels have been retrofitted with a tender-lift system that enables guests to roll directly on and off tenders while remaining in their wheelchairs. However, please be advised that adverse weather conditions such as wind, swells, or extreme tide levels may prohibit the use of the ship's tender lift equipment. Additionally, some port facilities may not be able to accommodate the lift equipment. If you require the use of this equipment, please speak with the Guest Relations Manager upon embarkation for further details or to coordinate specific arrangements.

    Situations may occur in which guests with limited mobility may not be able to go ashore at the time they desire or are unable to go ashore at all in certain ports. For the safety of all concerned, the Captain shall make the final determination regarding whether or not it is advisable to provide assistance to guests with mobility impairments, or to carry their mobility assistance device (wheelchair, scooter, walker, etc.), taking into account all appropriate matters including, but not limited to, weather conditions, ship's location, weight of the guest or their mobility device, etc.

    Personal Mobility Equipment

    For the safety of all guests and crew, and to enhance accessibility, Holland America Line strongly recommends that all personal electric mobility equipment meet the following criteria:

    • Width: 23" maximum (in order to be accommodated in a standard stateroom), unless collapsible to a width of 23" or less
    • Weight: 100 lbs. maximum (without battery)
    • Batteries: Must be gel or dry cell or AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) only

    Holland America Line recognizes that for some people, a larger scooter may be essential. If you believe you need a larger scooter, please contact the Access & Compliance Department to discuss your requirements.

    For the safety of all guests and crew, scooters and other mobility equipment need to be securely stored and charged in the guest's stateroom, not in hallways or elevator lobbies. Scooters left in hallways and elevator lobbies could restrict people needing to travel through these areas in an emergency, particularly other guests using mobility aids, since they would have no way of getting by a scooter left in a hallway.

    Holland America Line is no longer able to provide complimentary wheelchair assistance for any purpose other than embarkation, disembarkation, and emergency situations. Holland America Line wheelchairs are not available for shore excursions or for use on board. If you will require regular use of a wheelchair, it is recommended that you bring your own wheelchair with you. You may also make advance rental arrangements prior to your sailing and have a wheelchair delivered directly to the ship for use on board and in ports of call.

    Special Needs at Sea and CareVacations/CruiseShipAssist are the vendors that Holland America Line has approved for delivery of mobility devices. Please contact these vendors directly for pricing and availability.

    Website: www.cruiseshipassist.com

    Please be advised that all pre-arranged mobility equipment rentals must be made by the guest and the third party provider. Consequently, you assume the entire risk of utilizing these third party services subject only to whatever terms or arrangements are made by you or on your behalf with the service provider. Refund issues must be dealt with solely between you and the service provider. We recommend contacting one of these companies to confirm your arrangements as soon as possible in order to ensure the availability of your specific requests.

    Shoreside Wheelchair Assistance

    Because facilities in ports around the world vary significantly, wheelchair accommodations may not be available for some land tours and/or shore excursions. Furthermore, many transportation vehicles around the world do not have wheelchair lifts. Thus, it may be necessary for Holland America Line to make alternate transportation arrangements such as a sedan vehicle. This requires that a guest who uses a wheelchair be able to transfer from his/her wheelchair to the front or back seat of a sedan. Due to the limited number of lift-equipped vehicles in foreign locations, guests may incur additional costs for transportation related to airport transfers, shore excursions, and tour/hotel packages. Please note, lift equipped transportation within the United States may be arranged without additional costs. For information on alternative transportation arrangements and associated costs please contact the Access & Compliance Department . Please advise Holland America Line as far in advance as possible of any special needs for transfers. This will help to ensure availability of the appropriate vehicle(s) and for Holland America Line to provide an estimate of additional associated costs.

    Guests should be aware that certain third party shore excursion facilities may not be fully accessible to guests with disabilities. Although Holland America Line endeavors to make sure these companies comply with legal requirements, they cannot guarantee that all are able to provide facilities that are accessible to individuals with disabilities. For detailed information on accessibility of shore excursions, it is strongly recommend that guests contact the Shore Excursions Department prior to embarkation at 1-888-425-9376 (or locally at 206-626-7320) or visit the Shore Excursions Office on board.

    Wheelchair assistance that is requested for airports or train stations must be done directly through the airline or rail station. Holland America Line is not able to arrange for wheelchair assistance at airports or train stations.

    Options For Deaf or Hard of Hearing Guests

    To help maximize the cruise experience for guests who are deaf or hard of hearing, Holland America Line has made the following items available:

    • Stateroom kits that include a visual and tactile alert for someone knocking at the door, the phone ringing, or an alarm.
    • Stateroom televisions capable of showing closed captioning (some satellite feeds do not transmit with captioning, so this feature is available only when the signal the ship receives has captioning).
    • Telephones with amplified sound for staterooms.
    • Assistive Listening Systems with portable receivers in the show lounges to assist guests who are hard of hearing to hear the shows.
    • Written safety information and a copy of the lifeboat drill safety speech.

    Options For Guests Who Are Blind Or Have Low Vision

    To help maximize the cruise experience for guests who are blind or have low vision, Holland America Line has made the following items available:

    • Window-Eyes? computer software in the Explorations Caf? that allows guests to navigate the web by listening to the text.
    • Downloadable daily activities, news, and menus for guests with laptops with screen reader programs. These items may also be downloaded to the Window-Eyes? enabled computer in the Explorations Caf?.
    • With 45 days notice, large print or Braille menus describing the inspired cuisine offered across a myriad of venues, from the elegant Dining Room to the casual Lido Restaurant.
    • A familiarization tour of the vessel upon arrival.

    Service Animals

    Holland America Line only permits service animals on board, defined as those animals that are individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. Guests are not permitted to bring pets, therapy/companion animals, and other animals that do not meet the definition of service animals. If you have any questions about whether the animal you wish to bring on board is, in fact, a service animal, you may contact the Access & Compliance Department.

    Your itinerary may include ports of call that have very specific and strict requirements that need to be met prior to your service animal being allowed off of the ship. Please be sure you understand the requirements for a service animal to disembark in each port of call. The best places to obtain specific information on required documentation and immunizations for your service animal are the U.S. Department of Agriculture's website, local customs offices in the specific ports, and from your service animal's veterinarian. All documentation and immunization requirements are established by government authorities and not by Holland America Line. Should you need assistance in locating this information, please contact the Access & Compliance Department.

    To board the ship, your service animal must have current vaccinations. Records confirming the vaccination status should be provided to the Access & Compliance Department prior to your departure. It is also recommended that you carry the immunization records with you in case they are required at any port of call. If you do not have the proper documentation and proof of vaccinations for your service animal required at a port of call, or if there are local quarantine requirements, your service animal will be denied the right to leave the ship. If your service animal is denied the right to leave the ship in a specific port of call, the staff and crew will work with you to determine what actions may be possible to allow you to visit the port without your service animal. Please note that in your absence, you will need to provide for the care and supervision of your service animal. Except in those circumstances where your service animal has been denied disembarkation, you may not leave your service animal unattended on the vessel or in your stateroom at any time.

    Oxygen Deliveries On Board

    Guests requiring continuous or intermittent oxygen for chronic conditions must make their own arrangements prior to travel. Holland America Line ships are not equipped to provide guests with these services other than on an emergency basis in the Ship's Medical Center. For security and safety reasons, Holland America has selected CareVacations/CruiseShipAssist and Special Needs at Sea as the only outside vendors permitted to deliver oxygen supplies to Holland America ships.

    Special Needs at Sea

    Fax: 800-513-4516

    Website: www.cruiseshipassist.com

    Note: Oxygen and/or oxygen equipment deliveries will not be accepted from any other companies.

    Please be advised that all oxygen and oxygen equipment rental arrangements must be made by the guest and the third party provider. Consequently, you assume the entire risk of utilizing these third party services subject only to whatever terms or arrangements are made by you or on your behalf with the service provider. Refund issues must be dealt with solely between you and the service provider. We recommend contacting one of these companies to confirm your arrangements as soon as possible in order to ensure the availability of your specific requests.

    Guests are also welcome to bring their own oxygen and/or oxygen equipment from home. Please note that the ship's staff and crew are not permitted to handle oxygen and/or oxygen equipment during the embarkation and disembarkation process. Thus, you must be able to handle your supplies if you bring your own. Please contact the Access & Compliance Department prior to sailing if you will require oxygen while on your cruise.

    Please Note: In accordance with FAA regulations, airlines have restrictions concerning traveling with oxygen and oxygen containers. It is the traveler?s responsibility to be familiar with and comply with the regulations of the airline they are traveling on.

Ship Staterooms

Enjoy refined amenities, such as fragrant Elemis Aromapure bath products, flat-panel TVs, finely woven cotton linens and Holland America's signature Mariner's DreamTM bed, which grace every elegant stateroom. Most of the spacious rooms aboard are ocean-facing, allowing you to enjoy expansive views as you sail to each new destination. Many have private, teak-lined verandahs, perfect for sunbathing or dining al fresco.

Information provided within these pages has been updated as of February 2020.

Barcelona to Rome 4/4/14

| Barcelona to Rome
This was our first time with HAL after a couple of similar trips w/Norwegian. Our experience was that they are very comparable. The Noordam has been around awhile but was exceptionally well maintained. I think they are a bit more expensive than Norwegian for a comparable cruise and while we couldn't see anything that was significantly better than Norwegian, we would certainly consider them for a future trip

Excellent Service with Noordam

| Anchorage, Alaska, Denali Park, Yukon, Canada
Easy getting luggage on disembarkation. Really enjoyed the Lido cafeteria and dining room. Meeting new people. Really enjoyed the entertainment. Dislike paying for internet service.

Relaxing

| Alaska
Very impressed with cleanliness of ship and excellent service. I would highly recommend this ship!

Overall Experience

| Barbados, Martinique, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Half Moon Cay
I was dismayed to see some passengers dressed inappropriately for the formal evenings to the extent that some were in shorts, tee shirts and flip flops. Though these people were not dining in the main dining room or specialty restaurants, they still looked out of place and disrespectful of fellow passengers. They should have at the very least be dressed in "smart casual". If they want to be dressed in this manner, then travel on Carnival!!

Alaska Cruise

| Ketchican/Juneau/Skagway
It was definately a trip worth taking. The staff was very attentive and they were always smiling! My only complaint is that the food was the same every day, even in the restaurants.

Hosted sailing July 10, 2016, Vancouver to Seward

| Alaska
Liked the ship and itinerary. Great ports and good info for visiting them via shore excursion or independently. Embarkation was as smooth as possible and disembarkation was easy for all. Would definitely recommend to clients.

Southbound Alaska Cruise 2017

| Alaska
This Cruise was an excellent value. The ship still looked to be in great shape even though it is last to get the "class" make-over. Our cabin's TV was outdated but most other areas still looked classy and nice. The overall attitude on this Cruise was super from staff to other guests. When we visited the Lido market buffet, we always found something tasty, nutritious and good variety each day. The main dining room did a great job as well. We had OPEN dining and had no problems getting sat in a nice location, quickly. The staff was pleasant and the food tasted really good, I tried many plates offered. We also ate at Canaletto and Pinnacle Grill, one night each. I can't say enough of how wonderful all of what we ordered tasted and how much food we got, so much quantity and flavor! Again Super! "BB Kings" entertainment was really good, however the HAL singer/dancers entertainment was fair, a little cheesy? The Alaskan Film along with Live music by HAL musicians was fantastic! We also caught two, "out on theater", movies playing, enjoyed it. We had a couple small things in our cabin that needed HAL's attention and they jumped right on it and fixed it. My room steward was always around but not in our face, he did great and was friendly. We submitted one load of laundry to our room steward and I had my shoes shined, which he did both very timely and a great job. We also thought the gym/spa was good, almost like home. Easy to keep up with our daily routine.

First Cruise

| Alaska
Great staff on ship, made you feel like a guest

Alaska Cruise

| Juneau, Hubbard Glacier, Sitka and Ketchikan
Enjoyed the voyage and sight-seeing at ports of call. The scenic view of the inside passage was great on our return trip

| new zealand australia
good cruise but nothing special

Alaska explorer

| 13 nights
The cruise tour met our expectations. HAL has done Alaska for years and they have it down. Luggage service is great and our luggage met us in our rooms when we arrived at the next stop. Accommodations met our expectations (we aren’t jaded, but we do expect above average, comfortable, clean, maintained and well-kept). Guides were knowledgeable and knew about the history, geography and wildlife in their area). HAL has smaller ships which allow more intimate interactions with other guests, allowing for new friendships and acquaintances. Thank you for a wonderful trip!

Alaska Inside Passage - September 2018

| Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Ketichan
We had a really good time on the Noordam. The staff were so friendly. The cabins were spacious and kept very clean. Our balcony was great to sit out and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the inside passage. Food in both restaurants was excellent with a great variety of options. The standard of entertainment varied quite a lot with some excellent shows and some not so great. The ports we visited Juneau, Skagway and Ketichan were lovely scenic ports and the there was a good variety of shopping available. We also booked excursions via Alaska Shore Experts and they were great especially the whale watching from Juneau and the Yukon train and bus journey from Skagway, the scenery was absolutely amazing. We did not get to see Glacier Bay due to a medical emergency on board which meant the ship had to be diverted but we were really impressed with the care given to our fellow passenger who had to be transferred off the boat

Holland America is the best!

| Australia and New Zealand
We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise! It was everything we expected. Our food stewards were exceptional. Our room stewards helped us with birthday and anniversary surprises! The BBC program was awesome! The Tasman Sea was rough, but we took it is stride as part of our adventure! Security staff have embarkation and disembarkation down to a science at every port! We didn’t have to wait for anything, it even tenders! Food is great, beds are comfy, staff are awesome!!

Australia/new Zealand

| Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, most ports in New Zealand
The shows were not very good. The excursions were good.

First Time Cruisers

| Alaska
This was our first cruise so I really don't have anything to compare it to. This being our first time it was every thing we could hope for.

Fabulous Cruise

| Fairbanks, Denali, Anchorage, AL and Vancouver,CA
Overall this was a fabulous cruise. Some of the problems that I experienced were from my own lack of knowledge. HAL had changed the names of some of the venues on the ship, but not the signs. This was a little confusing. The cruise line made every effort to make the trip enjoyable, especially glacier bay.

HA Noordam Critic

Dining room staff needs additional training. Food presentation better than quality of food. Entertainment in Vista Lounge not up to what it used to be.

Cruise: Rome-Venice July 12-23

| Rome-Messina-Valetta-Corfu-Kotor-Korcula-Dubrovnik-Split and Venice
Thanks to my Travel Agent for her gracious attention and help to enable us to obtain a reasonable price. I appreciated the promotional offer to our cabin, which covered our tips and drinks as well as a few purchases on board. We did not use the land tours offered by Holland-America, since they were quite expensive. We managed to find satisfactory local taxis or city tours on arrival. The staff member offering advice on board was very helpful in answering questions related to each port. Since I was traveling with a friend abroad, we would have appreciated receiving copies of all e-mail correspondence. Frequently my friend did not receive a copy and, so, I had to keep forwarding your e-mails to her.

Great Ship in need of a tune-up

| Australia and New Zealand
The crew was probably one of the friendliest and welcoming of any we’ve experienced with Holland America and this makes our 5th HAL cruise. The ship we learned is going into drydock after the Summer 2019 season for refurbishing. No more having to check out DVDs to watch on little TVs.

Wonderful First Cruise

| Honolulu
Thoroughly enjoyed the six days on Noordam from Vancouver to Honolulu. Beginning to plan next cruise.

Noordam Cruise through Alaska

| Alaska
By and large, everything went smoothly, the food was excellent and the entertainment great. Since we had to leave the ship as early as possible in order to catch our flight, we opted to take our luggage ourselves and proceeded toward the exit which was already filled with people who were supposed to be in their cabins. Unfortunately, there was no officer or crew member in sight . Finally, some crew members appeared and we were able to leave the ship after lugging our suite cases to an other level which originally was not on the program.

Best trip EVER!

| Seattle-Ancorage-Fairbanks-Glacier Bay-Juneau-Ketchikan
We met many travelers for whom this was a repeat cruise. Cruisers really enjoy the pampering, the quiet and the prices. It was all a super value. I wouldn't send a group of coeds looking for FUN but our your people still found plenty to do that was enjoyable.

Sailing smoothly in Alaska's waters

| Alaska
This is a well run ship. There are lots of things to do and the excursions are interesting. The crew is very courteous, always ready to help.

Great Australian/New Zealand Cruise

| Australia and New Zealand
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Would recommend HAL to our friends and family. Thank you!

Excellent ship - excellent cruise

| St. Maarten; St. Lucia; Martinique; Barbados, St. Kitts; St. Thomas; Half Moon Cay
Only comment had nothing to do with me other than I was with my friends, one of which required a wheelchair to get on the ship, and the amount of time it took to get a wheelchair was well over an hour; closer to 1-1/2 hours. They seemed to be short of staff and wheelchairs and way to many people requiring wheelchairs. This was very surprising for Holland America since they are known to cater to a much older crowd. Surprisingly this cruise had a large variety of ages, which was great - ages ranging from the 40's through the 90's and far more in the 50's and 60's ages.

Mrs.

| Fairbanks to Vancouver
The land, Cruise and Vancouver trip was extremely well planned and everything went so smooth. One best part was that we did not have to worry about our luggage from the beginning to the vend. The cruise was one of the best I been before. I absolutely love it and enjoy.

Australia & New Zealand Cruise

| Australia & New Zealand
Guests should have pre-assigned times to register for embarkation based on previously submitted preferred times. There was chaos at the port terminal when almost everyone arrived at the same time to embark!

Our first great experience with Holland

| Alaska inside passage
This as our very first cruise. We were apprehensive in many ways. The Alaska cruise by Holland was a fantastic time and certainly opened our eyes to the potential of more cruises in our future travel plans. Common ation throughout the trip was frequent, clear, and on track giving us everything we needed to enjoy every facet. I

Great ship

Great food especially in specialty restaurants. Very good entertainment

Alaska Cruise

| Alaska
1. There was sewer smell many days on Deck 4. 2. Comedian's "off color" remarks in his set did not fit the family friendly atmosphere.

Fabulous adventure in Alaska

| Seward, Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan
We were pleasantly surprised by the ship and our room. Very nice. The staff was extremely helpful and very courteous. We would highly recommend the cruise line and the ship to anyone.

11 days on the Noordam

| Med
The crew was always smiling and happy to greet you. They learned your name in the dining room or at the Lido buffet on the first day and never forgot who you were. The ship was just the right size for exploration and for easily navigating. The casino was well run for a casino at sea. Tournaments were available for players. Excursions were great and plentiful. I would recommend, the ship, the crew, the ports and the food on this sailing.

Noordam

| Alaska
The dining room personnel was outstanding. Ours were Batara and Aditya. Learned our names right away and never forgot them The whole dining room was worked efficiently.. our waiters were so helpful. I felt the dining room was VERY well trained. I told the person in charge how I felt about his working with them. Our room was cared for by Yudi and Mat. Yudi was outstanding and helpful. and could greet us from down the hall,too. This was an exciting but restful cruise. Congratulations to whoever made it so great. Even with the lousy weather!

Overall this was a fantastic experience and I’m happy I chose to travel with Holland America for mine and my moms first cruise.
