Ship Facts: Eurodam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Eurodam Deck Plans
Eurodam in Canada New England

Embarkation at Manhattan was fairly swift, although the lines were long the staff were efficient and courteous. This was the first time on Hal and we were pleasantly surprised at the spacious cabins and the amount of hanging space ( never ones to travel light).

Lunch at the Lido was standard and plentiful but there were far less staff than we were used to on other cruise lines. In Hal,s favour there was no self service for the first 48 hours to reduce the chances of any norovirus.

The biggest disappointment was the lack of on board entertainment, the ship resembled the Marie Celeste as most of the passengers were in bed by 9.30 p.m. Lack of enthusiasm by entertainment staff and passengers. Nothing was organised on deck and if you did not knit or play cards then there were no thing that excited.

Having missed the first sitting for dinner on the first night we proceeded to the Lido at 8.30 p.m only to find it closed. A lonely pizza was on offer on deck 11 and like the cook it was cold and lacklustre

We had selected the first seating for dinner, this was advertised as 6.00 p.m but was in fact at 5.30 pm instead. the food was excellent however the portions were tiny and my other half ended up eating all the bread rolls.

We had chosen this cruise because of the ports of call and this certainly did not disappoint with Boston and Quebec being outstanding , easily accessible by foot and with the information given port side we were able to see lots of interesting sights.

Having cruised with many other cruise lines my expectations were high but this cruise fell well below . We were completely bored on this ship and feel that it is indeed geared towards a very elderly clientele. Our first and last with Hal
