Room was small, but doable. It took two grown men and a jack-ass to open and close the verandah door. We were supposed to have a walk in closet, but there was none. I complained to the front desk(G.R.) and the lady asked me if I could stand in the closet. I told her I probably could if there were no clothes hanging up, at which time she told me if I could stand up in it , it was a walk in closet. I kept complaining with other G.R. staff and they finally gave us each a meal in the Pinnacle Grill, which was next to nothing as we already have 50% off in the Grill.
Our starboard view was delightful, especially because when we cruised the Gironde estuary we were able to view both sides of the river. The room was quite comfortable for two and we appreciated the verdanda. This deck offers a great deal of quiet and privacy as there are few cabins located on this deck, and we were quite close to the library, casino and bars.
Never, ever book 200 series aft cabins on the Prinsendam. Terrible engine noise and vibration which worsens as seas get rougher. Veranda cabins in this area get water draining and spilling over on them from aft pool making them unusable. Avoid these cabins at all costs. Read entire member review.
Deck 8. Really easy to get to the public rooms. Room was quiet, bed comfortable. Only had neighbors on one side. Loved having the large veranda with nice furniture. Cabin was same as those on the Dolphin Deck we have had before, otherwise. Clean, good storage. Good TV, good attendants.
