Hi Michael,

It appears that the first ship with the name SS Noordam began service in 1902.
"SS Noordam (1902) was the first Noordam, a transatlantic ocean liner of 12,528 gross tons built at Harland and Wolff, operating mostly from Rotterdam to New York between 1902 and 1927."

You can search for manifests for ship Noordam, or any other ship, or search by passenger name, at Steve Morse's portal to Ancestry's database:

Can anyone guide me to emigrant records from Antwerp as early as 1885?  I've seen material for later years but not that early.  I have a particular interest in the SS Noordam (Antwerp/NY) but others will be of interest as well.
Thank you,
