Travel blogger Shanna Schultz recently sailed aboard Eurodam and documented her sailing experience on her blog thereandbackagaintravel.com. In the following post she lists her favorite spaces on the ship. Enjoy!
Holland America Line’s Eurodam is a lovely ship. Her maiden voyage was in 2008, and she is the newest cruise ship that we have been on. The Eurodam is one of the largest ships in Holland America’s fleet (she is nicely sized to accommodate 2,104 passengers and is 936 feet long), but by cruise ship standards, she really is a mid-sized ship.
The smaller ship size made the Eurodam feel cozy and familiar, but not crowded. It allowed for the design of very personal feeling public spaces. Here the highlights of my very favorite spaces on the Holland America Eurodam:
The Silk Den: An innovative space with one of the very best views on the ship, the Silk Den is a spot that I wished that I had spent more time in. It feels quaint and cozy, and it was never very crowded. It would have been a great place to tuck away to read for a couple of hours, or to meet with friends for drinks. The Silk Den is designed to compliment the Pan Asian cuisine featured in the Tamarind restaurant across the hall, and they have special cocktails and drinks that are not served anywhere else on the ship. You can even satisfy your Sake cravings, if you want (and it is a great place to try it if you have never had it before. The prices weren’t over the top. We paid about $11 for a small carafe of good quality sake one night, which wasn’t terrible).
