This was our first back-to-back. We had been to the eastern ports but not the western ones. We booked 5 culinary tours in advance and got to the first 3. Unfortunately we couldn't make port in Amber Cove or San Juan due to weather and the St. Martin tour was cancelled due to lack of participation, so we had more sea days than anticipated. The Eurodam was as good as we've come to expect. Cabin stewards were excellent, food great, we love the Tamarind (wish it were on every dam ship). Enjoyed the ATK shows, used the spa services, altho very pricey. Everything was immaculate. One surprise was the Canneletto menu, which is much more interesting than we remembered. The only problem we had was on the turn-around day. We were not informed about the procedure of presenting ourselves with our passports and we had to wait at least 30 minutes for customs. Not a HAL problem but very irritating. We also didn't know we didn't have to go to the muster. A HAL problem. Guest Services apologized.

Very relaxing
