MS Eurodam is a Signature-class cruise ship for Holland America Line. Eurodam is the 80th ship to enter Holland America's service and, at 86,700 tons and carrying 2,104 passengers, she is the largest Holland America Signature-class ship, along with her sister ship MS Nieuw Amsterdam. She also has dynamic positioning abilities using three 1.9 MW (2,500 hp) bow thrusters and two 17.6 MW (23,600 hp) aft mounted Azipods. Total electrical power generation is 64 MW by six diesel generators.

Service history

Eurodam was christened by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands at Rotterdam, Netherlands on 1 July 2008 before embarking on its official 10-day maiden voyage from Copenhagen on 5 July.

In April and May, the ship operated in the Mediterranean and in Western Europe. From May to August, the ship visited the Baltic, Norway and the British Isles before embarking to Canada and New England in September and October. From late October to early April the ship traveled on alternating western and eastern Caribbean cruises.

Beginning in 2017, from May to September, the ship began operating Alaska inside passage cruises out of Seattle; from late October to early April, she travels on alternating western and eastern Caribbean out of Fort Lauderdale. Eurodam is scheduled to reposition in October 2018 and operate out of San Diego, from late October to early April, and visit Mexico, Hawaii, and the French Polynesia.

Drydock

On 4 April 2011, Eurodam was put into drydock for ten days in Freeport, Bahamas for the first time since construction in 2008. During this time the ship had new paint applied to the hull, the thrusters, Azipod propulsion units, stabilizers and hull fittings were serviced, and new teak decking was installed on the Lido deck.

Eurodam re-entered service on 20 December 2015 after a 14-day dry dock in the Bahamas. Notable modifications include the reconfiguration of the Lido buffet into the Lido Market, the conversion of the Northern Lights disco into the new Gallery Bar, the addition of Lincoln Center Stage featuring chamber music programs nightly, while all suites were upgraded with new furniture, carpet, wall coverings and soft goods.

Amenities

Similar in appearance to Holland America's Vista-class vessels, Eurodam features one additional deck and several interior layout differences.

Eurodam has ten cabins with floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall windows. Eighty-six percent of the cabins are on the outside, and 67% have balconies. In contrast to Nieuw Amsterdam, Eurodam features juliet balconies in its Deck 11 "VT" class staterooms. Throughout the ship are touchscreens with navigation information for passengers.

On board the vessel are five dining rooms, including The Pinnacle Grill in partnership with Le Cirque. Exclusive to the Signature ships are the pan-Asian themed restaurant, Tamarind, and the African-themed Explorer's Bar. The main atrium features artwork designed by Vincent Jansen and throughout the ship are reproductions of famous Dutch artists. The mainstage and theater seat 890 in the audience.​

On 15 July 2017 Oprah Winfrey launched the inaugural “Share the adventure cruise” aboard Eurodam, an exclusive Holland America partnership with the Oprah Magazine O, with O Magazine-inspired activities including tai chi, meditation, an onboard O’s book club, and healthy cooking demonstrations.

MS Eurodam has set the cruise industry’s record by earning its 11th consecutive perfect score of 100 on a routine United States Public Health (USPH) inspection conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) during its last unannounced CDC inspection on 14 January 2017 at homeport Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale, Florida USA).
