Wonderful cruise on the Eurodam

Sail Date: November 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Drove over to Fort Lauderdale from the west coast of FL. Parked the car at Park-n-Go after reserving our dates online. Had an easy check-in and we were shuttled over to the cruise port in less than 5 min. Had an extremely easy check-in process and were on the ship in less than 10 min. We were able to go right to our room and our suitcases were there waiting for us in about 30 minutes.

The food, well what can I say, was top notch! Everything was wonderful. We ate at the dining room 1 night because our dinner time was at 8pm. Too late for us. The rest of the time we ate at the Lido buffet which never disappointed us. Food was excellent, from breakfast all the way to dinner and let's not forget the desserts, they were wonderful too. Especially the Dessert Extravaganza on Thursday night. The crew does a wonderful job at presentation and taste. The crew onboard were always smiling and helpful. They are the most pleasant people, and I must say, management has everything rolling More along smoothly.

Departing from the ship was a little hectic trying to get into an elevator for expedited departure. Make sure you leave your room early to get down to floor 1 for this, otherwise the elevators will be full everytime they stop on your floor. Once we made it to the 1st floor to disembark, we were led to the exit and were off the ship and outside in about 5 min. Customs were easy and only spent about 10 seconds at the desk and went outside, where our shuttle was waiting for us and got to our car within 5 minutes and were out of the parking lot quickly thereafter. For $51 to park your car, you can't go wrong. We even got to see wild monkeys when we entered the Park-n-Go lot!
Everything was great and I would highly recommend Holland America. Less

Cabin review: VA8143 Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Our cabin was great. All we had to do was go up one floor for the dining and to the pool. There was plenty of room for storage, including 3 suitcases.

Port and Shore Excursions

The beach here was awesome and right there at the port.

We didn't book any shore excursions onboard. When we got off, there were many people trying to take you on tours. We got offers mostly of $20 per person, but then further down there was one guy, Orlando, who only was charging $10 per person for an hour and a half tour. He was very good and we stopped at many places along the way for pictures and a little history. Kept us entertained also.

We took a taxi to downtown. If you're not shopping for jewelry, I found St Thomas to be useless. There are so many sales people on the sidewalks trying to get you to go to certain stores. Wish we had gone to the beach here as I heard it was pretty awesome.
