We just got back from 7 great days on the Holland America Eurodam.

The ship met our expectations. We had wanted an adult cruise with good food and not so big of a ship. We were not looking for super entertainment and we did not get it. Although the comedian was funny and we enjoyed him. The ship was clean and the staff was very friendly. Our stateroom attendant was so on top of everything. He took great care of us. We booked 3 rooms in a row so we could spend private time on the verandas together. We had the participation's opened and every morning we had breakfast together and just laughed and read books and enjoyed the sun. We saw whales and lots of marine life from our veranda. The furniture was so comfortable and the deck was cleaned all the time.

The food was very good but the Pinnacle was great!!! The service in the Pinnacle was outstanding and the head waiter was a hoot. The steaks were melt in your mouth. About the only thing we didn't care for was the pizza. Well I guess we are just a little picky.

The ports were OK. We have been to all but the private island several time and we did not take this cruise interested in the ports but we were more concerned with the weather. We hit great weather and good seas. We barely got off the boat. We enjoyed the Catamaran trip to St. Johns. The crew and the boat were very nice. The water is great there and so was the snorkeling. But the private island was the best. We loved the String Ray adventure and the BBQ was the best. The only thing is you need more time on the island.

I loved this trip and would recommend it for the reasons I have entered. Enjoy yourself life is short.

Cabin review:

v5141
great balcony with great furniture. We could not hear a thing outside of our cabin except one night a drunk was being rude and yelling outside our doors. We loved our bed. The sheets were so soft. I needed a down pillow and our steward got for my. We also needed help with a blouse I spilled wine on and our steward with the help of the laundry people out it completely out.

Port and Shore Excursions

Port
The beach was great and the sand was like powder. But there is nothing there. The excursions are a waste of money.

We have been to St. Thomas many times. It has lots and lots of shopping and if that is what you want there is where you will get it. The shopkeepers are very nice and will sell you anything. The waters and the different excursions are good here there are lots to see. We spent our time going on a Catamaran to St. John. A beautiful island with great snorkeling, a must do in our eyes.
