I was scanning cruises in the Baltic for 2017 when this 2016 cruise to both the Baltic AND the Norwegian Fjords and Scottish Highlands showed up. I learned on the ship it was really 2 back-to-back cruises and many of the passengers were ... Read more

The Baltic is a wonderful place to cruise, with many interesting ports. However, St. Petersburg has to be the most wonderful port of all. We saved several hundred dollars there by using Alla Tours rather than excursions from the ship. All ... Read more

We love Holland America and we wanted to see the Baltic. Nearly all of the ports were wonderful, and St. Petersburg was the standout. It's a MUST VISIT place. Our ship's staff, food, stateroom and common rooms were great, as we have ... Read more

SHIP – The Eurordam is a good size ship. We enjoy the mid to smaller size cruise ship and this fit right in to that - not the mega-ships. Even though the ship was sold-out, there were still plenty of places to sit and read and relax ... Read more

This is my first review that I have put on here that I was not blown away by the cruise. This cruise on the Eurodam was very lacking considering this was my 6th one with HAL 3rd on the Eurodam. To start the services with the room ... Read more

We enjoyed a 7 day cruise to Norway (with a stop at Gothenburg). The ship's crew is very friendly and all did their utmost to make our vacation easy, interesting and fun. Of course the negatives are usually the same: the wifi is ... Read more

We have been on about 14 cruises, various lines, and multiple HAL ones. This had it's share of good and bad and ugly. The ship is getting old and a little shabby, but otherwise OK. They should paint the hallways of the staterooms ... Read more

We did the paper work and embarked quickly for our cruise to Norwegian fjords. We headed to our stateroom and found our luggage was already there. We decided to go and grab a bite of lunch before unpacking. Lunch in the Lido was quite ... Read more

Eurodam Review Firstly a considerable difference to the better after having been on the Arcadia of P&O UK, a few weeks ago. However, what is most disappointing is the constant effort of the crew to offer you something and then ... Read more

I've cruised approx. 8 times on other cruise lines, mainly Princess. This was my first cruise with HAL. I found the vibration of the ship, even in port, to be excessive. I've never experienced anything like it. It made me nauseous. ... Read more

I really liked the Eurodam and the semi obstructed oceanview cabin was a really nice size and very comfortable. Dining was excellent and the service on board was really quite good. There was a huge variety of food available in the ... Read more

SHIP: The ship was good size with lots of options for eating, drinking, walking, exercising, relaxing, or reading. It was very clean with hand sanitizer dispensers spread throughout the ship. The pool was a little on the small size, but ... Read more

Agree with many other folks that the Eurodam is definitely in need of a facelift - tired furnishings & worn appearance. Shore excursions add HUGE dollars to your overall cost. Yes, the liquor policy is very restrictive; each person ... Read more

Generally the ship was "tired" even though it's not very old. Carpeting, wall paper, furniture and bathrooms were all shabby and in need of updating. Food in the Lido and Rembrandt went from mediocre to terrible with service ... Read more

We (late 50's couple) did the 12-day Baltic cruise in July 2015. This was our 2nd cruise on HAL (9th cruise overall) and after this cruise, I think HAL may become our "go-to" cruise line. Design of the Ship -- I want to ... Read more

In summary it was very nice and Holland America is a good cruise line. That said I like Celebrity and Norweigan better (though Norweigan is a number of years ago now so not sure my information is current on them). St Petersburg was ... Read more
