Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Eurodam

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our first cruise so expectations were high. First and foremost all crew members were welcoming, kind, professional and very helpful. The stateroom had a veranda which was perfect, however, the bathroom shower curtain had some mold on it and should have been replaced. Housekeeping cleaned the room two times daily and did a good job. The Lido deck was crowded and often times it was a ...

It was our 5th cruise on Holland. We had been sailing Royal since pandemic, but got a casino offer from Holland. We've always enjoyed Holland and this gave us a chance to get our foot in the door. We booked Club Orange and were not disappointed. Booked Have It All, probably not do in future, we get drinks in casino. We were worried after posts said drinks were only for 1 person, but they were ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

12 years ago we started our first cruise with this line (to Norway) and we loved it , after few cruises with other lines we decided to go back to Holland America , because of our first good experience with them. This time we were unpleasantly surprised that for 12 years the standards have dropped significantly , instead of improving. On the first minute of the cruise we were very disappointed to ...

We had a great time on our Nine night cruise On board Rotterdam Embarkation was smooth We got to Port Everglades at 12:20 And we did request wheelchair assistance prior to embarkation, which was very great and We went through the check in process and boarding. The ship was a breeze. The ports were amazing. We did have two days and we did see Aruba Bonnie grand Turk and half Moon cay But the food ...

Ship is beautiful,the service was outstanding! The food was excellent in all areas of the ship!! Smoking in the casino was disgusting it reaked into the shops! Music was not appropriate for holland america crowd! Bb king and rolling stones lounge was so loud that it was impossible to have a conversation with anyone! When at sea there was terrible itinerary. Coloring for adults was the big deal ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

My background: 47, Family of 4, cruised on NCL, RCL, and MSC embarkation and disembarkation This was the smoothest part of the trip. Literally, it was the easiest I have ever seen on any cruise line. Everything is very orderly! service good, nothing to write home about, very typical except in the dinning room where none of the staff seemed to know where tables were located and ...

Nice ship, very good service. So-so entertainment.

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

Very nice ship, with lots of space per passenger, and quiet places to sit with views of the water. Very good service in cabin and restaurants. Disappointing entertainment; Lincoln Center no longer offered, and main stage entertainment was mediocre. Boarding process was uncomfortable, due to 2 ships at pier in San Diego, forcing us to wait 1.5-2.5 hours in the cold, rainy weather until we ...

Another flawless dash down to Mexico and back home, and now some fresh feedback for the Bridge, as well as words for future guests. First, the staff of course. Predictably, guests are treated like gold; food is varied and superior to anything our party generally enjoys while home-bound; services from pingpong scholarship to spa, from massage to informing linedance tendencies... All of it, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This was our first cruise! Our first happy surprise is that we were upgraded from an inside cabin to a verandah. We were absolutely thrilled! We spent quite a bit of time on our covered verandah enjoying the incredible views. We are in our mid-40's and were definitely on the younger end of our cruise's population, but we didn't mind. We definitely preferred that to a bunch of partying spring ...

Overall a very mediocre cruise - nothing special Cruised with Holland America 10 years ago and it's not as good then. The points: 1) We were also charged for Crew Appreciation even though our Have It All package booked through IGLU stated this was included. It was only removed after we queried this with Guest Relations, although we did tip the cabin staff personally. 2) During the cruise, ...
