INTRODUCTION

This blog-photo album is a summary of our 24-day cruise on Holland America's ms Eurodam in the Spring of 2011. We cruised through the Baltic and North Seas, stopping at 14 different ports (2 twice) for a total of 16 port days. We spent nearly a week in London pre-cruise. Links to all port pages are in the table under the Eurodam banner.

Vendors: See vendor list at left; vendors also linked on blog pages. If there is no vendor listed for a city we used HAL excursions or walked on our own, not using any paid guide service.

Excursions from HAL: Attached (link at left) is a generic copy of the Shore Excursions booklet provided to us by Holland America; it's been linked because those considering a cruise such as this might want some indication of available shore excursions. We relied heavily on other resources for many of our excursions. As we were happy with all of them we're happy to recommend them and there's a list, with links, to the left.

Maps = Information: Perhaps the most important links on all pages are to the Google Interactive Maps. There's a wealth of information linked on the maps!

For most Americans a European cruise represents a significant investment in time and money. It is our hope that those who will cruise after us can make use of our experiences to create for themselves a "cruise of their dreams" with memories that will last a lifetime.
