Eurodam Transatlantic Cruise -- April 14th to 27th, 2012

My DH and I drove to Fort Lauderdale from Ontario, Canada to board the Eurodam April 14th for its transatlantic cruise. This was our first TA cruise and our first time to Europe so needless to say we were very excited.

We had a very nice drive down to Fort Lauderdale taking two nights on the road. Sail away day April 14th was a very rainy morning. We had a precruise reservation the night before at Comfort Inn Suites on Federal Ave. We found the hotel with no problem by using our GPS and drove through torrential rain just as we came in FLL. It was a very quick and easy checkin and the room was very clean and spacious. It looked as if room and been refurbished. We had a livingroom area, flat screen tv, coffee table, queen bed which was very comfortable. Although the hotel looked like it was a bit dated, it was still a very good price and what we especially liked was the fact we could park our vehicle there at no charge for the duration of our cruise. I booked an overnight stay for our return April 30th. When we returned, the vehicle was fine. We had a nice parking spot near the building under a roofover so it had been somewhat protected from the elements.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin VE

Very quiet location except for being across from the cabin stewards' utility room. From time to time we could hear them in the early morning hours. Counter top area is a bit small and because we had a frig there was no room for shelving in this unit.

Many shelves in the closets with nice in-room safe. We enjoyed the size of the bathroom that had tub and shower.

Cabin was immaculate and the a/c thermostat worked like a charm. If we turned it up or down a degree, it actually worked. There was nice air flow all the time. Cabin seemed to be very stable as well in this location.

Balcony was nice but narrow so there was no room for a lounger. I would have liked a lounger but this really was of no consequence since we were crossing the ocean, the weather was usually on the cool side.
