FIRST CRUISE - WILL BE HARD TO TOP!!

Sail Date: March 2009
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

March 21-28 sailing:

Let me get the bad stuff out of the way first...We were supposed to Grand Turks, San Juan, St. Thomas and Half-Moon Cay. Grand Turks was not possible due to high winds and worse seas, but that didn't dampen our experience. Yes, everybody looked drunk for the first couple of days because the ship was rockin' and rollin', but what do you expect in bad weather.

The Eurodam is a modern beautiful ship with every amenity you can think of. Under the circumstance of bad weather, she performed nicely. We were bummed that we missed our excursion on Grand Turks (Dune Buggys), but we were safe and I'd rather be on this ship than at home anyday. We were fully refunded our fee for the excursion and port taxes we would have incurred.

Food on the Eurodam...Lido cafeteria style was terrific! Rembrandt Room superb and the Pinnacle Grill was fanciful full of flavor.

Mixed drinks were around $7, and were great. Anything that came More in a bottle or can was extra. Meaning if it was bottled water or soda, you pay. I don't think this is right and all drinks that do not contain alcohol should be free. Wasn't a deal breaker though, tap water was delicious.

Cabin Steward Eko: Wonderful young man with a heart of gold. He and his assistant took care of us so well, we wanted to bring them home with us. Our room was always clean and tidy, sometimes 2, 3 or 4 times a day he would visit our stateroom.

Would I sail on the Eurodam again? Oh absolutely YES! If you didn't enjoy yourself, shame on you! You missed a great time! Less

Port and Shore Excursions


San Juan Bacardi Rum tour left a lot to be desired due to the fact that we wanted to see actual production lines up close and they show a movie instead. The St. Christobol fort was wonderful and amazing at the same time.

Our Snorkel, Hike (stroll) and Kayak at St. Thomas was terrific and I would have done that all day. Could have done without the ECO lecture that went along with it, but it was still a great adventure. After paying $89 buck/head for this excursion of 3 hours, asking for donations at the end was kind of distasteful. They make plenty on the tour fee and sourveniors you buy without having to ask for donations at the end. Shopping on St. Thomas was haggle city. I don't like shopping and having people try to smoke screen me or dazzle me with their brilliance. High pressure doesn't begin to discribe some of these people. Good deals to be had if you can get past the bull.
