Ship Facts: Eurodam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Eurodam Deck Plans
Wonderful getaway cruise
We are a couple in our fifties. This was our eighth cruise. We have cruised with NCL and Princess. We chose HAL because of the itinerary and the port. We had a non-stop flight into Ft. Lauderdale. We flew in two days early to visit our friends son who lives in Naples.

Embarkation: We were at the terminal by 12:30 and in our stateroom before 1:00. The embarkation process was fast and very efficient.

Stateroom: We have always booked inside rooms. We were not disappointed

with the Eurodam. The room had lots of closet space. More than we are used

to. We had a desk and chair, nice size flat screen tv, two outlets (we are used to only having one on other ships)refrigerator and safe. The bathroom had liquid shampoo, conditioner, and soap dispensers in the shower. Hand lotion was also provided. Bathrobes were also provided. We loved our room

steward. He was always happy to see us and kept our room so nice the whole week.

Ship: Our stateroom was in the front of the ship and it was very easy to get to the Lido and the spa which we used a lot. The ship has fresh flowers every

where on the ship. The Lido had beautiful orchids on every table. We did notice the vibrations that everyone talks about on cruise critic but we have noticed the same thing on every cruise we have been on. I loved getting onto

the elevator every day to see the new days of the week rug. Nice touch HAL!

It is very easy to lose touch of what day it is when you are on vacation.

Dining: We ate breakfast in the Lido every morning and they have a good variety to choose from. They had fresh squeezed orange juice and probably six

other varieties of juices. We never felt that the Lido was over crowded. The

food was all excellent. Ice cream and cookies are always available. They even

have cotton candy. We ate at the Grill one day for lunch. We made reservations for the Pinnacle Grill and Tamarind before the cruise. Both were

excellent. We also ate at the Italian restaurant. The formal nights are the

two days at sea so if you don't want to dress up you must eat at the lido or

get room service.

Activities: We did not go to the nightly shows. We did go to the screening room to see a couple of movies that have not been out long. The next

day they show them on the room tv. We went to the game Deal or No Deal. I went to the gym one day and the rest of the days I walked around the third floor deck. We prepaid for the spa for the week. They credited our account for the difference since it is cheaper to book it once you are on the ship. They only take 40 people. We prebooked to make sure we would be able to get a reservation.

Favorite Hangouts: We loved the exploration lounge (crows nest) They had an

internet cafe, library in which you could borrow books for the week, lots of board games and puzzles which you could enjoy in the lounge. They also had a coffee shop. They had nice loungers that faced the water and there were some

quiet places to read. The other spot we loved was the Silk Den which had

nice chairs and loungers to read in.

Ports of Call: The two beach ports were wonderful although all the water

activities were cancelled on Grand Turk because of high winds. St. Thomas we took a taxi ($11/pp each way) to Sapphire Beach to snorkel. It was a beautiful beach! San Juan we did a kayak excursion. We also snorkeled on

Half Moon and went on a jet ski. We really enjoyed the ports of call. This itinerary is a great relaxing vacation.

Disembarkation: We chose to do the early walk off (7:15-8) with your luggage. We left at 8. We had no waiting for elevators or lines. It was the smoothest disembarkation we have ever had. We were at the airport by 8:30. The taxi was
