Ship Facts: Eurodam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Eurodam Deck Plans
Rowing Across the Big Pond
Having never sailed across the Atlantic, this was a big adventure for my husband and me.

Embarkation was swift, painless and uncomplicated. Kudos to Ft. Lauderdale port officials.

With more than 2,000 passengers, this ship was by far the largest (and newest)ship we have ever sailed on. We were pleased to discover that the size was not overwhelming and the deck layout was pretty basic - food in the aft and entertainment forward. Shops in between with more food and pools on Lido.

After a pit stop in Bermuda, we sailed across the ocean for four days. The weather was a bit nasty, but who cares when you're pampered with plenty of entertainment, sumptious food and a gracious wait staff.

Ian was our travel lecturer and expert. He is the best we have ever seen. His lectures were informative with plenty of local color, advice and good humor. He was available at his desk, sometimes twice a day.

Another highlight was, of course, gourmet food. With a variety of many eating venues, no one should have any complaints. It was all "delish"!

A big cheer for the Screening Room where new movies were available four times a day (with popcorn).

We book several excursions. My favorite was the National Tile Museum in Seville, Portugal. Don't miss it!

I'm not going to write about the ports, other than to say we went ashore to all ports except Portimao, Portugal. It was a tender port and we were tired from traipsing all over Lisbon the previous day and a half.

Our complaints were few and were noted on our comment card at the end of the cruise. Holland America is good about reading and responding to those comments.

Would we cross the Big Pond again? Of course!!!
