Better than average, but not the best

Sail Date: May 23, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Food:The food was better than some- more fresh seafood, and nice beef dishes. The  Eurodam has exact hours for restaruants to open and close (at 9PM!). The only 24 hour food is a very limited in room service. Princes has a 24 hour cafe-which I loved.

Entertainment:  The lounge  entertainment was not very good, but the crowd was 60+ so rarely was anyone up after dinner anyway.   The off broadway shows were predicatable, but good.  

Education and tours: I had been on the same Baltic-St. Petersburg cruise with Princess cruise line 9 months ago, and the commentary was much more informative on the other ship, so if you use Eurodam be sure you have your own educational material about the cities you will visit, as the ship "lectures" seem to be only a sales attempt for you to take the HAL excursions. As far as the HAL excusions they are quite expensive.  We used an independent land tour company (AllaTours)  and were very happy with the small groups (8-12) and excellent guides with headsets. We ran into a HAL group and there were  41  people per group with no head sets to hear the guide.  

Ship: The Eurodamn Atruim was smaller, basically just a staircase, whereas on the Princess, the Atrium was like a meeting place with entertainment all the time- a good hang out place.  The Eurodam does have two nice  pools- one enclosed and one open pool. 

Staff: The customer service on the Eurodam was excellent.  

Ship Quality
Lots of people had colds, and we ended up getting a cold before we left.

Ask for "house wine". Otherwise the menu only has name brands at $$.$$
