Great cruise! by davidhd

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Eurodam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Overall this was a very good cruise. The destinations and excursions were very scenic and fun, and different, because Alaska is a unique place. The ship experience was great in some ways, average in others, but overall very good, and the service from embarkation, on the ship, to disembarkation, was excellent.

Enjoyable, Relaxing, Exciting, Breathtaking Scenery! by ypssatx

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Eurodam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Overall, we enjoyed our cruise. The highlight of the trip was the breathtaking views at each port and the perfect weather we experienced. The ship was clean and well maintained. The service was adequate, except for the cabin stewards, who were exceptional! The food was so-so. Our biggest disappointment was the cabin space for 4 adults : ( We enjoyed the entertainment, the BB King group, especially, the lead female singer. We were a group of nine family members and we thoroughly enjoyed our time together on this cruise. The photographers on board took some great pictures. However, selling each digital print for $19.99 is a bit expensive. Two hundred dollars for 10 pictures, seriously...........

Advice anyone? Yes we figured... by skeates

Sail date: /
Ship: Eurodam

Advice anyone? Yes we figured out that excursions were pricey (if you dont already know). But the excursions in every port were magnificent. 4 for 4. Even Victoria which we had heard so much negative about because of the docking time. Pod of orca whales anyone?!?!?! Glacier bay was unbelieveable.

Fantastic Cruise by Chomps

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Eurodam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Overall the experience aboard the Eurodam was fantastic. Staff was welcoming, friendly, and attentive. The only negative experience was at Pinnacle Grill, which was due to unpleasant wait staff that had trouble accommodating groups larger than 2. This included half of the table not receiving menus, staff walking off in the middle of orders, and one of the waiters becoming visibly annoyed when he asked for our drink orders and we asked for a drink menu because none were provided.

Great Cruise to SE Alaska by nwgal

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Eurodam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

I highly recommend an Alaska cruise if you love beautiful scenery. Holland America's clientele may lean toward the older crowd, but that was fine with us. I appreciated the ship's elegance and the focus on HAL's history of cruise line service. The pictures from their archives that line the walls of the hallways are fun and interesting. And although we were not the highest spending passengers on board, we still received great service and attention.

One of our best cruises... by garnerp1

Sail date: /
Ship: Eurodam

One of our best cruises yet! Totally different vibe than Carnival, which was a good thing. Since we went to Alaska our views from our balcony and ship itself did not disappoint. It was easy to get around and the daily activities were nice. Staff were friendly and helpful as always and the food was good. Couldn’t ask for a better first time on Holland America.

The cruise was absolutely great. I would not get off the boat at Juneau only to go to the Red Dog Saloon and get back on the boat .

First time Alaskan Cruise by RogerCalifornia

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Eurodam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Our first cruise and what a wonderful experience. We initially had concerns about seasickness, but no problem. There were plenty of things to do that kept us occupied. Outstanding food choices and service.

This was one of my... by alexisjulian

Sail date: /
Ship: Eurodam

This was one of my favorite cruises to date - my fiancé says this was his favorite cruise and cruise line yet! We loved the laid back vibe of the itinerary (Alaska), the chic sophistication of the ship decor, and the absolutely amazing food. What a treat! We will definitely sail with HAL again.

Wonderful Alaska Cruise! by kaystepp

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Eurodam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

This was my first cruise and I enjoyed it. I would like to take another cruise. I am sure I will take another one on Holland America. But I think I would like to try another cruise line just to compare. The ports we visited were very nice. The weather wasn't but that wasn't Holland America's fault. And although it rained on us it was never a real hard rain and it wasn't terribly cold. So I consider us lucky! Thanks Holland America for a nice vacation and a nice first cruise experience.

Great Weekend Trip by EdwardTravels

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Eurodam / Destination: U.S. - Pacific, Northwest

The One night cruises that HAL offers are great weekend getaways for local people. We took the train to Vancouver and got on the ship by 1pm. Had a great time and I highly recommend that people local to Vancouver or Seattle take advantage of these great weekend trips

Cabin beside ours overflowed their toilet and put water up and down the hallway and into our cabin. The crew provided us with a temporary cabin while ours was being cleared.

Rethinking Holland America: It Seems to be a Good Ship Run by Management Consultants and Penny-Pinching Accountants by bfshea

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Eurodam / Destination: Hawaii

We choose HAL because it's low key, we like Lincoln Center Stage, daily Catholic mass, and America's Test Kitchen. We paid extra for Neptune class, but besides having a bigger room don't know what it really gets you. Saw a lot of staff fawning over some cruisers (perhaps repeat cruisers), but then would not give others the time of day. In the end, the penny-pinching was obvious with food and entertainment, and the overall value was low: we are rethinking any future cruise with HAL.
