After departing the Fincantieri Marghera shipyard in mid June, 2008, Eurodam sailed along the West Coast of Europe to Southampton, UK, with a service stop in Málaga, Spain.

Eurodam hosted a number of travel professional, media, and consumer events in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.  After showcasing Eurodam throughout these events, she was officially named on 01 July, 2008 by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands in Rotterdam.

On 02 July, 2008, Eurodam sailed on a three day prelude journey from Rotterdam to Hamburg, Germany, and to Copenhagen, Denmark.  She then pursued her first official cruise on 05 July, 2008 from Copenhagen sailing to the Norwegian Fjords and Scotland.  Her first sailing season included voyages to the Baltic Capitals before heading West to North America to sail Canada & New England before her winter Caribbean season.

Following earlier shipbuilding design success, many areas of the Eurodam were designed by VFD Interiors such as the public areas on decks one, two, and three (except Northern Lights and the Mainstage).  The Neptune Lounge and public areas on decks nine, ten, and eleven were designed by Petter Yran & Bjørn Storbraaten.  Another exception is the Greenhouse Spa on Lido Deck, which was designed by VFD Interiors.

NB Design Group was in charge of guest accommodation corridors and all guest stateroom interiors, except for the Penthouse Suites which were designed by VFD.  Italian architect Luke de Micco, working for Fincantieri, designed the Pinnacle Bar on Lower Promenade Deck.  Holland America Line designed the service areas, crew, and staff accommodations.

Just as on all other Holland America Line ships, the Eurodam is truly a floating art gallery.  Much of the art styles will be familiar to guests who have sailed before and there is also a host of new and exciting pieces throughout the ship.

Overall, the Eurodam is a salute to the rich tradition of Holland America Line while bring a fresh, contemporary feel for guests and being relevant to the current cruise market.
