Ship Facts: Eurodam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Eurodam Deck Plans
Eurodam by Glenn and Darlene
Pleas e enter your review My wife and I combined this cruise on Holland American Line's Eurodam with a pre= and post=cruise stays in New York City and Quebec City. To Control our itinerary and costs we chose to book our own air travel and hotels. In New York City we stayed in the Affinia Garden Hotel in New York's Upper Eastside. It was an excellent hotel in a quiet residential area with good delis nearby. In Quebec City we stayed in the Auberge Ste Antoine Hotel which is right across the street from where the Eurodam docked! It is a classy hotel with an efficient staff and has one of the best restaurants in all of Canada! It is a short walk to the funicular which carries you up to the old town and the Chateau Frontenac.

Prior to the trip we had completed the usual boarding paper work via the internet so the actual boarding process was very smooth and quick. They started boarding passengers at about 11 am. Lunch was available in the Lido. Our cabin was available as advertised at 1 pm

The ship is beautiful and huge! Even with 2000 plus passengers we never had to wait long for anything nor did we feel "crowded." Lots of deck lounge chairs were always available.The crowd control during embarkation, shore excursions and debarkations was excellent. Members of the crew were universally efficient and friendly. The ship's library had lots books and DVDs.

Our cabin was large and had lots of storage space. The bathroom was the best we've ever had. It had two wash basins, jacuzzi tub and a separate shower stall. The veranda was large with comfortable furniture. Each night our cabin attendant left a different towel animal sculpture on our bed with the chocolates.

The food in the Lido was the best we've ever had on any ship's Lido. The food in the Pinnacle Grill was also excellent as it is on any of HAL's ships. The food selection and quality in the main Rembrandt dining room was only fair and not up to what we have learned to expect on HAL ships.

Cruise Specialists, our agent, provided complimentary cocktail receptions on board and also gave us a nice shore excursion in the Quebec City area.
