Eurodam Cruise Review by hollyaknight

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2019
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Superior Verandah Suite

I chose Holland America because the ship size was not so big that I would be lost. My family and I prefer a quieter experience, crowds, crazy dancing and rocking bars not really our thing. Embarkation was a breeze, went on the ship at 2pm, walked right on. Ship, a little dated, 70's like décor mirrors, velvet and geometric shapes but still in decent shape. Our cabin steward was wonderful. Dining in the main dining room eeeh…. it was fine. Dining in specialty restaurants Pinnacle Grill and Tamarind... fantastic! Dining in Lido crazy crowded and grabby people. Dive in burger bar and pizza always a wait of 35 to 40 min, food ok. Alaska is beautiful... cruise excursions helicopter ride to glacier and dogsled in Juneau and zipline in Ketchican (booked our own private whale watch in Sitka for $135 per head - this was not on Holland America excursion menu) all were fabulous. Kids ages 12, 16, 19 actually played board games in the game room on the ship, a lot!! That was awesome.. they all go to their separate corners at home. BBKings blues band was really great and magician and comedian entertaining as well. Overall a great family vaca to Alaska on the Eurodam. If I had to do it again I would do dining room for breakfast and lunch and book specialty restaurants for most nights of the cruise to stay away from crazy Lido, although convenient crowds take relaxation factor way down.

Cabin Review

Superior Verandah Suite
Cabin SS SS6071

Cabin Signature Suite deck 6, very nice, roomy big balcony, I was traveling with 4 other family members and we could all fit on balcony. Kids had large interior room it was fine for them but I really appreciated the fresh air on the balcony.

did not get off the ship, ship was delayed so only had a few hours in port, not really sure why they stop here.
