What a wonderful Holiday cruise we enjoyed on the Eurodam ship for 14- days leaving Ft. Lauderdale on December 22, 2013. If and when you may cruise on the Eurodam ship I would highly recommend that you book one of the cabanas on the Lido deck for your entire cruise, as we did or at least for one or two days for the pure enjoyment of this special treat. Our cabana stewards, Chris for the entire cruise and John for one week as well as Rodel, those gentlemen just doted on us each day. We had a pot of coffee and fruit tray waiting for our arrival each morning and during the day the stewards were at our beck and call. In late afternoon the cabanas were served chocolate covered strawberries and champagne, what a daily treat that was.

Our cabin stewards, Suko and Agus, on deck six, kept our SS class cabin clean and neat each day, and once we left for breakfast they were quick to service our room. And when seeing us during the day always smiling and offering whatever service they could do for us.

We had dinner in each of the specialty restaurants, Pinnacle Grill, Tamarind and the Canaletto and each meal was as expected with great service. We had dinner a few times in the MDR and enjoyed our meals and service. The soups and breads served in the Lido each day were outstanding and the staff always smiling and helpful. The hot oatmeal served in the Lido was always good as well as the bread pudding available during the lunch hour. The staff gem of the ship, service wise, was Nila in the Lido dining area, usually at the juice bar and too in the MDR as a hostess. What a wonderful and pleasant young lady, always smiling, cheerful and ready to serve. After leaning my name she always greeted me by name. The Lido dining area served duck a few times at dinner, if you never had duck, try the Lido duck, it was really good.

The ship was always neat and clean and each staff member when requesting service or information was always smiling and helpful. And that includes the front deck staff, which sometimes seems to get a bad critique.

The HAL Cats band provided us with some good dance music in the Ocean Bar each evening and entertained us a few evenings in the Queen’s Lounge. We only went to one show in the Main stage area and that was to hear a wonderful steel band with a drummer put on a great musical entertainment show. If you enjoy dancing, you will enjoy the Ocean Bar with good music, an attentive staff and good drinks.
