MS Eurodam is a Signature Class cruise ship for Holland America Line. Following a christening ceremony by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands on 1 July 2008 [3] she entered service on July 5 2008 on her maiden voyage from Copenhagen. The Eurodam is the 80th ship to enter Holland America's service and, at 86,700 tons and carrying 2,104 passengers, she is the largest Holland America ship to date.[3]

New features on Eurodam include a Pan-Asian restaurant, an African-theme to the Explorer's Lounge, an Italian specialty restaurant and a redesigned atrium and show lounge. Ten cabins have floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall windows. Eighty-six percent of the cabins are on the outside, and 67% have balconies. She also has dynamic positioning abilities, and is powered by six diesel generators and propelled by Azipod propulsion technology.[5]
