Default Noordam October 14th 2006

Would like to know if anyone been on this ship yet and what they think. Anyone going on our cruise? Any tips from New Yorkers about how we spend our few days pre-cruise? What sort of weather would we expect mid October? How long on ship before it heats up? Been to New York once before. Previously been on the Zuiderdam last October and loved it. This will be our 6th cruise with various lines. Usually sail from Florida.

We were on the Noordam last April and loved the ship, in fact we are sailing on her again in January.

The colours of the Noordam are more subdued than the Zuideram, so I am sure you will notice quite a difference.

The Noordam has the Explorations Cafe which is a combination of the Zuiderdam's Windstar Cafe/Internet Cafe and Library.

Mid October weather might be a little cool, but then again it could be very nice, so make sure you take some clothes for cooler weather, like a light jacket and long pants.

If it's cool in New York the day you board, then you should be into warmer weather the next day at sea.

Have a great time.

Thanks for the info. It does look a lovely ship. Looking forward to the experience of sailing out of New York. Going with sister in law and her hubby for their silver wedding. We've tried a few different companies, but find the Holland have all the finishing touches. Enjoy yours!

Hello swanson,
We are going on your cruise on Oct 14th **edited to remove commerical reference, another cruise online group like cruisemates.

We are about 50 strong and adding and also associate with each other onboard. We also have a Roll Call that will be used to organize a Meet & Greet onboard scheduled for the first day at sea.


To answer your questions abit:
See: Sightsee NYC Ground Zero, Downtown, Midtown, Theater, St Patricks etc.. If at a Hotel, ask your front desk for books and folders about NYC Tourism.
Weather: We are experiencing a cool period at this time and hope for a good day for sailing. Also we are monitoring the weather in the Atlantic & Caribbean for the hurricane possible threats. But for the local weather we will watch from the 1st to the 8th for 8days and 15days forecasts. So we have abit of time to wait.
Heat Up: We very much hope by the next day at see no later then the second day. We generally see a different the first day at sea unless weather in the Atlantic changes that.

We are celebrating our 30th Wed Annv & my parents 62nd Wed Annv.
