  1. We are taking a family cruise to Alaska on the Eurodam next August. We've made dinner our one mandatory meet up of the day and would all like to be seated at one table. We have late, fixed dining.We have 11 in our group, 2 of which are children, 9 year old twins). Has anyone had a large group, or is familiar with the largest table size available, on the Eurodam? We are all in Neptune suites but don't know if that makes a difference. Thanks in advance for any information you can provide!
  2. Just off Eurodam from a short (4-day) cruise down the Pacific Coast. Loved the ship and the cruise. This was my first HAL cruise in about 4 years, the last 3 were on Celebrity. I thought that. as usual, the crew did a magnificent job, but are hamper by HAL's staffing. It was hard, sometimes impossible, to get a drink in a lounge or bar without stepping up to the bar yourself. Just no one taking orders. Nonetheless, the bar staff was always friendly and pleasant, ready to help. The wine service in the MDR was terrible. With or without a drink package it took for ever to someone to take your wine order. In Tamarind and the Pinnacle Grill, however it was no problem at all. Outside of the specialty restaurants I felt the quality of the food had gone down since my last HAL cruise. Food quality and selection is an area I think Celebrity clearly outshines HAL. The ship seemed in good condition, a few areas needed a bit more TLC, but overall she was clean and comfortable. We were disappointed in the entertainment with the lack pf live music outside B.B. King's and the Lincoln Center Stage. Those venues were pretty much packed when anyine was playing. This indicate a desire by paying passengers to have live music. My last cruise on Celebrity wasn't much better, but there were a couple more options for live music. I can't say enough about the good service from our cabin stewards and the Neptune Lounge staff, they really helped make this a great, if short, cruise. Will sail HAL again? Probably. I did 4 HAL cruises in 5 years before switching to Celebrity because of the itinerary. The itinerary, dates and price will drive my decision for the next cruise.
  3. My wife, two friends and I are on the Eurodam. We traveled from Vancouver to Santa Barbara and San Diego. Today we are in Cabo San Lucas. We sail this evening for Mazatlan and then to Puerto Vallarta before two days at sea as we return to San Diego. I am blogging as we go. I have already posted a couple of days and will be writing about Cabo shortly. My blog has numerous photos of our ports of call as well as modest dialogue. Join us at www.travelswithcappy.com and let me know what you think.

  5. Yes, you can buy cartons of cigarettes in the duty free shops and bring them back to your cabin. And yes, the only designated smoking area on Eurodam is deck 9 aft, starboard side near the seaview pool and bar.
  6. I have read about Cabanas on the Eurodam. We are cruising out of Seattle on 5/25/19 through 6/1/19. We have booked an Oceanview cabin. Wondering if a cabana makes sense. Are they located where you could sit more comfortably and view the scenery? Also, there are 4 of us, do we need a family retreat cabana?
  7. Will be waving from our fav restaurant as you and the wonderful Eurodam goes by! Mexican Riviera is awesome! You’ll have a great time!! Mazatlan we so enjoy especially watching them dive off the cliff! Denise😊

  9. Thank you. I love to have a gin and tonic before I start with dinner. On the Eurodam last December, by the time I ordered and received my drink, the main course was being served and I had no time to order a glass of wine to go with the main course. On my next cruise, I will pick up my drink from a bar on my way to dinner.🍸🍷
  10. We were on the Eurodam in July, 2019 on a 7 day Alaska cruise with a group of ten. We had initially asked for AnyTime dining. By the time we boarded, we had decided to try to dine together. I had a Neptune Suite, so I asked our concierge to book us a table for ten for all seven nights. She booked us table 103 which we had for all seven nights. It was more than comfortable for 10, and you should be able to squeeze an 11th chair. We also booked our table for 8 PM. Late dining had a lot more tables available than early dining.
  11. I was on Eurodam Sep 21-28 and we had the old school escargot. That is if by old school you mean served in the dish with 6 spoon size bowls filled with that awesome drawn butter with garlic and parmesan. They were served on the first gala night and they were wonderful.
  12. I'm late, too. 😞 Thanks for the fleet report. (Eurodam was at my favorite MR port today. 😉)
  13. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated October 18th, 2019 We all love to hear what cruises you are booked on. I post the Bon Voyage threads 7 days before sailing so, to be included in this, you need to post your details here to allow sufficient time to be on the updated Future Cruise Listing. It’s better to post earlier than later but if it is later please post THREE weeks in advance to make sure it doesn’t get missed. We would also be interested to know if this is your first cruise, your first HAL cruise or if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread. Please use REPLY and not QUOTE when posting to this thread. Using 'Quote' makes a very long thread and difficult for others to read. While this list is a lot of fun, please don't mistake it for a Roll Call thread. You can go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic and find your cruise to sign up there too. That's where your Meet & Greet planning, tour sharing, and other activities specific to your cruise will be happening. This week’s additions and changes are in BOLD and highlighted in aqua (sea colours).

  14. sailing on Eurodam soon and thought maybe they have this now? I know the Neptune lounge has coffee but we are on 5th floor. Thanks
  15. Are you planning to reserve fixed early or late dinning, or will your group go for the "anytime you choose" feature? The fixed reservations are for the upper level, and the largest table I see is for 8. Downstairs, where you can reserve a certain table for at least 3 consecutive nights, has tables for 10. Go to halfacts.com and click on Signature Class Ships. Scroll down and you'll see Eurodam's dining room lay-out for both decks. You may have to ask for two tables, such as Tables #101 and #103 downstairs, which would more than accommodate your group. Hope you find tables which suit your preferences. Have a lovely cruise.
  16. Question for the smokers only (PLEASE). It’s been 3 years since being on a HAL ship. Do they still let you buy cartons (benson and hedges menthol) and take them back to your cabin, during the cruise ? Just got off Princess and was pleasantly surprised that they are now allowing it. Hoping HAL still does. Leaving for a b2b in two weeks, just trying to plan. Also, am I correct that the only smoking area on the Eurodam is at the aft sea view bar? Thanks, Happy Sailing Everybody
  17. I was on the 4 day segment of this cruise (Vancouver to San Diego). The first two days at sea were quite rough. The outside decks were closed to passengers. I heard mention of gale force winds. The first night it was hard to sleep due to the creaking, groaning, and shuddering of the ship. At times, we were all walking like, well..., drunken sailors. I had a great time, though, and enjoyed the Eurodam. Thanks to the captain and crew for a fine job. Bill
  18. Of all HAL ships I’ve been on (8), the Eurodam is my least favorite. Not sure why, but just found it ‘lacking’ when compared to the other 7. Love HAL.
  19. Thanks for sharing your experiences. Sorry to hear that everything didn’t go as you would like. @julia I haven’t been on the Eurodam but I have found on the first night if you make it clear to your wine steward that you will be drinking wine every night, they take very good care of us. Mind you, we order wine packages and not individual glasses. I don’t know if that makes the difference or not.
  20. If you are looking at an 11:30 AM non-stop flight home I would book it. I would also strongly suggest that you plan on carrying off your own luggage at 7:30 / 8 am. I am not sure what type of ground transportation you plan (taxi, uber, cruise line airport transfer, private shuttle service, etc) , but you will be in line with not only Ruby passengers, but Eurodam passengers as well. Better to get to SeaTac early (which is crazy busy in the summer), rather than stressing out that you are going to miss your flight due to long TSA lines.
  21. Dam. We'll be on the Eurodam in two weeks, and I'm sad to hear about the wine service in the MDR. That will NOT sit well with me.
  22. saw a cruise I am thinking of taking because of the itinerary how does the Eurodam compare to the other hal ships thanks carol
  23. Though nowadays many people avoid checking bags, and when they do no one ever seems to check the numbers on the bag tag to the receipts, but I believe my experience yesterday proved how important those receipts can be. We were scheduled from PHL to Vancouver with a planned layover in Toronto via Air Canada. After checking in, checking two bags, we settled at the gate for the planned 9:30am departure. At 9am, phones all over lit up with the cancellation of the first flight. I'll spare the details of my calls to Air Canada first for alternatives (bleak) then to Holland America who booked my air (promised to somehow get us to Vancouver...said to call back after A.C. rebooked us if their alternative was no good). Bottom line, Air Canada found us a United alternative and rebooked us...only we had a short window of less than an hour to get out checked luggage shuttled. Having a description of the bags AND the tag number have them the best shot to find it and transfer it. We boarded the United flight headed to a transfer in Chicago and just prayed the bags made it. They were all there in the carousel in Vancouver, so we'll board Eurodam today with all our stuff. Moral of the story...don't lose your luggage receipts. They could prove to be very important.
  24. It has been a few years since we have cruised on Holland America, but we have cruised more recently on Celebrity. We have a HAL Panama Canal cruise coming up early next year. Today, I received an email from a visa service that had my HAL booking number and name....so they may be legit and have gotten the information from HAL. I am skeptical about a "click here" link in an email from a company I've never done business with. Is this something that HAL now sends out, or, more accurately I guess...Is it routine for HAL to sell our information to a 3rd party company, particularly this one? Kind of hits me as an identity theft scam since I'm sure they will want lots of info.
