Overall Member Rating
A new Holland America.....yes
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
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 More 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, everywhere...best 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 guys..it's the caribbean...if the weather's good...do 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 price...one can do no better than the Eurodam. We look forward to sailing her again. Less
