For our recent cruise to Alaska on Holland America’s Eurodam, we had originally booked an inside guarantee stateroom.
When we got our cabin assignment, we were not excited about it even though it was a 7-category upgrade within the inside “meta category”.
This is the view when you first walk into cabin #5078, located on deck five mid-ship. Cabin # 5078 is a category V stateroom, the highest (i.e. most expensive) category of verandah stateroom on the Eurodam.
The large panel of mirrors behind the headboard reflects light and makes the cabin seem larger (in addition to being useful when getting ready for dinner.)
All cabins that accommodate three guests are marked by a “0” symbol on the Eurodam deck plan.
The storage cabinets above the sofa contain blue wool plaid blankets — perfect for wrapping up in while watching the glaciers calve when the ship is in Glacier Bay.
Note the silver fruit bowl on the coffee table in the photo above. There is a card in it that you check with the kind of fresh fruit you want, and the bowl is refilled daily. (We checked bananas and pears, but could have added apples and oranges.)This stateroom features floor-to-ceiling windows, and a lockable door that opens onto the balcony.
Other key features in this desk area are the electric plugs and USB ports. There are both European and U.S. plugs, as well as several USB ports for charging various smartphones, tablets and other devices.There are also USB charging ports on each side of the bed, very important for those of us who use are smartphones as alarm clocks. (This was a nice improvement since our prior cruise on the Eurodam.)
Another upgrade on the Eurodam is the flat screen entertainment system, with complimentary on-demand movies and television shows, as well as live television channels as well as shipboard information channels.
We appreciate the three study wall hooks.
