Eurodam Cruise Review by Mikrin
- Sail Date: October 2011
- Destination: Canada & New England
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
The room was clean, the linens were nice and clean as was the bathroom. We felt like it was a very nice setup, the room was quiet which I didn't expect on a ship. Our stewards were attentive and proactive.
The food was great, and yes the Italian restaurant was definitely the weakest restaurant. Tamarind was outstanding (wish it was open for more lunches), the Rembrandt room served quality food in a very nice atmosphere. We dined open seating on the 2nd level. There are several happy hours every day on the ship and if you make use of them, you can cut your drink bill substantially. We brought wine on board, but felt like we really didn't need to as two glasses of wine were about $7 during happy hour and it was actually pretty good quality wine. We did not go to the Pinnacle, we didn't feel we needed to with the quality of the food being served in the dining room. We did use the Lido sporadically, loved the bread pudding.
The entertainment was pretty good, the Adagio Strings girls were excellent as was Mike in the Crow's Nest. We did not listen to Michael in the Piano Bar. As for dancing, which I was looking forward to doing, didn't happen. The singer just wasn't very good, but her back up band "The Halcats" were great. We're not in to the organized shows much, our favorite thing to do was go to the Crow's Nest at Happy Hour and listen to Mike. The Cruise Director JT was perfect for the position. He did a great job making us feel like he did this all just for us! He cared about his employees as well as his guests.

Bar HarborThis was actually port 3, Gloucester is not on the list. Friendliest little town. They have a free bus (compliments of LL Bean) that takes you out to Acadia Park. Everyone in this town was helpful and friendly, it was our favorite stop.View All 369 Bar Harbor Cruise Port Reviews

HalifaxWe walked the town. There is a car rental place that we would have made use of had we known it was that accessible.View All 637 Halifax Cruise Port Reviews

NewportCould live without it. Public bus driver was borderline rude which didn't help an already fragmented trip.View All 182 Newport Cruise Port Reviews

Quebec CityLoved this little city! Quaint to walk and shop. Don't wear high heels, the streets are cobbled.View All 229 Quebec City Cruise Port Reviews
