Holland America.. a different perspective
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
This ship is beautiful, spacious and alive with color. The staff was friendly, helpful, and made the cruise so enjoyable. From sailaway parties to entertainment, to trivia there was always something happening around the ship. Brent Roberts the CD did an awesome job.
One of the highlights was a midnight chocolate buffet.. in all of our cruises I have never seen anything like this fantastic spead.
Our ports were Grand Turk, St. Thomas, and San Juan. Grand Turk's was Margaritaville, and collecting sea glass in the beautiful blue waters. St. Thomas was visiting the second oldest synagogue in the western hemisphere and the Ice Bar. This is a More fantastic place.. beautiful ice, coats, mittens, and a chance to drink in 7 degree temps in a 90 degree world! San Juan we took the free trolley around town and visited both of the forts. I love history so this was awesome. After that it was off to Senor Frogs.
We were supposed to go to Half Moon Cay, but due to an emergency of a "missing person" The first call was like at 5:15 am on thursday morning, and so all Thursday and Friday we were stuck in the middle of the water with the coast guard. After finally being released, it was sailing back to Fort Lauderdale.
Kudos have to go to the Captain and Staff for the way this emergency was handled. Professionally, Politely, and with respect.
Why did I state about the difference? The last time we were on a Holland ship I vowed never to return. The Eurodam and her staff has certainly changed our minds, and we will definately be booking her again. Less
