Vacation of a life time by marybussey

The views were breath taking, would have liked more port time in Ketchikan - it was amazing, by far my favorite and cruising Glacier Bay was magnificent- we saw eagles, brown bear, otters, seals and a hump back whale. Will definitely return.

Spectacular Alaskan Cruise by beverlykimble

This cruise is worth the cost. The service on the Eurodam was always excellent - from the poolside to the main dining room. Food was always well prepared and room was always cleaned and freshened up.

Alaskan Journey by jerr52

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Since this was our first visit of any kind to Alaska, we can honestly say that we enjoyed the overall experience of the ports. The only shipboard experience with Holland America that we really enjoyed was the cruise around Glacier Bay. Food quality and choices was disappointing. Several times we were erroneously charged by the main Dinning Rm. The last night when we arrived back on board from Victoria our cabin ventilation system had been shut down...it took multiple calls to guest services and 3 hours to get the problem rectified. To HAL's credit, they did say they would refund $250, we'll see.

Wonderful Cruise, Not so Great Ship by OldTxun

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This was my third cruise. I had previously cruised on Royal Caribbean and Carnival. I rate both of those head and shoulders above HAL, or more accurately, the Eurodam ship. The cruise and destinations were wonderful. The management of the cruise, the layout of the ship, especially with its seating bottlenecks, and the advertisement of activities, etc was all marginal to bordering on unacceptable.

Although the weather was cold and rainy, the excursions in the ports were very interesting. Best port was not a port but cruising around Glacier Bay.

Fantastic Alaskan cruise by tprand424

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

You can't go wrong with an Alaskan cruise. The Eurodam is a great choice, as it has a covered pool so you can actually go swimming when it is cooler and raining outside. The ship is in immaculate condition, and the changes from drydock were obvious (still could smell fresh carpet and paint). Each room has a large library of free ondemand movies to watch, free fruit, a bathtub in the bathroom. The entertainment on Eurodam is sparse, but what they do offer is top notch. Keep in mind that you don't want to use Holland America if you are into the party scene, the cruise ship was fairly quiet. The kids program wasn't the most organized, but the kids still enjoyed it, especially the Xbox room.

This cruise was excellent. The ship was excellent in most ways and scenery magnificent. by hamburgbob

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall we loved the trip. The ship was up to date, very clean and crew was excellent. We loved all the entertainment. Alaska in general is magnificent. Sitka was a bit less interesting. We loved the Deadliest Catch crab boat experience. Sounds a bit cheesy but was well done and interesting. We did not do it but regretted not spending the money to take the helicopter ride to the Mendenhall Glacier. However we did the whale watching and saw many whales and the glacier from the visitor center.

Fantastic crew! by kellyberry67

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

To the embarkation herd control personnel, our greeting by Myrby and Sarah in the Neptune lounge our greeting from Argo, and the entire staff in the dining area. KUDOS! The only thing that could have made our crew staff any better was to just have a longer cruise. Holland has made excellent decisions in their staffung positions! My only complaint, and I really dont want it to be a complaint as it was just the least favorite part of the trip was the main dining. The food was mediocre at best but the customer service was superb! Good job Denny as our server there! The Entertainers, WOW! professionals for sure! The casino was a great place to have a few hours of good entertainment because the staff was fantastic once again. This has been my only real cruise outside of the USN and your staff made it grand!

Loved our Vacatiion! by imrmb

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Loved our cruise! Dining selections for included price could be better. It was either one dining room or the crowded Lido deck or pizza, and hour long waits for hamburgers and hot dogs. They also closed the main dining room at lunch time ( some meeting) when it was a day at sea... lots of folks angry about that. Victoria is a beautiful city, just not enough time there. Overall, we loved everything else.

Breathtaking, scenic Alaskan Cruise by Cruiser46124884

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Everything from the room to the dining and entertaInment was superb. The staff was exceptionally friendly and most helpful with questions of where we were, and how to get where we wanted toi go. Our only complaint was that we thought we had to sign up for the shore excursions before sailing, but could have waited to board and then picked which ones we wanted to attend. we went on one, but would rather have gone elsewhere but had already paid the fee and couldn't cancel.

Alaska is a great cruise! by halk

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We have nearly 200 days on Holland America and they are our go-to cruise line at this point. You get what you pay for, HAL delivers pretty good value for the dollar. If you don't like a lot of noise, HAL is a good place to go. Younger people with young families might like sister ships on Carnival better, but at our age (60s) we really like the cruising environment they provide. All cruise lines try hard to provide great customer service on board. HAL seems to have really mastered it without being overbearing. We especially like the food variety in Lido and often at lunch go to the Asian food station. Remember, many of the staff on board are from Asia so they know how to cook Asian! Sometimes we like to be less formal and eat dinner in Lido as well. Lido is a buffet restaurant and is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and later evening "snacks" as well. I say snacks but it's really like another dinner serving.

Ship had been recently renovated we heard, we were pleased with our room. Lots of storage and the bathroom was bigger than I expected (it had a tub). Food was good, Dive-In burgers were amazing. Pizza on the back deck was also very good. We had a great time.

All went well on this Panama Canal Cruise on the Eurodam by jimanddi

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We were pleased with this cruise, as the staff on board was uniformly pleasant and efficient. The captain in particular was engaging, with the 'meet the captain' event really fun! Probably not the most stellar list of ports to call on, but there is enough there to keep things interesting. A reasonably priced cruise that I'm happy to have taken!
