Eurodam A+++++

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

First the embarkation, we got to the terminal around noon and it was a breeze... 20 min at the most and we were at the Lido Bar having a drink!!!Our Cabin was already cleaned and ready for us!!! We got our luggage around 3 PM which is pretty good I suppose. K category #6127 was just perfect for us we were just in to sleep and.......you know! Everything is tiny a small in a inside stateroom but cosy as well! Quiet cabin, near the aft elevators, closet was big enough for all our clothes, Bathroom small but efficient you can brush your teeth while sitting on the throne...LOL. Shower was big enough with a small closeline to dry your bathing suits. Flat screen LCD TV with CNN and ESPN even at sea!!! Not quite big enough to enjoy in room meal service but like I said we were hardly ever in there!

The days at sea were full of activities, service was outstanding beyond expected in every aspect of the ship...Whether it was at the restaurants (all of them) or the bars or the cabin More stewards etc., they would all go the extra mile to please us in every details!!! The Pinnacle restaurant (steak house) even with the extra 20$ /person, it was well worth it!!! Steak was so tender and cooked to perfection you could almost cut it with your fork! Shrimps were huge, overall food and service were outstanding so for an extra 20$ it's a "No Brainer". Canaletto restaurant(italian)was excellent considering there's no extra charge for that one... The Tamarin restaurant(Asian)was also excellent...No wait, DAM NEAR PERFECT!!! There's a 15$/person extra charge for dinner but it's also well worth it!!! Food was plentiful and excellent and the service was by far the best on the ship, even if the service was excellent everywhere, the Tamarin service was second to none!!! The main dining room was on the loud side which is to be expected but none of less food was great so as the service. We were on "open dinning" so we never had the same steward but they were all superb!!! Lido restaurant well it's easy, if you can't find something to suit your taste and mood there you have a serious personal problem...Everything is done to order and to your taste and specifications!!! It was just great, we had breakfast and lunch at the Lido restaurant everyday and the choice and freshness was way above par!

The only draw side was the line-up to order was long by moment at the place was crowded and loud since it's right in between the seaview pool and the lido pool...Nightly shows were very good, way better then those previously seen in "all inclusive" resort! Internet Cafe, Casino (with electronic Texas Hold'em table), Silk Den, Ocean Bar, GreenHouse Spa, Gym, Northern Lights Disco Bar and the Piano Bar with Jimmy the piano man (this guy was out of this world) are a few other place that we've experienced that were most enjoyable as well. The crowd was mainly between 45 to 65 years old but even if we are younger 35-40 we enjoyed it a lot...If you are a hardcore party animal or if you have kids under 18 I would not recommend this ship since the kids may get bored quickly so has the party animals but anybody else should enjoy a nice relaxing cruise. Drinks are a little on the pricey side 6.50$/each average and the bottles of wine at 60$ were the less expensive ones. Sodas were 2$ /each. Disembarkation was also very fast (30 min) we took the late option 9:30 to 10 AM. Eurodam highly recommended and we will cruise again on Holland America Line in the future!!! Less

Cabin review: Eurodam Large or Standard Interior Stateroom Main 6127

Quiet cabin, near the aft elevators, closet was big enough for all our clothes, Bathroom small but efficient you can brush your teeth while sitting on the throne...LOL.

Port and Shore Excursions


Half Moon Cay, Bahamas(had to pick Ft.Lauderdale HMC was not listed) was paradise on earth...Best Beach I ever been to!!! We just did a beach day with a little bit of snorkeling which was pretty good considering it was near the beach on the left side by the waterpark. Clamshell for 14$...Don't pay for it and just grab one!!! We did pay for ours and nobody ever asked us for our ticket!

First, Sanjuan was pouring rain which you have no control over it...We rented a car and did our own thing...Went to visit El Yunque Rainforest it was very interesting, easy hiking, Nice fall which you can swim in it but the water was quite cold, got rain after all it's the rainforest!!! Visitor center was quite informative also...We had a good Snack at Yuquiyu Delights snackbar for local food right within the rainforest!!! After we went to Luquillo Beach where the sun was out at the end of the day. Luquillo is a very local Beach where even locals don't speak much english but it was nice to get away from the crowd...Check out the Kiosk near the beach...Back to San Juan, dropped the car, went for dinner at the Parrot Club, very good restaurant, a little shopping in town and back on the ship for all aboard 10:30 PM.

If you're into shopping for jewelry and watches, St.Thomas is definitely the place to go!!! Shopping is outstanding in St.Thomas...We also went to Coral World for a visit of the aquarium and we did some Snuba which we booked on our own it was not offered thru the cruiseline...www.visnuba.com Snuba was just awesome!!! My wife loved it so much that she wants to take her Scuba Diver course now. Plenty of Colorful Fish, Turtles etc... Snuba Highly recommended! We were docked in Crown Bay and there was wild Iguanas everywhere on the rocks around the dock area!!! That was very special, you could be only a few feet away from them! St.Thomas was so nice that we are considering going for a week next time, 1 day was definitely too short!
