Eurodam Exceeded Expectations

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

After a Mexican Riviera cruise on the Rotterdam in 2010 during Christmas and New Years I swore to never cruise again due to the crowds. We had a penthouse suite but was disappointed with the condition of the ship and poor service. The Eurodam delighted us with her clean, contemporary lines. Sailing one week prior to the holidays was a great choice. We got to enjoy the nice holiday decorations without the crowds.

The Eurodam's size was surprising. My wife and I were pleased that the public spaces were larger and and more open than the Rotterdam but we didn't really feel that another 900 or so guests were on board. The only negative was an annoying shudder felt on the ship which has been much reported.

With suite status embarkation was swift and we were in our room 7067 in one hour. Our two stewards Denie and Asef were outstanding. We loved the Neptune Lounge service, the free laundry, and the other perks, particularly breakfast each morning in the Pinnacle Grill. More Ports of call were all delightful and we especially liked the beaches on Grand Turk and Half Moon Cay. While many complained that the day at HMC was ruined because of a slight customs delay and another ship, the Amsterdam at the same time, we just went with the flow and enjoyed our time at the beach.

Many passengers seemed disappointed with As You Wish dining and we saw many people waiting in line for tables. We booked the 8:00 seating in the MDR and were pleased with the food quality and the service. We never experienced delays, the wine steward knew her trade, and we really enjoyed the dining experience. The spa was outstanding on the ship- we cant wait to return to the relaxing tiled beds?

Cabin review: Eurodam Deluxe Verandah Suite Rotterdam 7067

Great storage, layout, and bed comfort. Deck was a little shallow and missed the full length chaise loungers we had on the Rotterdam.
