Sail Date: Mar 2020
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

We were on the Eurodam from San Diego - 3/1 - 18/20 to Hawaii. This was during the Grand Princess from Hawaii to San Francisco, that docked finally in Oakland. We were all concerned about corona virus positive crew or passenger(s) being on board our ship. The Captain gave us daily updates, changes in hand sanitizer use, cleaning, food being served only in buffet, etc. and lack corona cases. Passengers were generally good about hand sanitizer use, but not about covering up when coughing, and no social distancing was recommended or followed. No special procedures (other than filling out the standard CDC form) were followed at ports, or embarcing/disembarcing/customs (no temperatures taken, medical interviews or recommendations of the use of masks or gloves). On the last night of the cruise, a note was slipped under our door advising the CDC had notified HAL Medical Officer that a passenger on the previous Eurodam cruise had tested positive for COVID-19.

We have not had any COVID-19 symptoms. We live in Northern California, and were under shelter in place on 3/18/20. We'd love to hear other passengers experiences upon return from the cruise.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin was good. The overhead vent was continuously blowing on our heads, so we taped up cardboard to deflect the flow, and that helped considerably. Regular pillows were too thick, so CC, our cabin stewart, got us thinner/softer pillows which were great. Room view was 75% blocked by tender outside window.

Port Reviews

San Diego

Easy to airport

Kona (Kailua Bay)

Met a friend that lives in Kona. Hate tenders, and with corona virus scare, very close quarters.


Took city bus to Waikee, and then next day to Pearl Harbor. Very moving. City bus ride was long and rough ride.


Walked to shopping center and took bus to Kapui and Waielea. With corona scare, not much activity
