Cabin 8025
Sep 2016
The Eurodam's crew is outstanding! By: discerningedinburgh
I booked within a few weeks of sail date so had no choice. I got what was left. Cabin 8025 is Forward on The Starboard (odd) side. This is a wheelchair accessible cabin. I can't comment on whether the facilities for wheelchair users are better or worse as I've no experience of this. I can tell you though that there is more floor space. A ramp in & out of verandah. A walk in shower (instead of shower over bath) with waist grab rails, towel hooks & shower seat. The curtains open & close at the push of a button by the bed. The Verandah is longer but not as deep. It's sticks out so you're in full view of other cabins. Compared to a Celebrity Solstice Class Concierge Cabin it felt dated, looked tired with some visible minor cosmetic damage to lower walls. The Air Conditioning Unit roared for 12 days. It was always on, never cut off and is centrally controlled. Maintenance added some deafening material to the ceiling unit which dulled the noise a bit but I found it difficult to sleep with constant air flow and white noise! The wardrobe storage is ample with hanging & shelves. There is a safe & minibar. A flat screen tv with excellent choice of free movies and box sets, all the usual news channels & informative port overviews. It is not interactive like Celebrity, you cannot check your bill or book restaurants etc.There are European & Us sockets and USB charger ports. Hairdryer, Bathrobe & Make Up mirror. There was significant vibration in this cabin even when the ship was docked. My parents had cabin 8112. An aft Port side (even) verandah cabin in a traditional cabin layout. Be aware that the bathroom is a shower over bath. The bath is low sided and their is a grab rail but as they are 80 ...they had to be careful. Their location was close to both aft & mid ship elevators and very handy to nip up to deck 9 Lido for cups of tea!

Cabin 4054, 4068

Great First Cruise on HAL By: Bob_plus_Four
4054 is a great cabin because of the extra size balcony, although not quite as private as most. Location is good. Although over public spaces, they were the activities rooms for the card playing and classes, so no noise. Otherwise obeyed the cardinal rule of cabins to each side and above. 4068 is a standard obstructed view cabin, lots of light but limited view. Good value and better than an inside cabin.

Cabin 4053
Apr 2016
Good location, Midship cabin on the starboard side of the ship, This cabin is located at the start of the lifeboats on deck 4. It has a larger that normal balcony, bordered on one side by the a disabled cabin, and, to the other a lifeboat. As the balcony extends to the width of the lifeboat, it it overlooked by the cabins on the upper decks, so the only privacy is right outside the veranda door. Not that all the doors/windows are mirrored glass, making the interior seem very dark and gloomy, both in the cabins and elsewhere on the ship. Air conditioning can only be adjusted for heat, not speed - I was driven mad by the noise of it all night long, it was very, very loud Good sized bathroom with bath, shower overhead, toilet and sink. There is a shaving point in the bathroom, above the sink at ceiling height. Anyone needing to apply makeup will have to do it in the bathroom, as due to the lighting in the cabin and at the dressing table, you cannot see to use it. Hair drying needs to be done at the dressing table, as the only two power point are located there. Comfy bed, but if you opt for single beds, you will not have the use of a duvet, only thin cover, making for a chilly night. Small couch with fabric seat and fake leather back to it - the plastic smelled awful. Small minibar, where you pay for everything, water included. These items are not covered by your beverage pack, not are drinks ordered on room service. The wardrobes are terrible, you have to leave the bathroom door open and all lights on in the cabin and bathroom to even attempt to see anything in the wardrobe. The biggest problem with that being that you cannot see into the safe, nor see when you are coding it. Cramped cabin, big veranda, but watch out for the water being emptied onto yours during cabin cleaning. and the paint splatters hittin the deck of the veranda - my mother and I both had to abandon sitting on the veranda due to liquids coming from above on various days. The balcony never got used much due to this inconvenience. We were given towels for use off the ship (which of course would cost if lost). I had to repeatedly ask to get the bath robes for the cabin, but they appeared eventually. My elderly mother was in 4071 (outside cabin few doors along) which had an obstructed view between lifeboats, with a floor to ceiling window, and a walkway for the crew for lifeboat maintenance. identical layout, though, as she had no balcony, the bed was at the window end, with the couch opposite the dressing table. as you entered the centre of the cabin. Despite being a party travelling together, we were allocated different lifeboats.

Wonderful Cruise! By: vmarin01
Cabin was nice. We were in the aft section of the ship, deck 8 Navigation Deck. Balcony was a good size. On occasion we might hear some chairs being moved on the Lido Deck above us. We slept very well in this room and recommend it. We wish we had a larger tub though, it was rather small. Love the robes, we ended up taking two home with us for about $49, they are very soft and cozy! You can have them monogrammed for a small charge, but need to let your steward know 48 hours in advance, which we forgot to do. The mini fridge was convenient and the tv was nice and large unlike other ships we have been on.

Eurodam: Good Ship By: slabeaume
Apparently there are 4 of these VA rooms---1 on either side of the lifeboats, so they're a little deeper then the life boats are wide (about 14'). I read a lot of mixed reviews about those rooms. Some people liked the extra space, others didn't because most of the veranda wasn't covered and, therefore, didn't have privacy. We booked a guarantee V, so I was happy to get a veranda with the clear railings and these extra deep ones even came with loungers as well as the usual 2 chairs, ottoman, and side table. I'd say the actual covered area of our veranda was about what the regular verandas have. The cabin was the same as most of the rest of the veranda cabins. Location was great---near the front elevators. The room was quiet. No complaints with our cabin or veranda.

Lovely Cruise By: FunGranny
We would select this cabin again. The location was great, midway between mid and aft elevators and one flight down from the Lido. it was a quiet room with no noise from above. The room was nicely decorated and clean! The bedding was very comfortable. The towels large and fluffy. Three closets but not many drawers but you can use vanity seat/ hassock for storage. This room was very comfortable for two adults but may be a little cramped for three adults

The cabin was smaller than other cabins I have had on HAL ships but adequate. Verandah needs different seating as the "wicker" chairs were very uncomfortable.

Transatlantic cruise is not a cruise that's good for a balcony. Opening a balcony door was usually met with 40 to 50 mph winds. The room was comparable to every other cruise line, nothing more special, even those Holland American is suppose to be a more upper end cruise line. Noise would be what you expect in a Motel / Hotel.

Excellent Baltic Adventure By: wheelchairtraveler
Balcony is partially obstructed by a metal piece. This is not disclosed in the description of a Superior Verandah. 3 adults shared this room. It was roomier than most cabins, and I was able to more around in my wheelchair. The bathroom was roomy, and user friendly with two exceptions: the rails in the bathroom were not very useful, and pull down rails by the toilet would be more useful. Access to the verandah was difficult, with a small rise in an inconvenient position. There is a pillar in the middle of the room, which made getting near the closets difficult in a wheelchair. There really wasn't enough closet space. The room was at the end of the hall, with very little traffic outside, and was very quiet. The 'contemporary' decor advertised as the Eurodam decor looses its sparkle in the stateroom. The variable shade beige wall coverings might have been nicer when first install, but now they are just dingy and look soiled. We had a dark, depressing picture by the bed. Since we were out and about most of the time, the room decor was not so bad. If I were on a long cruise, or spent much time there I would find it oppressive.Our room stewards were friendly, helpful, and efficient. The room was always clean and tidy.

7143 was an aft cabin and very spacious. the balcony too was larger and good for sightseeing as it was not windy. the aft cabin views are ...literally...in hindsight ...one sees things moving away...being left behind. this doesnt quite compare with seeing things come into view. it was a quiet location.7135 was a few doors away from 7143..again a quiet location. this was decent sized too though less open space than 7143. suitcases can be pushed under the bed in both rooms. storage was sufficent for us.

Typical verandah, two wicker chairs and small table. On deck 7, or Rotterdam deck, forward of midships. Nice bed, extra pillows, some smell in toilet which they finally overcame by putting something in the water, which worked well. Closet space reasonable, no noise in hall even though cabin is just around the corner from the elevators

Older Crowd By: dre714
We like to be mid ship so chose a cabin accordingly. We did overlook the lifeboats which seemed to stick out more than other ships we have been on. It was not obtrusive and did not obstruct our view but I would avoid being over them in the future.

Eurodam 1/26/13 By: denton1
6166 is an aft verandah cabin. The balcony is bigger, but the cabin is a touch smaller because of the curve of the stern. Instead of a sofa, it has 2 chairs. Otherwise it is identical to all other verandah cabins. The view is great!

Great balcony and not far from elevators. Ship movements were exaggerated but I think that is because we were on Deck 8. The Lido is right about the cabin and everyday there was some rattling noise coming from upstairs that was quite loud. If we had stayed in the cabin more I am sure it would have been annoying.

Long and narrow. The bathroom was a bit larger than on other ships and has a deep tub. I don't know if this is standard for all the rooms or not. Closet space is somewhat limited but adequate. The balcony has room for two chairs and a small table. There is a love seat and small chair at one end, with a coffee table so you don't have to sit on the bed all the time. Flat screen TV. Nice carpet/decor. Excellent bed.

Mar 2012
- I had to report a problem with the bathroom : indeed impossible to have a constant temperature, especially in the shower (the water goes from cold to hot), despite several interventions, the problem has never been resolved; - problem of evacuation of water in the sink in the bathroom: problem solved within 48 hours; - mold in the bathroom, and hair on the floor; - a persistent puddle at the bottom of the tub; - Air conditioning is loud and the fan is installed just above the bed is not very nice to receive a - direct and prolonged fresh air on yourself; - the cabin door to access the balcony is not practical at all: it is heavy to handle, take up much space on the balcony and does not in the open position and a sliding door (like all other companies) would more convenient and less dangerous; - a tiny television in the cabin;

Overall Great Value By: delgados129
Nice, very comfortable cabin. Plenty of closet space. A bit tricky learnign how to work the motorized curtains...the button that operates them are all the way on the other side of the bed and their not marked. From a design perspective, you would expect them to be in close proximity to the curtains. TV could have a better selection of programming for news outlets...no business news like Bloomberg, CNBC or Fox Business network. While at sea, we caught up on a few movies with the free DVD rentals.

Cabin 7143
Feb 2012
Rotterdam Deck #7143 ~ Dim, Dark & Smelly. While the cabin smelled & looked clean at first glance, the closets reeked of stale cigarettes. We kept majority of our clean clothes in our suitcases so they didn't smell and used the closet for dirty ones. If you use the closets, you'll need a flashlight/book light as they are not well lit. In 7 days, we didn't spend 10 minutes on our balcony -- what a waste of money -- and in our past balcony cruises, we ate breakfast every morning out there and spent much time in the evenings & while in port enjoying it. Being on the back was the kicker I believe, because opening the door was like turning on a suction machine drawing all the smoke from surrounding cabins right inside ours and if you were out there, it was unbearable. I do really think it was the aft location because we've been on both Celebrity & Princess side balconies, and while it would occasionaly annoy us, it certainly didn't keep us from being out there & enjoying ourselves.

Not enough shelving, but ample closet space. Large bathroom, full tub and shower. Comfortable beds, couch for two, small desk. Balcony slightly larger on the Navigation deck Aft than the VA cabins facing the sides - about 2 feet more deep. Good overhang on Navigation aft makes balcony completely private, and sheltered from rain and spray, but still short enough to get some sun. Quiet - very little hall noise as it's at the aft, very little noise from pool deck above except for during the day, with the occasional chair noise.

Our cabin VA5188, was comfortable with adequate room to relax and store our belongings. Close to dining room. Good balcony to enjoy sunsets or take photos of our ports of call. No distracting noises and only mild vibration occasionally from the engines. No noticeable sign of rolling or movement from the ship. It was a great experience!

Madame The Eurodam By: Miss Independence
On deck 8 just below the Lido deck. Great position. No noisy rooms overhead and close enough to the lifts. Balcony was adequate and we enjoyed it apart from the smokers next door. Room smaller than we expected but big enough - see review for more information. We heard no noise from the cabins each side and I hope they did not hear us as we spent night after night coughing. Cleaning was not as good as on previous ships but not worth complaint although I don't think the balcony was cleaned at all.

Cabin 4182

Cabin 4182 Eurodam. Aft cabin smack dab in the center(wake-watcher)- very nice. The room was long, but somewhat narrow which made for difficulty retrieving items from the small, dark closets. The verandah was quite large (8.75'Wide x 6.5'Deep). The bathroom was ok excepting no storage space for normal bathroom goodies. There was no noise other than normal ship sounds, and the ride was totally smooth.

7119 - typical veranda with tub, two hanging closets and pull down shelf and closet with shelves and safe. 2 chairs and little table on veranda. Comfortable bed. Not a lot of movement in cabin on crossing compared to other areas on the ship- away from hallway activity but close to elevators for restaurants.

Cabin 8171
May 2011
Our room was 8171, at the very aft, next door to the suite with the wrap-around balcony. I would not recommend this room if you have issues with noise. Our crossing was fairly rough, so people were not eating around the aft pool, but once the weather settled down, and they did eat there, we continually heard moving of chairs. Our room was small - barely enough room to cross between the bed and the wall, but we did have a small sitting area with couch and table, and our balcony was large enough for 2 chairs, small footstool, and very small table.

Just a reminder for those who book on the Navigation deck floor #8: There was a lot of moving furniture right above our cabin especially in San Juan. They were setting up a buffet on the pool deck above us. We did complain as it appeared that the towel rack was above us too. There was a lot of movement of people walking on a daily basis. The ship apologized with a plate of chocolates, just what we did not need! (repeated from above)
