Default Noordam

Hi!

Has anyone been on the Noordam recently? We are going on the 14-day Caribbean in March. I had the ship was refurbished.

We are going on Sept 29, 2000 sailing from Istanbul to Rome for 10 day cruise on Noordam. The info I have found on Noordam is somewhat confusing. I had hear she was stretched but not refurbished. My travel agent tells me she is in pristine condition though an older ship. Cruisemates.com does have an informative review on their website. If you hear anything please let me know.

John

We just published a story about her sister ship, the Nieuw Amsterdam, which is slated to leave service very soon to go to become the Patriot sailing in Hawaii.

In April 2000 this ship went into drydock for $2,000,000 of maintenance work. I do not believe she was stretched because this amount of money wouldn't cover that and it would have taken more than the one week she was tied up. The maintenance was needed, and work on cabins had started while we were on her in March and early April. She's a wonderfully friendly ship, very attractive and we've taken four cruises on her. The Maasdam (S-class) is more spacious and would be my favorite.
