The Cruise on MS Noordam

return to Spain


DSCN0085     The Cruise  (click for photos).  We left Ft. Lauderdale on Holland America’s MS Noordam.  Our route will take us across the Atlantic for 7 days.  Our first stop will be Ponta Delgada, The Azores.  Then 2 days at sea followed by stops at Cadiz, Malaga, Cartgena another day at sea – and then Barcelona.  What a great journey.  The days were unhurried.  We had a great aft deck.  Plenty of food – including a few special dinners.  Lots of entertainment, educational opportunities, a casino, a gym, etc.  Lots of wine – we had drink cards!  There were games, lots of reading – and plenty of relaxing.  Crossing what is essentially near the north of the Atlantic Ocean – there were some rough seas.  One night, the dishes went crashing and the doors were banging – we had hit gale force seas and winds.  The captain explained the weather was a result of an unual ‘vortex’ whatever that is.  Regardless – after they deployed the ship’s stabilizer system – all went well afterward.  Love the ship, love the food, loved the companions, loved the sea, loved the ports of call.  No one should pass up this trip if the opportunity ever arises.

My YouTube video clips.  I could have posted bunches – but decided to give just a ‘taste’ of our 14 day cruise.  The big thing was the wild seas – enjoy!
