Disappointing Experience

Sail Date: December 06, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The Eurodam was a disappointment. HAL added cabins and more people but the overall feel was more crowded than other HAL ships we have been on. The cabana's on the observation and Lido decks make the ship feel crowded and cramped and disrupt any flow that those decks have on the Westerdam and Oosterdam. Overall the ship is technically sound but not as pleaseant to crusie on during sea days.

Pros: Great bar waitress in Angie-she single handedly salvaged our service experience

Cons: Overall indifference of the crew including management and officers

Recommends Eurodam? No.

Grand Turk Island
Other than margaritaville not much to do-I think this is HALs fault as they offer very little in the way of good excurssions here. Several passengers set up their own fishing trips and made their own arrangements. The Flowrider at Margaritaville is fun and reasonably priced for the experience.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Best to see Old San Juan on your own. Easy walk and plenty to see. We did the city tour and distillery tour at Bacardi as we had done this once before. Would not reccomend it-they have turned the tour into a big advertisement and the city tour is very limited.
Don't Miss: El Moro
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Not much stands out-take the St John Island snorkel
