The newest of the Vista-class ships, the Noordam continues Holland America's tradition of comfortable, elegant and classy ships. There's no shortage of spectacular views from this ship. The two-tiered Vista Dining Room is located in the aft of the ship and offers panoramic views of the sea. The signature Crow's Nest Lounge gives a bird's-eye view from the top of the ship. Eighty-five percent of the ship's cabins have ocean views, and nearly 80% of those have private balconies. One of the most unique features is the Culinary Arts Center, a state-of-the-art show kitchen with plasma video screens and cooking display counters -- a must-see for food and wine enthusiasts. Other activities and amenities include a video arcade, basketball and volleyball courts, and fitness center.
