ms Noordam - Ship Description
The fourth ship belonging to the prestigious Vista Series, Noordam blends shipbuilding technology with Holland America's Signature of Excellence, which includes gracious, unobtrusive service, five-star dining, and extensive enrichment and activity programs. The ship effortlessly accommodates up to 1,918 passengers. Four exterior glass elevators whisk passengers along 11 vertical decks while offering panoramic ocean views. Guests can also soak up scenery and salt air from the comfort and privacy of their staterooms--85% feature ocean views and 67% include balconies.
The Vista Series features expanded spa and children's facilities, more dining and entertainment options than ever before, duty-free shopping, and activities to suit every style. The Greenhouse Spa offers an array of tantalizing body treatments from massages to aromatherapy sessions. Strolling along the ship's promenade decks, swimming in three separate pools, or perfecting your game on the sports courts are just a few of the active options, and exercise enthusiasts won't miss a health-conscious beat with onboard workouts in the fitness center. Other enriching activities revolve around the Explorer Speaker Series and the Culinary Arts Center.
Dining and entertainment options abound. With four savory restaurants, passengers can find aft dining areas with expansive views over the rear of the ship, or enjoy a more casual meal in the Lido. Broadway-style shows take to the stage in the three-tiered theatre, while the more intimate, cabaret-style lounge hosts vocalists, comedians, magicians, and other performers. The casino thrums with exciting blackjack tables, slot machines, and dice, poker, and roulette tables. Unwind with cocktails and conversation at the Piano Bar, send email messages from the Internet Cafe, or relax with a cappuccino. Then, dance the night away in the signature Crow's Nest and Observation Deck.
