Fantastic experience

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Athens (Piraeus)

This was a carefully chosen itinerary for us, taking in important Ancient sites of Turkey, Israel, Greece & Italy. The ship itself wasn't as important, although obviously we wanted a reputable company and acceptable level of comfort.

Well our time on the ship was a wonderful surprise - a level of luxury we did not expect. The Prinsendam is a beautiful ship and being smaller gives a more intimate feel. We actually ran across the same people several times, even getting to know a few. The cruise critic roll call for the cruise helped in this regard too. Lovely cabin, BIG bath, fabulous food and seamless administration by HAL. It didn't matter what needed to be done: it was executed smoothly & efficiently. For us this included early disembarking at Naples, and this was achieved with no fuss, while keeping us informed constantly.

The itinerary was FANTASTIC and all port docking was efficient & so accessible. Often we were able to come back to the ship for More lunch & and a rest before launching forth again. What a wonderful way to see the world. Multiple air trips have lost their appeal for us now! Less
