  1. Hi all, We're looking to book the 11/16 Panama Canal cruise on the Eurodam for our 20th anniversary celebration. Do you all find using a travel agent the best way to go to get OBC? Or if OBC is offered, it's the same no matter how you book (online by yourself, etc?) We do not have a TA and are open to using one especially since this cruise sails out of San Diego and into Fort Lauderdale. I've seen stuff on HAL website about Flight Ease and/ or $1000 credit for airfare or something. I don't really understand that. Just look for some good advice here.
  2. Sadly, the Eurodam currently at sea is running into bad weather. Our first stop in Hawaii (Kona) has been canceled for this Saturday. We're making it up Monday, but that means skipping the previously-planned stop in Nawiliwili. Shame. We'd have preferred to stick with Nawiliwili if it was a choice between one and the other just to be able to see another island. I must point out this is one reason HAL's EXC program is an advantage vs local booking on your own. I was able to cancel my Nawiliwili bookings for full refunds, thank goodness, but my Kona booking has past their less generous refund window. We can reschedule, but currently don't have the numbers for the flight to still happen on the new day. (If anyone happens to be on board, we'd love to have you join us on Big Island Air for an airplane tour of the big island -- much cheaper and longer than helicopter tours with more generous weight restrictions.) So please pay careful attention to your cancelation policies for private excursions and if you can't afford to lose out in case of a rescheduled port, EXC is the way to go. The extra price booking through the ship is best thought of as insurance. That's not usually worth it to us, but I bet this flip-flop is throwing a wrench in a lot of private arrangements!
  3. Hi everyone! I was able to purchase a vow renewal package through our online account on HAL. This will be for the December 9th Mexico sailing. Does anyone know if I should contact HAL to arrange any other details, or is it just a set time that the ship determines? The package states that it includes dinner at the Pinnacle Grill and a photo with the Captain. It was surprisingly inexpensive. Anything else I should be aware of? It's just the two of us celebrating. Thanks in advance for your help!
  4. We are considering booking an aft-wrap on the Eurodam for a Mexico 7 day cruise. There are several aft-wraps available (on different decks of course), so I was wondering which deck to select. We have sailing on the Vista ships deck 5 huge aft-wraps and loved them, but I understand that the Eurodam is different, so any guidance is appreciated.
  5. I understand that the Eurodam now has wall-mounted TVs in the cabins. This morning we booked into a VB cabin for the Hawaii cruise out of San Diego in February. My wife uses wireless headsets to hear the TV. Does anybody know if the TV our cabin will have an accessible headset jack? Thanks.

  7. Can anyone recently off the Eurodam tell me if there are USB charge ports in the cabins? Heard she has recently came out of refurbishment. I came off the Rotterdam last Jan '17 just after refurbishment and she had 2 charge ports in the lamp in our room.
  8. It seems some ships,maybe all ,no longer hold happy hour at the Crows Nest but at Billboard. Is this the case? Im thinking the 4 o'clock hour specifically aboard the Eurodam. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks, DJG541
  9. Anyone know the fees for the hydro pool on the Eurodam, I'm mainly looking for a day or half day fee, not the whole cruise. Thanks
  10. `I've just made the newbie mistake of seeing a deal, and booking it, without research - 17 night circle Hawaii, Eurodam, departing San Diego Feb 20. Great price through a well known travel agent discounter. I signed up Monday. Instead of 100% single supplement? I'm taking a friend, along, as my guest. And, all those sea days? Those will be amazing. But, I didn't give a thought to shore excursions before booking. How hard could it be? I'm an eejit. This isn't the Caribbean. I'm visiting a US state, well known for its high cost of living. The islands are much larger than the islands in the Caribbean. I know I could get a discount excursion package with Roberts Hawaii, much the same tours as HAL offers, but for less money. But, I'd rather be in a small group rather than on a bus. And, the tours they offer are pretty bland. I also know many, many cruise pax rent cars. But, both of us are women, and neither loves the challenge of unknown mountain roads in an unfamiliar vehicle. Maybe it's a genetic XX gene thing? Plus, I've also tried searching the Hawaii board without much luck. For example, Valley Isle offers Road to Hana abbreviated tours to Pride of America pax, but not for Eurodam. So, do any of you have fond memories of cruise excursions, and/or names of tour guides you'd like to share? And, to cap it off? That BLASTED discount agency estimates it won't have our booking number to book HAL excursions for another 2 weeks! The best may be sold out by then! HELP! Thanks in advance to everyone. I am going to LOVE this cruise for all those sea days, but I promised my friend Hawaii.

  13. Will do a proper review when time allows but just a download of our Eurodam Nov 29th-Dec9th. Drove from Palm Springs (rare driving rain!) San Diego embarkation was a breeze. We had never been on Euro but can compare to Zandaam, Westerdam, Koningsdam, New Amsterdam, Osterdam, Volendam, Zuiderdam. We are super active 50 somethings that have loved Holland for over 20 years. (still happily working and caring for aging family) Can not report on the MDR this time, chose specialty, Lido, NY Pizza, Dive In or room service. (Active late itinerary's and an overnight had us dining off shore a lot too) THE GREAT: Tamarind never fails us on any ship that offers it. 4 meals in 10 days. LOVED it again and our waitstaff Erika and Panatda. Wine Steward Carisma! We find the steak, seafood and soup offerings there more consistently delicious than Pinnacle. New York Pizza only when Rico was on shift. Have craved his pizza since we were first on the inaugural Koningsdam and were so happy to see him again. Sea View Bar-Mark, Geoffry (Jeff), Kanlaynee are hospitality perfection. The itinerary. Have never been to Loreto or La Paz. Main reason for booking this cruise. Rare itinerary every few years or so. LOVED both (more in review) and will seek again soon for another cruise or land based vacation to get back to either in a heartbeat. Cellar Wine package & Soda card, best deal going with mariner discount. Unlimited Laundry-came back perfectly every time. The casino & staff. Won HUGE last day!! Every hardworking crew member we encountered in every dept. THE GOOD: Pinnacle for lunch/dinner (did both) lovely service and food. International station at Lido for the lunches when were on board. LOVED the Indian cuisine day. Lido breakfast offerings, those dang cinnamon rolls are dangerous! Eggs made to order, bacon crispy or not. Toast, bagel station and a super fast toaster. No self serve buffet! Cantellano always consistent and good throughout the fleet. THE BAD: Of all of our trips starting with embarkation we were disappointed with the upkeep of the ship. She is still lovely but tired and in need of TLC. Serious wear and tear on carpets, furniture both in stateroom and hallway carpets. Have not experienced this before on any Holland ship. Short staffed all the way around, cabin still had someone else's socks/tie in the back of the closet and breakfast goo on the coffee table. We loved our cabin stewards so no formal complaint made. As the trip progressed things got better. Too many hours for hard working crew to get the job done well in limited time, particularly on turn around day. Hire more/charge more? Delay embarkation until 3:00 so everything is fresh/wiped down and ready for the embarking guests? Missed the hand washing stations too! THE AWFUL: HVAC system. No way to regulate the thermostat fan. Either HOT or COLD. Regardless the fan blew over the bed at high speed with no on/off. Day 6 major demographic of the ship sneezing, coughing with cruise crud simultaneously. (yes, we are the people that wipe the entire stateroom with hospital grade wipes and open every door with a tissue :) Thankfully we ended this trip with the cough crud instead of beginning with it. Upper respiratory infection for both of us. Husband in construction concerned that air filters/sitting condensate need to be updated replaced to avoid in the future. First time it's happened for us. No fun coming home sick, and can't blame this on an air flight. THE WORST: In all of our cruises with Holland this was indeed some of the worst behavior we have ever observed from a large handful of our fellow older passengers. Demanding, loud, finger snapping and disrespectful to the hard working crew and impacting other paying guests. Pushing, shoving, entitled. Behavior that would never be tolerated anywhere on land. This crew took it on the chin with a smile every time when these folks would have been asked the door at any establishment at home. Perhaps that's why they choose a cruise line that caters to an older demo? HAL crew deserves medals for what what we observed. Reminder to self: Never lose your sensor button when you get older (or any age for that matter) to be courteous, respectful, mindful, clean and RESPECTFUL to people around you! THE ABSOLUTE BEST: HAL in general, for every treasured memory and adventure we have made starting with my Grandmother that introduced me. (yes many changes and cut-backs since I was a young lady but love it almost the same) The friends we have made along the way for a lifetime. Disembarkation-super easy. Crazy unnecessary yelling traffic lady on disembark (proved to be comic relief with our fellow passengers to our parking shuttle) I'm certain someone else reading that was there will chime in! SUMMARY: Our days in Loreto, La Paz were priceless. Not sure we will sail the Eurodam again unless the itinerary was perfect, and a retrofit/deep clean happens. Booked the future cruise deposit so the next adventure awaits!
  14. I have been assigned VB cabin 6036 Eurodam Quad I am a single traveler in a quad room. Question: Does the fourth bed that pulls out from the wall retract back into the wall or is it permanently visible and not able to disappear. I would prefer that it retracts so I do not have to see it. Hopefully someone who has been in a quad veranda can provide me this information. Thanks Jo Ann
  15. We’re about to cruise on the Eurodam and we like Asian food. Does the Tamarind Restaurant facilitate gluten free diets? The reason I ask is that most varieties of soy and teriyaki sauces contain wheat (which contains gluten). I’d love to hear from anyone who is in the same boat that has eaten there.
  16. My husband doesn’t do well maneuvering amongst loads of people. He can walk, but he often uses a Travelscoot or I push him in a transfer chair. Which ship do you feel is better suited to less crowding and tight spaces? Thank you
  17. Day 1 - Sunday 30 DEC 18 We pulled out of the driveway and left the homestead at 1029 hours (1:00 PM) exactly after saying goodbye to Stiv, our cat who was already fast asleep in his basket in front of the window. Maria’s mum Carmen will be “cat-sitting” for the week. We soon, after a stop at a local Starbucks, entered the south-bound 405 Freeway, aka the San Diego Freeway to our destination, the City of the Padres. Took the 74-toll road which makes the drive a tad shorter by-passing Santa Ana, John Wayne Airport, and Costa Mesa and thankfully discovered that traffic was pretty light which put big smiles on our faces. We dealt with the usual congestion back on the (now) Interstate 5 Freeway going through Alisa Viejo and, after passing Camp Pendleton, oorah!, in the Oceanside/Carlsbad area. Decided to grab some lunch by pulling off in Del Mar Heights (just past the San Diego County Fairgrounds in Del Mar) and pulled into the parking lot of a Pollo Loco (Spanish for “Crazy Chicken” which is not to be confused with “Lunatic Chicken.” Those of you outside California, you’re missing out big time if you don’t have any Pollo Loco franchises in your area, good stuff! Once in San Diego itself around 1:30 pm, our usual plan is to pull into the cruise terminal lot and off-load our luggage, handing it to a porter. Got that done no problems, took a bit to get out of the lot because traffic was backed up on Harbor Drive for unk reasons. We then drove to the long-term parking lot of Lindbergh Field (San Diego Int’l. Airport) where we got a nasty surprise in that the lot was closed off with a big sign stating “Lot Full”. Awwwrighty then, what is a mother to do? We drove back to the port and inquired with the valet dude at the Wyndham who told us “sure, that’ll be $40 at night.” Thanks, but no thanks, bud.“ Plan C was to check out the Park and Fly lots along Pacific Hwy and sho’ nough, we found Lot 3 who would take us for eighteen bucks a night. Their shuttle took us back to the B-Street Pier and we were good to go. Check in at, now 2:45 was a breeze, going through security screening and getting checked in. Took the obligatory “welcome onboard” pic and walked the plank to Deck 2 where ship security scanned us on. Our cabin is on Rotterdam deck, port side, smack catty corner from the Neptune Lounge where concierges Maggie and Darlene “reside” and do one heck of a job keeping their guests happy. The cabin obviously has been one of the recently upgraded ones in Freeport dry-dock, incl. darker wood, a large, wall-mounted interactive TV, new furniture, modern fixtures incl. bathroom night lighting, and new carpeting

  19. Booked this cabin for our upcoming Sea of Cortez. Can't seem find any info on the balcony size or what type of patio furniture will be provided. Thanks much for any information you could provide. Susan
  20. Leaving in two weeks for our first HA cruise on the Eurodam. A few quick questions (really more out of curiosity). 1) How is the coffee? And where exactly is the café/bar to get a morning latte? 2) Read in some posts that seating in the BB King and other lounges are hard to get unless you are there way in advance? Is that the norm? 3) We splurged on a retreat cabana, do we just show up or do we need to get passes? 4) We didn't book any specialty restaurants yet. I know on Celebrity upon boarding, they are often discounted on the first night. Is this the case on HA? Thanks all!
  21. Does anyone know when check in and boarding starts in San Diego? My documents say 1 PM but I would expect it is earlier. We were planning to arrive about 11 but I am wondering if that is too early. Thanks, Jen
  22. We are set up for my choice dining simply because early is too early and late is too late. It is only the two of us. Because of our schedules, me being a full time student and DH having hours all over the place being in the airline industry, we just don't get to sit down for meals together very often. One reason we are doing a cruise. A couple of questions: Dinner in the Main Dining Room: With my choice dining, what are the chances we can get a two top table and about what hours are the best for that? Breakfast and Lunch in the Main Dining Room vs. Lido: If we wanted up "upgraded" breakfast or lunch and decide on the main dining room, would we also be able to get a possible two top table? And is breakfast and lunch really upgraded that much over the Lido. Lido vs. MDR for dinner If nothing on the menu in the MDR jumps out at us (or we don't want to dress up), how is the Lido for dinner compared to Lido for breakfast and lunch. Note this is our first time on HAL.
  23. We are going on the eurodam over new years and wondering if anyone is currently on the eurodam and can share which movies are being shown on tv and in the theater?
  24. Embarkation & Debarkation went very smoothly fro this Mexican riviera 7 night cruise from the port of San Diego . There were 3 ports of call , Cabo San Lucas ;which is a tender port ,then to Mazatlan & finally to Puerto Vallarta .Weather was very good for all 3 ports The Eurodam was sparkling with many Christmas ornament displays & a giant Atrium display on Deck 1 near to the Customer Relations desk . However ,we did not hear Christmas music in the public areas & that was disappointing This cruise has the best staff & service & the food presentation,quality & taste in the main dining room was the best we ever enjoyed on a Holland America cruise ship . Our cruise critic Meet & mingle group had the pleasure of meeting the Captain ,Hotel Director & another senior officer for questions & answer period & a photo shoot . Eurodam was sparkling clean & all other services were fabulous .We had a great time on this sailing
  25. Hi y'all! We took our first Alaska cruise in 2015 on the Crown Princess. We want to go back, but are considering HAL because the itineraries and rooms look better. I'm sure this has been asked before, but which ship is better, Eurodam, Noordam, or Westerdam? I've heard that the lido deck lunch options aren't all that great but I'd love more input on that. On the Crown, we had several great choices for lunch. We only ate in the MDR for dinner, but that was because it was so amazing there was no reason to go anywhere else. Pros/Cons on any of those 3 ships?
