travel42 Cruise Ship Review: Holland America Line Noordam

Noordam travel42 Professional Ship Review

The cruise liner Noordam completed the four points of the compass for Holland America Line. With Noord, Dutch for north, the 81,769-ton Noordam along with Zuiderdam (south), Oosterdam (east) and Westerdam (west) make up HAL's Vista-class quartet, entering service between December 2002 and February 2006.

Although the four ships share much in common, the Noordam is far more toned down than the jazzy Zuiderdam, apart from the occasional ornamentation to dazzle.
