Eurodam Overview

Eurodam cruise ship
Holland America Line's Eurodam

Incorporating Holland America’s signature one-of-a-kind experiences, Eurodam was designed for sophisticated cruisers who want to try something new on vacation. The ship’s Music Walk entertainment complex lets passengers immerse themselves in the soulful Memphis lounge scene at B.B. King's Blues Club or savor classical favorites at Lincoln Center Stage. For travelers with more mainstream musical tastes, musicians deliver chart-topping favorites at the Billboard Onboard piano bar.

Cruisers seeking more than just a tourist experience will enjoy Explorations Central. Here they can learn about the ship's ports of call. With BBC Earth Experiences, passengers can explore the natural world through groundbreaking concerts and films. Lifelong learners will also appreciate cooking workshops and demonstrations sponsored by America’s Test Kitchen. And while the adults enhance their technology skills at a Microsoft digital workshop or try their luck in a casino tournament, younger cruisers can engage in scavenger hunts, themed parties, and arts and crafts through Club HAL. Plus, active travelers of all ages can take part in friendly competition on the ship's outdoor sports courts.

Eurdoam entered service in 2008 and was refurbished in December 2015. The refurbishment added a number of new venues and activity options, including the Gallery Bar where cruisers can enjoy exciting new signature cocktails. The vessel also came away from the modernization with fully upgraded suites.

Itineraries and Departure Ports

Eurodam cruises range up to 27 days, voyaging throughout the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, the Mexican Riviera, the Caribbean, Hawaii, and the Panama Canal. Pacific Northwest cruises leave from Seattle and Vancouver, while voyages to tropical locations sail from either San Diego or Fort Lauderdale.

Before You Book

This ship is best for: Travelers looking for a sophisticated cruise will appreciate the amenities and entertainment options on Eurodam. From chamber music at Lincoln Center Stage to upscale dining venues such as Rudi’s Sel de Mer, Eurodam offers choices that will appeal to cruisers with refined tastes.

You should know: Holland America's Eurodam is not a party ship and doesn’t offer the variety of thrilling amenities that some larger cruise ships have. Cruisers looking for vibrant nightlife or amusement park-style rides should look into family-oriented mega-ships.

Activities on Eurodam

Culture, learning, and entertainment come together to inspire many of Eurodam's activities. The ship’s MusicWalk entertainment complex features vibrant live music venues for all tastes. At the Billboard Onboard piano bar, musicians play chart-toppers, while cruisers who prefer chamber music can enjoy classical favorites at Lincoln Center Stage, and B.B. King's Blues Club recreates the soulful Memphis music scene.

For travelers hoping to return home with a new skill, Eurodam offers cooking workshops and demos courtesy of America’s Test Kitchen and a Windows digital workshop, where cruisers can learn how to edit their vacation photos and navigate the “cloud.” Passengers may also enjoy wine tastings, comedy shows, and learning more about the regions they visit at Explorations Central.

Staterooms all include sitting areas, televisions, and two lower beds that easily convert to a queen. Eurodam also offers several classes of suites, which all include full-size whirlpool tubs, private balconies, and sofa beds to accommodate additional sleepers.

Extremely relaxing cruise by Paintinglady

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Extremely relaxing, loved the many areas of the ship we were able to sit and read, play cards, and enjoy the nice variety of piped in music. The pools were really nice and there was no fight to get a chair. They have no qualms with opening up unoccupied by saved by chair hogs recliners! We didn’t discover the Crow’s Nest on deck 11 until the last two days. We thought it was private for only certain guests in Club Orange ( apparently you pay to join and gets perks like priority seating in the dining room) or suite guests.

If you like a cocktail before dinner, take advantage of their buy one get a second one for a dollar in the Ocean bar or Crow's Nest.

Mar 26, 2013

Book all that you can in advance through HAL's website, such as wine packages, spa packages, massage, etc... it avoids having to rush around when you arrive and you can enjoy just exploring the ship. Whatever happens, relax and enjoy it! You aren't working!

The Silk Den was always a quiet bar with a great alternative to the Crowsnest.
