Great time on a fantastic ship!

Sail Date: January 2011
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

We sailed on HAL's Eurodam on Jan. 2, 2011 from Fort Lauderdale. This was our third cruise on HAL and first on the Eurodam. Embarkation was lightening fast. We arrived at the port about 12:30 pm and we seating in the dining room for lunch before 1:00!

Dining: We had chosen the anytime dining option and never had to wait for a table. We had dinner in the main dining room four nights, in the Pinnacle Grill one night and in the Tamarind one night. We enjoyed each meal, with wonderful service and interesting tablemates, but our favorite was the Tamarind. Incredible food and service.

We found the Lido to be a great option for lunch and breakfast, although sometimes we had to hunt a couple minutes to find a table. The friendly Lido staff always had a big smile and greeting for us!

But, we had bad luck with room service. Although they always arrived earlier than promised, in five tries (two mornings for breakfast and three afternoons for snacks), our order was More incorrect four times. Hot breakfast items were never close to hot either, except the coffee. Cabin: Our deck 10 veranda stateroom was better than expected. We were not sure whether we would like that location, high and forward, but found it to be really convenient. Our cabin stewards were perfect examples of HAL's best asset: it's friendly and helpful crew. Our room was always spotless and they quickly got us the extra blanket, ice and such. Less

We used Stingray Sailing to play with the stingrays and snorkel a great reef. Great time! Grand Cayman is on our list for a return visit soon.


We hired Mark Morris of Mark's Tours. Wonderful choice and highly recommended. He customized his tour for what we wanted to do, showing us Jamaica's culture, people and more!
