Eurodam

September 2016 - Eurodam to Europe - Mediterranean

Poor Port Substitution

The strength of Holland America are its excellent ships, food & some of the best people (crew) that you will meet anywhere. They will always do a little more than you expect. The weaknesses are a thin entertainment schedule & a poor choice of substitution ports once the 2 days in Istanbul & the 2nd Turkish port were cancelled. It is obvious few ports will replace Istanbul but with 4 to 6 weeks prior to sailing I at least expected them to try to find another high quality destination. Instead we get a 2nd day in Athens (other than the Acropolis, a generally dirty & poorly kept city) & the addition of Albania. Given the lack of effort I suspect the ship was probably close to fully booked at the time.

With regards to the entertainment, at our favourite club, the BB King Allstars played 10 of 12 nights. They were a great band to listen to but can't you find another group in addition to them for a 12 night cruise?

brockmacconnell's Tips

Eurodam Eurodam - Food on the Lido deck for dinner is identical to that of the formal dinning room. For a quicker more casual night consider dining there occasionally. Additionally on the Lido deck dinning, if you want an extra lobster tail your plate, or a you can request it from the person immediately at serving.
