Great Eurodam Cruise
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We loved the meals and their quality especially the Rembrandt Dining Room (main dining). We chose the 5:30 seating and that worked well for us. The choices were the level of any 4 star restaurant in my opinion. We had our own formal night in the Pinnacle Grill the night they turned it into Le Cirque. This is a beautiful restaurant!
We went to the spa/gym for a drawing for free treatments and it was there that we learned of the Thermal Spa for a cost of $199 per couple. This was open to only 40 couples per cruise and consisted of heated ceramic lounges with tranquil music and running water(so relaxing!)steam room,dry sauna, and the hydrotherapy pool. We really enjoyed this. The casino was nice and it took some of our money! We had fun while losing though!
We stayed on the ship at Half Moon Cay, simply went shopping in Jamaica (didn't like the multiple badgering of taxi drivers)and finally took a small excursion in Grand Cayman. Just a simple open air trolley ride but really enjoyed the trip. What beautiful homes on Grand Cayman and no taxes there! The time at sea was smooth until the last day until we got closer to Florida but it still was not objectionable. I asked my doctor for a patch prescription in case we needed it for seasickness but never needed it!
The only drawback was the size of their pools and decks. Always very busy except for port days. Difficult to find a lounge chair. Disembarkment was swift with us having priority and handling our own luggage. Our flight home was at 11:00 and we arrived at the airport in plenty of time.
I did my research before making our choice for Holland America, finding that the consensus was better food, nicer beds and bedding and slightly larger cabins. This all seemed to be true. We sailed on RCI 20 years ago so I cannot remember much and I did feel envious as the Allure of the Seas pulled out of port ahead of us (what a monster!) but after reading some of their reviews (so many people said it seemed like Black Friday at Wal-Mart)I am happy that I chose a smaller ship with care to detail and service.

Cabin review: VB6014 Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
Electrical outlets a problem. My hair appliances would not plug into the bathroom outlets, therefore I had to use the ones at the desk by the TV. That mirror was smokey glass and I could not see well. The closets were ample and there was plenty of space under the bed for our suitcases. I asked for more hangers and Farley cheerfully brought me plenty! Our cabin was very quiet.Read All Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom (VB) Reviews >>
