Typical Passengers

MS Noordam boasts plenty of details designed to appeal to all ages – it strives to draw the multigenerational crowd so that children, parents and grandparents can all have a blast onboard. Like many HAL cruises, the overall crowd tends to be mature. However, there are dedicated children’s facilities including the Club HAL KidZone with youth counsellors, free ice cream and interconnecting cabins for families. 

Ship Amenities 

On sunny days, there’s no better place to be than outdoors on the MS Noordam with its walk-around teak promenade affording sweeping views of the sparkling ocean below. The traditional theme is carried over into the teak sun loungers and warm wooden accents throughout the ship. Start your day with a few laps around the jogging track, or take the plunge with the two central swimming pools. Children have their own splash pool to play in, while adults can enjoy the whirlpool hot tubs and connecting bar. The interior lobby is quite striking with its dazzling Waterford Crystal globe and glass-walled lifts. This is where you’ll find intriguing artworks reflecting HAL’s Dutch shipping heritage, with an onboard art gallery as well. Have a wander along the twists and turns of the shopping street to visit the ship’s boutiques, photo gallery and card rooms, or spend the evening at the glittering casino for a bit of fun. Another leisure facility is the Explorations lounge, which includes a library, coffee bar, and Internet terminals in one central communications hub. 

Cabin Amenities

There’s a staggering range of price categories on the MS Noordam, with 16 within the outside view category and eight within the interior cabin range! The price will vary according to cabin placement and amenities. All are equipped to a high international standard, so even in the most basic interior cabins, you can expect features like personal safes, built-in storage, a private bathroom with shower, and complimentary toiletries. Personal infotainment systems and fresh fruit are also on hand to greet you. Upgrade to a suite and you’ll benefit from additional living space, private balconies and bathtubs or Jacuzzis as well. 

Dining Options

The Vista Dining Room is MS Noordam’s main restaurant, spread over two levels with panoramic ocean views to enjoy with your dinner. Expect traditional menu choices along with a few lighter bites and vegetarian options to cater for all tastes. Ready for something special? Head to the ship’s Pinnacle Grill, serving premium cuts of meat and freshly-caught seafood dishes with a Pacific Northwest slant. The atmosphere here is elegant, with an extensive wine list to complement the cuisine. Another option is the Lido Café for self-service buffet dishes, from deli sandwiches to stir-fry, sushi to salads, and all the desserts you could ever want. The Terrace Grill rounds out the eateries on offer, with hot dogs, burgers and fries served poolside. 


There’s a full entertainment program both day and night on the MS Noordam. Visit the Queen’s Lounge and Bar to attend a fascinating array of lectures, or the Culinary Arts Centre for live cooking demonstrations and tasting sessions. At night, the Vista Lounge is the main showroom for musical entertainment, with plenty of singing, dancing and sequins. 

Sports and Wellness

There’s no excuse for letting your fitness routine fall by the wayside, with a fully-equipped gym, jogging track, golf simulator and basketball court to tempt you! Or if you’re simply in the mood to unwind, leave onshore stresses behind in the Greenhouse Spa. It offers a lavish thermal suite, private massage rooms, a solarium and a full menu of beauty treatments.

Cottom, Birmingham on 10th Mar 2018

We spent 17 nights on the MS Noordam mainly visiting the east coast of New Zealand. Overall, this was the best cruise line I've travelled with so would totally recommend them to anyone else.
