Upcoming Cruise: Cruising the Eastern Caribbean

itinGood morning cruisers! It’s time to announce my upcoming cruise sailing this February, so let’s get to it!


On February 16th, I will be embarking on Holland America Line’s MS Eurodam. During that week, the Eurodam will be sailing a 7 night eastern Caribbean itinerary with calls in Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas, and Holland America Line’s award winning private island – Half Moon Cay. All of these ports except San Juan are new ports for me, so I am very excited to experience these new destinations!

Launching her maiden voyage in July of 2008, the ms Eurodam marks Holland America Line’s new Signature-class ships. The ms Eurodam furthers the evolution of Holland America Line’s sophisticated mid-sized ships with 11 passenger decks, a new topside Pan-Asian restaurant and lounge surrounded by panoramic views, an Explorer’s Lounge bar, a new Italian restaurant adjacent to the Lido, elegant luxury jewelry boutique, new atrium bar area, an enhanced and reconfigured show lounge and a new photographic and imaging center. The Eurodam is truly a destination onto herself.

Shore Excursions

My shore excursions are currently in the works, but you will have to wait until I actually do them to learn more!

What’s So Special About This Particular Cruise

You can’t watch TV today without seeing commercials for Dancing with the Stars. Now, you can experience this hit television show at sea! My particular sailing on the Eurodam will feature “Dancing with the Stars” events including dance lessons; a chance to meet the dancers, and a major production starring celebrities and the famed dance pros, complete with costumes and routines from the TV show. So along with my daily reports from the ship, make sure to look out for my reports on the special Dancing with the Stars events onboard.

Everything Else

Yes, I realize that this article was very uninformative, but why would I tell you everything now? I have an entire cruise to tell you all the fun things I will be doing!

Staying Connected

Once onboard, I will be writing an article or two everyday, maybe even posting a video for all to see. I will also be tweeting on our Twitter and posting on our Facebook page. While I’m cruising, make sure to check out the special Eurodam cruise page for the latest articles while I am at sea.
