Very nice first cruise

Sail Date: April 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

I spent about $1k for a seven night cruise traveling solo ("single supplement"). The Eurodam was and looked new. The staff was terrific, the food was great (especially the main/formal dining room), and I had a very enjoyable, relaxing time. The ports weren't very interesting, but I really wasn't doing the cruise for that anyway. San Juan, PR, was the most interesting but due to time constraints and the threat of traffic, I didn't venture far from the port. The other ports were pretty, but not much to see.

The food was my main concern and I was very satisfied. I discovered that the reason I haven't liked lobster in the past is that I never had it prepared well until I went on this cruise. I loved the soups and deserts and the staff was happy to give me seconds.

The entertainment was OK, but not something I got really excited about. But that's probably because I'm not a fan of song and dance shows. They had a magician and a comedian that were more to my liking. The More string quartet was OK, but they could use a little more practice on Bach's Brandenburg #3.

I'll be going on my second cruise soon, but the ship will be a bit older and I'm worried I'll be disappointed after enjoying Eurodam. Less

Cabin review: Eurodam Large or Standard Interior Stateroom Main

Cabin attendants were very nice and did a great job of cleaning and preparing my cabin each day.

Port and Shore Excursions


Pleasant beach experience, but nothing to write home about.

Old town was very interesting. I was advised not to try to see anything else due to traffic/time constraints.
