Family Trip to Alaska by VictoriaYeah

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

This was a bit on the expensive side overall. Budget and plan in advance for hidden costs (room charges, tips, etc.) The spa package was worth it to me as the only adult in my party of 10 without children. Sometimes you need a place to be quiet. Plan ahead to maximize what excursions you want to participate in. Lots of sight seeing on this, don't forget to bring a pair binoculars. I forgot mine and they would have been very handy.

Great Onboard Entertainment but be ready for shortened shore excursions by imperialpref

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

The listed itinerary times were much longer than the actual time off the ship. Either we disembarked late (Victoria) or we had to come back to the ship much quicker than what was initially advertised (Sitka and Victoria)

My husband said this is the first vacation he's been on that actually felt like a vacation. We will definately plan another AK cruise. Scenery was magnificent.

Amazing Vacation by aijaz777

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

Very simply this was one of the best vacations we ever embarked on. I can't say enough... the Ship, the crew, the food and the entertainment were all close to perfect! Alaska and Glacier bay in particular is mesmerizing. We did one major excursion... plane ride over Misty Fjords in Ketchikan and that was breathtaking. Not much to do in Juneau so plan an excursion or some activity here. All in all I highly recommend this cruise and Holland America line in particular. Loved this Cruise Vacation and will be back again soon. Seattle (although expensive) is a very easy cruise port to work with. Two Thumbs up... way up!! - AJ & Family

Our first Cruise by Purple2

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

We had an amazing time! The staff were exceptional, shows were amazing, the balcony room was perfect for us. We took a couple of excursions - very recommended! We saw whales, Bald eagles, sunbathed in Glacier Bay! We met wonderful interesting people. It is a well managed, efficient, clean beautiful Ship. We were very proud to sail on her. We booked our next cruise for twice as long because we didn’t want it to end.

Great Cruise by Hiflyer

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

We truly enjoyed this cruise. The weather was great - no rain, and all the tours were excellent. The only drawback was that Holland America used to have a midnight "chocolate extravaganza," which was always one of the mini highlights of the cruise. It was done at midnight in the buffet with all kinds of different chocolates and fruit carvings. It truly was art in the form of chocolate. Unfortunately, this has been stopped and replaced with a walk thru on one deck by waiters carrying trays of chocolate tipped marshmallows, brownies, and cookies. It was very crowded and somewhat disappointing from what we had expected and briefed our family members on. I do not know why it was discontinued as it was always very popular on the previous cruises we had taken on Holland America.

Vacation of a life time by marybussey

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Fantastic Alaskan cruise by tprand424

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

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.

Alaska was the trip of a lifetime. by Presscheck

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

One regret is that we didn't purchase any "Wild caught, fresh frozen, Alaskan King Salmon" to have shipped home on our timeline. No kidding, the bangers aboard the Eurodam were EXCELLENT and I wish I could have purchased some of those. Wonderful ship. By the time they conducted the safety drill, I already had a firm grasp of how to get around anywhere aboard. The crew was very friendly and attentive. If I get back to Ketchikan I'd like to tour the fiords by plane. We've been on a Caribbean cruise with a different cruise line since Alaska and my wife & I both agree we liked the Eurodam AND her crew better than our first and only experience with R.C.

Glaciers & Whales by genekimes

Ship: Eurodam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

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 crew! by kellyberry67

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

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!

Breathtaking, scenic Alaskan Cruise by Cruiser46124884

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

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.

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

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

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.
