Approximately the last 10 days the ship was on lockdown due to the Norovirus

Dec 11th, 2019

I was disappointed by the lack of protocols on dealing with the norovirus. I had heard from a friend who took the ship back to Sydney and they never did lift the protocols they finally put down on the cruise I was on

Great Australia and New Zealand Cruise

Nov 26th, 2019

This was a bucket list trip for us and we were not disappointed. New Zealand is a very scenic country and all of the locals we met were very warm and welcoming. Enjoyed Australia as well and are very glad we had four full days to explore Sydney before the cruise began. The Noordam is a midsized ship that is getting older, but the recent refurbish gave the ship a newer feel (we also sailed on the Noordam in 2014 and it seemed more worn at that time).

Awesome Trip

Nov 13th, 2019

Overall, this was an excellent trip. We like sea days and had plenty of them. Ports were good for the most part, with some better than others. Food, crew, staff and atmosphere on the ship were superb. HAL is more like cruising should be instead of the mega-ships that want to bring amusements and the town atmosphere to sea instead of emphasizing the cruise aspect.

Amazing experience in Alaska

Sep 25th, 2019

Our family of 4 went on the cruise from Alaska to Vancouver, something I had wanted to do my entire life growing up in Alaska. I moved away to college 30 years ago and then on to the East Coast. I went back with my family so they could see it with me. The scenery and cruise far exceeded all of my expectations. It was my first cruise and I had heard various thoughts on cruises in general on various cruise lines and destinations. This cruise was excellent in every way, on the ship and off. I recommend it whole heartedly to everyone.
