Prinsendam Cabins

Nowadays, most cabins are built at a factory and slotted in at the shipyard, resulting in identical accommodations across ships, fleets and even cruise lines. Prinsendam is unique in that its cabins aren't pre-fabricated -- and so some staterooms are irregularly shaped. Prinsendam does boast the usual range of staterooms and suites: inside, outside and verandah categories are represented, all typically a bit smaller than those on the line's newer ships.

The ship has a 38 percent ratio of cabins with balconies, which is a low number these days, but it's important to note that Prinsendam was built a good decade before balconies became a common feature. If you prefer balcony cabins, it's best to book early, as staterooms with verandahs sell out quickly.

Many cabin categories on the Prinsendam feature walk-in closets. And, a good number of even the smallest-sized cabins have generous bathrooms, with full-length tubs, upgraded fixtures and color schemes. Another nice touch: The line offers single cabins, which means passengers traveling solo are not forced to book a double stateroom (and pay the extra surcharge).

Suites, of course, offer additional amenities, including separate sleeping and living areas, curved sofas with large coffee tables, and longer verandahs. The bathrooms in Superior Verandah Suites encompass two areas connected by a door; one side contains a large tub and sink, the other a toilet and sink. This ingenious design certainly eases the "getting ready for dinner" rush. Holland America has built some special garden villa cabins out onto the Promenade's Aft Deck; these "lanai" cabins have semiprivate terraces, surrounded by glass. Passengers who book these cabins have sole use of this particular aft area's amenities, which include tables for al fresco dining and a whirlpool.

On this ship, it really does pay to splurge on more expensive accommodations. Higher priced digs come with use of the Neptune Lounge, which occupies a lovely space, featuring stained glass insets -- not to mention all-day coffee, tea and snack services; newspapers; a private library with books and games; and an excellent selection of Lonely Planet guidebooks. The Neptune Lounge also has its own verandah -- it runs right up to the edge of the bridge.

We chose this cabin for its Lower Promenade Deck location; steps from outside and on the same deck as the Pinnacle Grill and La Fontaine Dining Rooms, as well as the popular Ocean Bar. ... Read more

Nice size, but the widows was pitted, paint streaked and possibly had a blown seal, so the view out was not as good as it should have been. The walk-in closet and wonderful bathroom, with tub were appreciated. ... Read more

Excellent Cabin! This one is down low and in the middle of the ship. It minimizes the "Motion of the Ocean". We chose it for our Transatlantic cruise and are glad we did! The closet is superb, as is the bathroom. In fact, everything ... Read more
