anyone have favorite pre-dinner cocktail bar on the Noordam? Also what's it take to get one of the "dam boat" tee-shirts?" my sister-in-law would love one.I bought them in the gift shop in February. I'm sure it's a standard item.
I'll have to try the Ocean Bar. We had dinner on the lower level last year and always went to the Explorers lounge after dinner. They had live music there too, but no dancing.
Although we have not sailed on the noordam, we have certainly cruised on quite a few other dam ships and we love the Crow's Nest.Don't tell them that!

And my impression is that that's where the classical chamber music usually is - which is lovely after dinner if you want a restful idyll before retiring for the evening.

That's a tough one...each bar has its own, special touch. We have enjoyed the Ocean Bar, Explorer's Lounge and the Piano Bar, depending on the 'vibe' of the moment. You are fortunate to be looking forward to the lovely Noordam. Enjoy the anticipation and have a wonderful cruise! (You too, 'mom'...have a great time!! )Hi caribbean girl! When is your cruise on the Westerdam? We leave on Wednesday...same as Carol and Sam.
By the way, I think you forgot your eyedrops last year?? And I forgot my ear drops for swimming...make sure you check your packing list, ok? It's still a bit early for us to pack but I am not forgetting those drops again this year...we had to look for them in St. Maarten when we visited friends on the island last year. Luckily, they knew a local pharmacy.
