What an awesome opportunity it was to sail aboard the luxurious Holland America Eurodam. We sailed the Alaska Inside Passage with endless miles of untouched wilderness. The Eurodam is a very elegant midsized ship with lots to offer. This ship is beautiful with very comfortable beds and the staterooms are immaculate.
