I really wanted to try the Prinsendam while she is still under the HAL flag. Everything I heard about the passengers and the staff was spot on. Everyone was friendly and approachable. The staff was competent and always in a good mood The shops are extremely limited. Mostly jewelry and HAL branded items. My cabin steward and his helper were so very nice and accommodating. Friendly, spoke very good English, and responded to my requests with pleasant and speedy solutions to my requests.. I never get seasick --- until now. On a guarantee ocean view I was put in the absolute first cabin at the front. Even on quite moderate seas, I became ill twice! There was a lot of movement all over the ship, but much worse in my cabin. Very noisy and rough. Then there was the food. Very limited choice in the Lido.I will not miss this ship. Read Less

We didn't really care for Brazil but the cruise was first rate. This ship is wonderful and small. It didn't take me 30 minutes to walk to the front of the ship. I loved this ship and am sad we are losing it. A few weeks before the cruise we decided to upgrade to a balcony cabin. It was the best thing we could have done. We were always out on the balcony. It made our cruise so much more enjoyable. The service was top notch. Never had an issue with anything. Every staff member was kind and bent over backwards to help you. Entertainment in the show room was hit and miss. I loved the production shows. The other musicians were talented but I can only take so much flute or horn music. The comedians were clean but not very funny. The food was excellent. We ate in the dining room and it was always good. The buffet was also good. The dive in had the best burgers and fries. This was a very quiet cruise.So relaxing. No kids. No bells or whistles on this ship which was fine with us. Being 55 I think I was one of the youngest passengers on the ship. Most everyone was over 70. Wonderful cruise. Will be cruising with Holland America again. Read Less

The Prinsendam is a small ship that has the capacity of about 800 passengers. We were on board for a 28 day Amazon River Cruise and found the ship to be very well maintained. The dining room area and the Ocean bar are small, but lovely. We were on the promenade deck in and ocean view stateroom which had a walk in closet and walk in shower. We enjoyed this room because it was easy to get out on the promenade quickly when we spotted something from inside our stateroom. The room was also located close to the main dining room and only one floor up to the evening entertainment. The dining room is split into two area, one very small for those who have assigned dining times and a larger are for those who have open seating. However, within 28 days we were seated in the smaller one time and requested not to be placed there again. Just too small and lots of traffic walking through to the other section. Our food was excellent and they did an excellent job of preparing my “special orders”. I have a rare medical condition that comprises by pancreas and liver and can only have 25 grams of fat a day, but they were spot on all but two evenings. On the last evening they brought me fried shrimp! But took it back quickly when they realized what had happened. The service in both the dining room and Lido was excellent. Our cabins stewards were fabulous and the service all over the ship was beyond excellent. We went to the entertainment all but two evenings and overall thought is was descent for a super small ship. Our favorite was a band called the Ravons who one evening did a Buddy Holly review. All I can say is go and give each show a try, you can always leave if you aren’t enjoying it. We went to see a women who played a variety of flutes expecting to leave after one or two number, but stayed for her entire, amazing show. Most of the ports were great. The speaker who spoke about the Amazon, consolations and so on was excellent. I can’t say for the other two speakers because I did not go listen to them. Otherwise, most of the activities on this ship revolve around eating and sitting. We had to be creative in staying active. There were numerous tender ports, especially on the Amazon. We especially enjoyed Boca Da Valeria and Perintins on the Amazon. The embarkation and disembarkation went very well. We would go on this ship again for a shorter cruise, but it has been sold to a German company and will leave the Holland America fleet July 1, 2019. Read Less
