Voyage: Eurodam – Baltic Cruise July 27-Aug 8 Our fantastic three and a half week vacation is quickly becoming a distant memory. After unpacking, washing clothes, tending to a neglected house, kid sport tryouts and back to school chaos, it’s now time to think about writing this review.
Our “bias” comes with this background: I, along with my wife and two boys (ages 11 and 14) have cruised Holland America a number of times. Two summers ago we were on the Nieuw Amsterdam in the Mediterranean. Last summer, we did not plan to cruise but found an incredible deal on the Veendam in Canada/New England. We should also note, it has been some time since we cruised with Princess. We sailed on Carnival a little more than a year ago
The basis of this trip started during our time two years ago on the Nieuw Amsterdam. About half way through the cruise, my wife discovered the crepe station during breakfast in the Lido. The breakfast of choice became a Nutella crepe with some kind of fruit compote on the top. A year later, we were on the Veendam, a smaller ship, and with much disappointment, discovered there was no crepe station. So the quest became, “where could we go on a ship large enough to have the crepes again.”
