Dreadful ship

Mar 19th, 2020

This ship Is tired and old fashioned. There was no evening life on board. All bars deserted by around 11pm. Certainly not the life and soul of the party

Noir dam is a good size ship, not too big. A chance to meet and revisit with many passengers. Clean and well maintained. Service was very good. Biggest flaw was the food...

Ship changing operational day to day basis

Would recommend anyone who has never visited NZ it will allow you to see what you would do on land as the ship does not stay long in port for you to explore but all cruise lines do this We were a small group of 4 people

Wonderful cruise & ports of call

Jan 28th, 2020

We had a great cruise & enjoyed visiting such great ports from Sydney to New Zealand. The crew & staff of the ship made it a special experience. Ship had to institute safety protocols due to norovirus, on day 2 of our voyage which lasted the rest of the trip. Only downside of the cruise but the staff & crew handled it well. Thank you to Lexie, the wonderful club HAL staff member who was fantastic with our kids! Also to John who was a friendly & outgoing bar staff who always made a point to say hello to our family & entertain our kids with a magic trick. Our kids nicknamed him Johndini....after Houdini :) Room stewards were also very friendly, helpful & accommodating. While this cruise line seems to generally accommodate a more mature age group, our family was made to feel welcomed & appreciated by the staff & crew of the Noordam.

Lovely New Zealand sampler cruise

Jan 21st, 2020

Overall, HAL did an excellent job. The itinerary was excellent, and the number of sea days was not excessive. I would always like more overnights, but we were satisfied,for the most part, with the amount of time in port. This cruise is a real tease - New Zealand and Tasmanis are gorgeous and fascinating, and the cruise really whetted our appetites for more of these countries.
