verandah, stateroom #4078, Eurodam, Holland AmericaFor 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”.

Luckily, a special paid upgrade became available two days before our departure. We paid to upgrade to Verandah Stateroom 5078.#4078 verandah stateroom , Eurodam, Holland AmericaHere is a look inside Verandah Stateroom #5078

first look, verandah stateroom #4078, Eurodam, Holland AmericaThis 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.

queen bed, verandah stateroom #4078, Eurodam, Holland AmericaThis cabin has two lower beds that can be converted to a queen-size bed as shown in the photo above.

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.)

Cabin #5078 is designated as a triple, with space for three guests. If there is a third passenger in the cabin, this sofa would be converted into a bed each evening.

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.)Mr. Jones on the verandah of cabin #4078, Eurodam, Holland AmericaThis 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.bedside USB charging ports, verandah stateroom #4078, Eurodam, Holland AmericaThere 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.)

closets and hooks, verandah stateroom #4078, Eurodam, Holland AmericaThis cabin has three large, spacious closets with bars in each for hanging clothes on wooden hangers, as well as fold-down shelves for folded clothes.

We appreciate the three study wall hooks.

Travelin Jones on verandah, stateroom #5078 on Holland America's EurodamWhile we don’t usually care if we have a verandah in our cabin, we did find it handy to take in the fantastic Inside Passage and Alaska views.
