Review summary

Alaska is a great place to visit, and this was a memorable cruise. The Eurodam is a very nice ship, with great style and comfort. Dining room service was poor, however, and the Lido Cafe was always a scene of breakfast and lunch mayhem - poor crowd control and long lines.

Food was unpredictable. Some dining room meals excellent, others average. Pinnacle Grill superb, but at an up-charge. Lido Restaurant food adequate, but routinely crowded and crowd control poor
