Early December Cruise of the Eurodam

Sail Date: December 06, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Overall the cruise was ok but the general service on the cruise was a disappointment. The ship itself is very nice although a bit more crowded that some of the other HAL ships we have been on.

We never did get introduced to our cabin steward, and although the cabin was always cleaned and we cared for I missed the personal touch that was given on previous cruises. We were told that the cabins are taken care of by several stewards now and not a single person. More efficent I assume but less personal.

The food on this cruise seemed more standardized and the menu less varried. We did the open seating and were disapointed in the overall service. The waiters never get to know you and the flow of the meals in open dining is slow. We often had to rush the end of the meal or skip[ coffee to make the late show or entertainment.

Shops seemed to be poorly stocked and managed. Some shop staff even a bit rude and distant.

Deck space seemed to be cramped with the private cabanas that were added. The overall feel of the decks also seemed more crowed. I suppose this happens when you add an extra 200 plus people on a ship but still have about the same deck space.

Pros: Winning at the casino

Cons: Service was disappointing

Recommends Eurodam? No.

Grand Turk Island
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
HAL docks at the newer dock accross the island so you are not on the main part of the island near main shopping. You must take a taxi into town.
