There’s a lavishly equipped library on the Eurodam, in the Explorations Café, which also contains the ship’s public-access internet terminals.
Unlike the cyber cafes on many cruise ships, it is in a prime position, high up at the bow, and adjoining the Crow’s Nest bar, rather than being tucked away below decks.
There are times, though, when it is more convenient to use my lap-top, and being the newest ship in the Holland America fleet, Eurodam has wi-fi throughout every cabin.
Up to a point, that is.
There’s no signal at the writing desk by the window, and I can only get a half-decent signal if I sit at Mrs Greybeard’s dressing table – which is not always convenient.
Even then, the signal is much improved if I wedge the cabin door ajar.
I’ve never had to open the door to let the internet in before.
