  1. 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. Monday is looking to be the nicest day of the week with a 0% chance of rain and a high of 63F/17C but a chilly low of 44F/7C. Sunrise is at 5:28 am and sunset at 8:33 pm. The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Oosterdam on Tuesday.
  2. All three ships have 5 star ratings on c c. Similar costs and all depart from Seattle. This would be a multigenerational family cruise with passengers from one to 72 years of age.. Advice appreciated.
  3. Hello all. We have never cruised to Alaska and my packing list is the opposite of a Caribbean cruise which is sundresses and flip flops. 😂 If anyone has sailed Eurodam on the Glacier Bay route could you share which night were the Gala nights? Thanks so much!
  4. So as I began contemplating a last minute Alaskan cruise this year, the limited selection (especially for cabins) at the last minute had me looking at cruises for next Summer. I was planning to take the Nieuw Amsterdam (as we did last year), BUT it is being replaced by the Koningsdam. Last year we had a Signature Suite on the Nieuw Amsterdam and, of course, I started by looking at those. As some other threads here on CC have pointed out there are VERY few Signature Suites on the Koningsdam, which was surprising to me. However, as I began to compare the online videos of the various Koningsdam suites I was surprised at the new layout for the Signature Suites. Indeed, I'm not a fan. More investigation shows that the even pricier Neptune suites on the Kdam are much closer equivalent to the Signature Suites in everything from layout to size to deck positioning and number of suites. Even then, you lose the extra little "make-up" desk on the Kdam (although Kdam's Neptune cabin is wider). One of the biggest disappointments of the Kdam's Signature suites, however, involves the size of the balcony - they are much more shallow than the equivalent NA/Eurodam SS balconies. The Neptune balconies on the Kdam are essentially the same depth as the SS on NA/Euro. At the end of the day, to get the same Nieuw Amsterdam "Signature Suite" experience on the Kdam, I feel like I would really have to "pay up" for the Neptune suite...bummer. Given how few signature suites there are, I'm not sure why HAL bothered with them on the Kdam. Definitely a bummer and a clear "revenue generation" move by HAL (not surprising of course - Corporate America FTW!). Has anyone else noticed this?
  5. My wife and I just returned from an Alaska cruise on the Eurodam. I've scanned the daily "When & Where" activity guides for that cruise. I hope that some people who will be sailing on the Eurodam this summer will find it useful. Here's the link:
  6. We'll be onboard the Eurodam next March, docking overnight in Honolulu. There seems to be 2 terminals there: #2 and #11. Which one will the Eurodam be at?
  7. The Westerdam approaching Margerie Glacier as seen from the Eurodam leaving Margerie Glacier last Tuesday.
  8. Eurodam will be at the AS dock from 1300-2300 and Nieuw Amsterdam will be at the CT dock from 1300-2200.

The lovely weather we have seen recently is going to slowly go back to the usual Juneau weather. Monday is supposed to be sunny with a high of 75F/24C and a low of 52F/11C. Sunrise is at 5:13 am and sunset at 8:51 pm. The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Oosterdam on Tuesday.

  10. sorry! Posted twice ☺️
  11. Let me start by saying most of the really ugly had nothing to do with the ship.The good is the outstanding crew especially Guest Relations for service above and beyond. I know the reasons not to fly in the day of sailing but it wasn’t possible to fly earlier. My AA flight from PHILADELPHIA backed off the gate ontime and then it happened, we ended up with 2 mechanical delays on 2 different aircraft, bottom line we took off 4 hours late. We landed in Seattle at 2:40 pm and were told the ship was waiting but we couldn’t wait for luggage. It will be sent to Juneau and to buy what is necessary onboard. I had noticed but what I was wearing, sandals, t shirt, pants and a light sweater. Once onboard, the fantastic front office crew gave me an emergency toiletries kit. i had to buy a T shirt in the shop to sleep in .We wee offered free laundry with expedited service, but I had nothing to change into. There’s nothing like Gala night in the Pinnacle in a pair of dirty slacks and a long sleeve top from the gift shop. The really ugly part with the ship involved my cell phone . My charger was in my packed luggage, so I had to purchase one in the shop. The bottom line was either the charger was defective or the outlet in the cabin was bad and it fried my I phone. i ended up buying a prepaid cell in Juneau to have a phone for the week. My luggage showed in Juneau and I’m now walking to hear the status of 2 claims filed with Seattle for the phone and the onboard purchases. It’s an experience I never want to repeat, but again the crew , especially ABY from Guest Service and Julianne and Lizka from Shore Ex went way above to assist me.

  13. We are looking at the aft facing cabins on the Eurodam or Nieuw Amsterdam. This will be a change for us since we usually stay close to elevators. For those who have stayed in this area, did you find the distance to the elevators to be a significant inconvience?
  14. Took an upgrade w/O looking at photos. Now upon checking, the TV seems oddly placed? We like to catch up in the morning & maybe catch a movie at night, but this set up would seem to make it hard to watch from bed.
  15. The Signature Sisters will be making their weekly visit to Juneau with Eurodam 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 0800-2000, Ruby Princess at the FKL dock from 1100-2215, and Solstice at the AJ dock from 1330-2200.

  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. 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.

  22. 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.
  23. 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?
  24. 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?
  25. 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.
