Holland first timer

Sail Date: March 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We just got back from our 7 days on the Eurodam, and I can say this was a beautiful ship. The attention to details were quite evident from the service to the food and entertainment. There were so many things to do on ship that a person could not do it all. The nightly entertainment was top notch and very professional. The food choices and quality were amazing. We had gourmet meals every day. Even the Lido buffet was overflowing with wonderful choices. There was no reason to be hungry on this cruise.
Our island stops were wonderful, although I was disappointed with Grand Turk. It was a busy place, and if you are not interested in the party scene at the bar or not interested in the water excursions then there is not a whole lot to do. But the water was beautiful and we enjoyed the beach for a few hours.
We enjoyed San Jaun the most. The rich history and the quaintness of the area was very appealing. We did our own walking tour of the El Morrow fort and strolled the Old San Jaun More streets and felt quite safe.
At St. Thomas we took a tour of the area with a local company that was wonderful. Our guide was a native who explained so much of the life and vegetation of the island. The view from Mountain Top was amazing.
Holland's private Island Half Moon Cay was the "icing on the cake". What a beautiful place to end the trip. I had a massage on the beach which was a great way to end our trip.
The cruise staff made sure our stay with them was coordinated from start to finish. We did not have to worry about any details regarding our bill, disembarkation, or return to the airport. What a peace of mind that was.
We will definitely go Holland again. Less

Cabin review: L Standard Interior Stateroom

We had an interior cabin on the Upper Verandah 6th floor. It was very spacious for an interior room. The closets were adequate. We had plenty of room for our things. The vanity space in the bathroom was a surprise. We had lots of room for our toiletries. We had a couch, king bed, dresser/mirror, plenty of plug in's for our use, small table and side chair and 2 bedside tables. Granted there was not a lot of walking space, but you don't stay in the room that much anyway. This location was quiet and being midship there was not a lot of motion when at sea.

Port and Shore Excursions

Not a lot to do for those of us who do not wish to snorkel or do the party scene at Margarita-ville.

We spent a few hours on the beach, enjoyed the lunch provided by the cruise staff, and I had a massage. Yum!

My only complaint was there was not enough time to do more. Some things will have to wait for another trip. El Morrow is a treasure and we enjoyed our own walking tour through this. Loved the cobblestone streets and the quaintness of the area. We went to hear Jaun Carlos do his magic on the guitar while we were in post. This was an excursion that was highly recommended and now we know why. All I can say is WOW! He is fantastic. We were pleased to find a CVS near the dock. We bought some more sunscreen and some wine to take back to the boat.

Island Tour

We got off the boat not really knowing what we were going to do. There were several guides offering tours near the dock. So we decided to go on a 2 hour tour of the island with Joe. He was great. Very knowledgeable and personable. By doing this we saved a lot of money. We felt we got our money's worth. He dropped us downtown for shopping which was enjoyable, and we taxied back to the dock for a quick lunch and some more shopping. I could have spent more time downtown shopping, but was afraid we would be late getting back to the boat.
