  2. A full house in Juneau with five cruise ships on Monday. Eurodam will be at the AS dock from 1300-2300 and Nieuw Amsterdam at the CT dock from 1300-2200. Also in port are Seabourn Sojourn tendering from 0700-2300, Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2215, and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200. The first half of the week has nice weather forecast (the end of the week is looking rainy). Monday is supposed to be partly cloudy with a high of 78F/26C and a low of 58F/14C. Sunrise is at 4:05 am and sunset at 10:00 pm. The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Oosterdam on Tuesday.
  3. We are starting to plan a return trip to Alaska. Our first one was on the Eurodam and we absolutely loved it. Just saw Oosterdam has a slightly different itinerary and a tad more expensive. So my question is has anyone tried both and which did you prefer and why? We just look forward to relaxing and try the different dining options.
  4. https://www.cruiselawnews.com/2019/06/articles/cruelty-murder-of-animals/hals-eurodam-ignores-calls-to-reduce-speed-while-approaching-whales/ Article with video of eurodam apparently comming very close to a pod of feeding whales, being warned of it in advance and not slowing or steering away. Anyone currently on her that can comment?
  5. We are on the Eurodam in March of 2019, 28 days RT San Diego Hawaii/Tahiti. We have 15 sea days and have been thinking about the Retreat on the Eurodam. Have any of you booked one of the Cabanas? If so do you have a recommendation as to where to like to be? We were able to book the retreat on the K'dam a year ago on sea days. My DH and I loved the whole experience. I know the retreat is not for everyone but would appreciate any comments from those of you who have experienced the retreat on the Eurodam.
  6. A busy start for the month of July with five ships in port. Eurodam will be at the AS dock from 1300-2300 and Nieuw Amsterdam will be at the CT dock from 1300-2200. Also in port are Viking Orion tendering from 0800-1630, Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2215, and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200. The nice weather continues and the prediction is that it will last through the week. The afternoon should be mostly sunny with a high of 76F/24C and a low of 55F/13C. Sunrise is at 3:57 am and sunset at 10:06 pm. The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Oosterdam on Tuesday.
  7. After sailing on other lines,we've now sailed on HAL twice,and now booked a sailing on Eurodam for January. I've looked at Youtube,and been impressed by what I see. For those that have been on her,what are the good and bad points?ts?
  8. This will be my first cruise with HAL. I cruised with Celebrity a couple of times and loved it. On both Celebrity cruises I was on an AFT cabin, Deck 7 for the first one and Deck 8 for the second one. For this Panama cruise on Eurodam. I tried to book an AFT cabin on Deck 7. The travel website I was using will not allow me to select an AFT cabin on Deck 7. The best I could do was pick a guaranteed VE cabin. I called the travel agent associated with the website to confirm that a guaranteed VE would be on Deck 7, hopefully port side too. The travel agent told me VE could be on Deck 4, 7, or 8. I don’t see any VE cabins on Deck 4 and 8. Anyone know where these cabins are or what I might end up getting?
  9. does anyone know why the Eurodam was late getting into Seattle today, June 15. Ships usually arrive around 6 am but today the Eurodam arrived late afternoon.
  10. Eurodam will be at the AS dock from 1300-2300 and Nieuw Amsterdam at the CT dock from 1300-2200. Also in port are Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2215 and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200. The nice weather continues with only a 20% chance of rain and a high of 66F/19C and a low of 49F/9C. Sunrise is at 3:52 am and sunset at 10:09 pm.

  11. Hi there, we're just booking our first HAL cruise, an R/T Vancouver to Hawaii at the end of September and the category we're looking at is on deck 8. Directly above the stateroom is the Lido pool. My assumption is that it should be fine as we're not likely to have too many young kids but our other cruises have always had us on a deck that has cabins above and below. Has anyone had experience with cabins on deck 8 under the pool? Any advice is appreciated!
  12. Making their regular Monday visit to Juneau are the Signature Sisters. Both are due in at 1300 with NA leaving the CT dock at 2200 and Eurodam leaving the AS dock at 2300. "Himself" will be on NA. Also in port are Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2215, Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200, and Azamara Quest tendering from 1330-2300. Another yucky day in Juneau with a 100% chance of rain. The predicted high is 57F/14C and the low 49F/9C. Sunrise is at 3:51 am and sunset at 10:07 pm.

  13. We are looking at the partially obstructed cabins on deck 4 near the midship elevators. We have never considered this location before so any help will be appreciated. What is the noise level like in these cabins? We were thinking of a large inside but I recently learned that I really don't like not being able to see outside. Thanks Marcia
  14. What non-alcoholic beer is served on Eurodam / HAL? Although I still occasionally drink wine and liquor, I have switched to non-alcoholic beer. My fave is Clausthaler, with Beck's coming in second. http://www.clausthaler.com/ I have tricked my beer-loving friends into thinking Clausthaler is a craft beer. It's perfect when I "feel like a beer" or when I want something different than water, tea, coffee. Here in Texas you can find it at Specs and Total Wine (I always call first) and more rarely, some HEB grocery stores. I would guess that I could bring on my own non-alcoholic beer since... Via goog, on a 3'rd party web site about what beverages are allowed to be brought on board HAL >> Bottled Water and soda is also allowed (no limit) as long as you carry it on board with you on embarkation day. I tried to find answer to this on Know Before You Go PDF, but only saw the info about how 1 bottle of wine is OK then more at $18 per bottle. So much to read and learn as a first-time HAL cruiser!
  15. we have booked the Eurodam to Alaska the end of July. We cruise all the time (mid 40's couple)... but we like to hang out by the pool, have cocktails, listen to music while soaking up the sun.. Now that we have booked this Alaska cruise, I'm 2nd guessing and think I may get bored during sea days, etc... What is there to do during the day for people who normally like to party by the pool and soak up the sun? T.I.A.
  16. Hi all, Sailing on Eurodam for Alaskan cruise in August. Is there a way I can see what wines are offered by the bottle (and price). I adore Meomi Pinot Noir and typically like to have a glass or two with dinner. I was going to bring a couple of bottles and pay corkage but if the wine is already offered on the ship the price might be about the same as purchasing on my own and bringing . I am also planning on bringing a bottle of Rose for the cabin and understand that if consumed in the cabin one does not pay corkage fee. Thanks for any assist!
  17. Hello, I have a few questions for the partial view stateroom experts please: -I have googled a few reviews of these rooms and it looks like you stare out at ugly lifeboat/tender equipment, I'm assuming there is some type of view though? -Will tender prep wake us at some ungodly hour? -Any problem with noise from the shops below? -I noticed several rooms mid-ship are for crew, and I thought I saw the cruise director coming out of one once while waiting for an elevator; any noise issues since crew come/go at all hours? -I don't get the floor to ceiling window concept, is it for people to be able to see above/below and around the lifeboats? Did you like/dislike it? -Would you consider them to be a good value? What you book these rooms again? Or steer clear? -Anything else important to pass along. Thank you so much, happy Father's Day and happy sailing! (Forgive me if this has already been discussed, I have trouble searching for older threads since they revamped this site, so feel free to link). Many of the reviews were 10 years old too, so some info is no longer relevant, ie. the tv's are all different now I believe.
  18. With an unusual visit to Juneau, Maasdam gives us three HAL ships to watch. Nieuw Amsterdam will be at the CT dock from 1300-2200. Eurodam will be at the AS dock from 1300-2300. Maasdam will be tendering from 1400-2300. Also in port are Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2215 and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200. We are back to typical weather in Juneau with a 90% chance of rain (1/4 inch predicted) and a high of only 56F/13C and a low of 52F/11C. Sunrise is at 3:53 am and sunset at 10:02 pm. The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Oosterdam on Tuesday.
  19. I just put a hold on a Eurodam June 15 cruise. We’ve cruised witH HAL several times (never aboard the Eurodam however). Never cruised with celebrity. How would these two different ships compare? I need to make up my mind soon. Thank you.
  20. We are looking at booking the Eurodam for a September, 2020 Alaskan cruise and Panama Canal cruise. We have cruised on Princess and Royal Caribbean with the kids. What can you tell me about the Eurodam? How does it compare to Princess? We were looking at a deck 6 Verandah balcony cabin. What is the best deck to be on? Thanks!
  21. Eurodam will be at the AS dock from 1300-2300 and Nieuw Amsterdam at the CT dock from 1300-2200. Also in port are Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2215 and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200. There is a 50% chance of rain with the forecast for occasional showers. High will be 58F/14C and the low 47F/8C. Sunrise is at 3:59 am and sunset at 9:54 pm. The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Oosterdam on Tuesday.
  22. Does anyone know if the Naturalist and Enrichment lectures on the Eurodam in Alaska are recorded and available to replay on a loop or on-demand in your cabin? I think some of these lectures are at 7AM when I expect to be sound alseep! The lectures sound really interesting.
  23. Just read the latest review from the Eurodam in May that reports some sort of Mechanical Problem and shaking. I've quoted it below. I then went back and read some reviews in April and they are complaining about something similar as well. There is no new dry dock scheduled to fix anything. Can this problem have any effects on the Eurodam's Alaska Cruises this summer? Anyone have any recent experience? "first my one and really only complaint was the ship felt funny in the way it was vibrating, I did read that there was a problem and it had to stay in San Diego for a extra day or two.but it was like someone was shaking the bed every 5 seconds it was pretty consistent for the first 3 days, then when in Glacier bay it stopped and then returned when we went to Sitka i guess the speed of the ship was the reason."
  24. I am looking at 8041 8045 and 8037 on the navigation deck. I can't tell from the posted pictures, is it easy to watch television from bed ? It is a strange question but that is how I fall asleep at night. Thanks Marcia
  25. This starts my Eurodam live thread where I will be collecting menus (hopefully for 7-day Alaska season, too), gathering crew information, answering any CC HAL questions, and giving my impressions of the ship. This Pacific Coastal cruise was scheduled to stop in Victoria BC where I could at last complete my photographs of Butchart Gardens. Two days ago all passengers received an email announcing that the ship asipods had become entangeled in unmarked fishing nets and would have to postpone the stop in Victoria as well as delaying departure until the following day sos that repairs can be made. As a result, every passenger will receive a refund of port fees for Victoria as well as $50 refundable OBC. The ship is planning a sail away party for our noon Tuesday departure. As reported in another thread, the Eurodam is arriving Sunday evening in San Diego rather than at 7:00 AM on Monday so that repairs can be started early. Hopefully, with departing passengers in port early, we new passengers can board at 11:30 AM. The good news is that our Tamarind Bar Meet & Greet now coincides with noon departure on Tuesday, so 46 of my fellow roll call members will have both a great view as we sail away and our own private bar. Last night, I received an email upgrading me to a Neptune Suite (first-ever free upgrade in all of my cruising years). I have urged my fellow roll call members, many first-time cruisers, to use this thread to give their impressions as we spend four days of relaxation aboard the Eurodam. Weather forecast for four days is temp in the 60's, two-foot waves for every day, and lots of sun. There is a possiblity of a quick shower in Vancouver a we disembark. This will be my first time aboard the Eurodam so I will be comparing it to both the Nieuw Amsterdam and my last cruise on the Konigsdam. Hopefully, this thread will be informational for those on subsequent Eurodam cruises.
