Noordam – New Views

You’ve likely noticed that many of my posts focus on the new… Dry docks, new staterooms, new concepts of restaurants and public rooms. But sometimes, a new appreciation for a ship can come with new views. The Noordam, for instance, recently had a new photo shoot and many of the images of Noordam have been updated/refreshed.

As one of the newest ships in the fleet (launched in 2006) Noordam has had minimal changes to her public rooms and no changes to her exterior. As the last in the Vista series, she carried 1916 guests as opposed to the sisters built for 1848 and had a steeper aft profile. Deck 3 became the home of the Explorations Cafe with Barista instead of the sisters with separate Internet Centers and Erasmus Libraries and Windstar Cafes on Deck 2 midship.

Exceptions of Canaletto in the Lido at night and conversion of a meeting room to th Digital Workshop, the deck plans have remained the same on Noordam from the beginning. So while there may not be a lot of new public rooms, conversions of old spaces and post-launch expanded aft decks, there are now some new views of the ship that many regard as a classic amongst the fleet. Have a look.
