Eurodam is a good ship
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
On the third day, Gloucester was a tender port and we got there on a Sunday. No rental car places were open. Public transportation was on a limited schedule and it was cold anc dreary. This port lacks interest. We were able to meet friends from Connecticut and go to Salem for the day. Salem is a bit more interesting.
On the sixth day of the cruise, we were supposed to be in Sydney. Because of a huge storm of 70 knot winds and 30-40 foot swells, Captain Darin Bowland took the ship to the leeward side of Pronce Edward Island and waited out the storm for an extra day at sea. It was a lost day because we really couldn't do anything on board with the way the boat was moving. Eurodam is a huge ship, but it still was riding high and low for about 36 hours.
On the 9th day of the cruise, La Baie, Saguenay was our port. THe nearby National Park had hiking, park walks and kayaking for excursions from HAL. All of the those were great trips. We would strongly recommend the hike, but only for people who are in excellent physical condition. It is 10% grade over 1.5 KM and a number of cruisers were not ready for that exertion. Less
Cabin review: VH6161 Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
Aft cabin worked great for the rough weather. This cabin did not have the usual tub and shower combination of the Veranda outside cabins, only the shower. No problem for us. It was quiet and at the end of the hall with very little foot traffic.Read All Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom (VH) Reviews >>
