Prinsendam Grand Voyage

Sail Date: January 2014
Destination: South America & Antarctica
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

We did our great adventure a year ago and have had time to reflect and take other cruises. Here are our highlights of the journey and ship.

The cabin was small but we do not spend much time in our cabin. The stewards are excellent. There was black mold in the air ducts which was a serious problem which I believe caused a chronic cough.

The grand voyage is a lot of fun

The people it attracts are great to be with - they are all over 55 and love to talk and have mature fun

The crew is outstanding including the officers

The ship is very old, had a lot of black mold in the air systems and the air flow has a problem, the front of the ship with the stage is very cold and the back is very warm

There is only fixed seating which we do not like

There are some plumbing problems - several passengers did not have hot water for 7 days

Almost everyone came down with a chronic (4-6 week) cough that was not cured with an antibiotic More - I think it is mold related to the air system

The food was only mediocre - the ice cream was always very soft and runny and the meat was tough

About half the enrichment lectures were very good - the rest were medium to very bad Less
