Cabin / Stateroom

Very comfortable and excellent amount of room for 2 people. Due to bad weather we weren't able to enjoy the balcony like we usually do. Shower curtain was ragged and needed to be replaced.

Ship tip

Take your own library books because there is not a library onboard Eurodam.

Spent 2 nights in port here due to bad weather closing the port. High winds and extreme surf made going to the beach not an option. Pearl Harbor tour was affected by high winds as well. Made the best of everything and did some shopping.
