Sail Date: Sep 2013
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

My wife and myself have cruised with numerous other cruise lines and this was our first with Holland American and probably the last. The Captain of the Eurodam was probably the most interactive Captain that were have ever sailed with. We were very impressed with the dining room steward, room steward, and the selection of food. That's about all the positives that I can give this cruise!

Photo Department: Picture were vastly over priced, compared to the other cruise lines. My wife usually spends a lot of money on photos, but this cruise we spent ZERO dollars. You could purchase packages with digital disk, but if anyone not in your cabin was in the picture, it could not be included in the disk.

Shore Excursions: Purchased shore excursion in Halifax called Peggy's Cove and Hop-on Hop-off bus. Loading the buses to Peggy's Cove was very unorganized! Returning to Halifax the buses were suppose to stop every 30 minutes at each site, which did not happen. Waited at one stop with 12 other cruisers for a hour and when the bus arrived it was full. Time is limited in each city and waiting for buses is not a fun visit.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin VA

Transatlantic cruise is not a cruise that's good for a balcony. Opening a balcony door was usually met with 40 to 50 mph winds. The room was comparable to every other cruise line, nothing more special, even those Holland American is suppose to be a more upper end cruise line. Noise would be what you expect in a Motel / Hotel.
