Prinsendam Overview

Until September 2018 cruise around the UK, Iceland and the Baltic. In September itineraries include the port for Cairo (see the pyramids) and ruins of ancient Ephesus. By the end of 2018 cruises return to the Caribbean and South America. In January 2019 Prinsendam circumnavigates South America, reaching Antarctica and sailing 1500 km up the Amazon River. For the remainder of 2019 there’s a great variety of two to five week cruises around the Continental Atlantic, the UK, Baltic Sea, Norway, Iceland and Greenland. This is an exciting smaller vessel that offers the feel of a classic yacht and the service of a cruise ship. It is suited to more mature travellers who appreciate contemporary conveniences. Holland America Line arranges excellent onshore tours.


Standard cabins are custom designed, spacious, and very well appointed, for example with walk-in closets, full length bath, and one or two single beds. Some have a third berth, and others have interconnecting doors. A few have a private balcony. All grades of cabins come with a basket of fresh fruit on request, flat-screen TV running movies, DVD player, bathrobes, hairdryers, make-up mirrors, kit of personal toiletries, plush bedding, and evening turn-down service. Filipino and Indonesian stewards give friendly and unobtrusive service. The décor is very pleasing and comfortable. Complimentary meals can be ordered for in-suite dining around the clock. Note that there are three single cabins, and 10 that are wheelchair-accessible. The self-service laundrettes are practical for the longer cruises.

Food and Dining

The ship has a variety of formal and casual dining areas. The La Fontaine Dining Room with its extensive ocean views serves open-seating breakfast and lunch. There are two seatings at dinner, at assigned tables, set with fine crystal and china ware. One section allows for guests who prefer to dine at their own schedule. Two nights in seven are formal nights, perhaps preceded with pre-dinner drinks, then after your meal retire to the Showroom at Sea or a musical recital. The alternative restaurant The Pinnacle Grill is well worth the additional cover charge, with meals served in most elegant settings. The venue specialises in fine steaks and seafoods. Ask about wine packages.


At night the tiered Showroom At Sea offers twice-nightly quality cabaret acts. Singles and older couples mingle sip drinks in elegant surrounds at the upper deck Crow’s Nest Lounge with its wrap-around views of the ship’s progress, the beautifully crafted Explorer’s Lounge, and the Ocean Bar. Evening entertainment includes the casino.
