This was the third time on HAL and first aboard the Eurodam. I was very disappointed in the quality of food in the main dining room, the service provided for the open seating was lacking. Quality of breakfast and lunch at lido rest. was down right awful. I honestly have had better quality food from banquet and stouffers. Suite was dusty and dingy. The ship appeared to be 20 years old, not 2. Carpet on the llth floor outside of the Tamirind restaurant was absolutly disgustingly dirty. The... (read more)

I loved Holland America Line, MS Eurodam ship, the crew, the food, the entertainment, and everything else!!! The room was lovely and we had a gorgeous balcony where we spent many mornings watching the ship dock at our various island stops. They treated us like royals and were always smiling and entertaining us. They were delightful! We enjoyed the shows and casino just about every night. The food was phenominal especially if you like prime rib, lobster and as much shrimp as you could... (read more)

Holland America Line, MS Eurodam. Had been worried because of earlier reviews. Onboard by 11:30. Directed to beautiful Soup, Salad, Entree, Dessert luncheon served in Rembrandt DiningRoom.

Friendly crew and spotless ship. Loved our week! Don't miss the Power Snorkel on Grand Turk... (read more)

The MS Eurodam is a remarkable ship, but it requires improvements. I had a good time but far from an excellent time. The last two hours, one had to wait in order to vacate the ship. We were greatly disturbed by staff members, who had to clean the cabin, while we had to wait. An undignified exit. (read more)

Overall good first experience. I think I would like it better if I went with a group that didn't think of meal time as a feeding frenzy however. I will definitely opt for private dining next time. Congtats on a beautiful ship!! (read more)

The photographers on the MS Eurodam suggested groups to stand and pose on stairway. When asked if there are other locations on ship that would be suitable, they could not offer any suggestions.
I thought the color scheme of the ship was drab. The walls have pale green wall paper, the carpet is utility brown/gray. The 2-seater couch in the cabin is olive green. It did not give me the impression of "WOW, this is a NEW ship!"
When a party of two was brought to a table (at the Open Dining... (read more)

I did not think the ship was cosy, show lounge and shopping centre were horrible, long waiting lines everywhere. Is this size the standard for the future? Goodbye to Statendam, Zaandam, Rotterdam and all those fine ships.
I felt the prelude cruise did not give value for money: only two shows, no information from the captain, too much attention for the vips on board. (read more)

I did experience some bad points with Holland America Line, MS Eurodam which are as follows:
Ratio staff passenger seemed rather low
Staterooms much smaller than usual older HAL ships
TV 50% in size reduced
TV can not turn - must watch TV from bed!
Cabin Steward no longer listed on phone now 'guest relations' which took longer to address my queries/needs
Long queues in front of speciality restaurants staff appeared to be unable cope
Thought the Internet cafe was tiny and same size as their... (read more)
