Ship Facts: Eurodam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Eurodam Deck Plans
A new Holland America.....yes
my wife and I are world and cruise. fortunately representative of the idea that today's 70's are the new 50's. we have cruised for many years on most of the lines...including those regarded as upscale-- most however, have been on almost all of HA's "damn ships". thru the years we have found them to be reliable, trusted, efficient and offering very fare value for good food and reasonable entertainment. one negative has been, however, the perceived burden of of passengers needing physical assistance. not so on this Eurodam...even not counting those on spring break, the average age seemed under 50...the crowd not from the florida condo's...but representative of what seemed to be all of the US and Canada. we met some very interesting people.

details....the boarding..baggage collected,signed in and boarded with lightning speed...verandah cabin attended to with invisible efficiency...ship clean as a whistle--sails beautifully...entire staff always with genuine smiles and welcoming words...and I'm talking from sailors--wait staff--pursers--port lecturer--cruise and fitness staff--up to and including the captain. disembarkation..a snap.

dining...they've got the "anytime" to a science...any meal, any time, table for 4 or 6...window preferred, never waited more than one minute...the food, ever dining room food on ANY ship...advice.. eat ANYTHING, ANYWHERE on the ship that sounds ITALIAN...never tasted any equal in NY, San Fran or Italy....can't tell whether it's the line or the chef...but WOW. Can you give 10 stars?

Entertainment...not the very best...but certainly good enough...

Ports....hey's the caribbean...if the weather's whatever you like. All beaches great, shopping in St. Thomas is the best...and Old San Juan is a historical treasure. Tip for this port--the free hop on-hop off bus, literally across the street from the terminal.

Overall...5 stars..... to enjoy the Eurodam, one has to understand Holland America and why they have the greatest number of return cruisers---you know what you are going to get. They are not for the bejeweled or the screaming fun-lovers. There are other lines for those to rightfully enjoy. But, if you want a really good cruise, with great food and service, at a reasonable can do no better than the Eurodam. We look forward to sailing her again.
