  3. Prinsendam
The itinerary for this cruise was excellent but I would recommend organising your own tours as the organised tours are very over priced. The staterooms are comfortable and the walk in wardrobe is great. The food was disappointing and bland with the exception of Caneletto which you have to pay for. The standard of food in the dining room was poor and the wines very overpriced. You have to pay for bottles water and soft drinks or else take glasses of water or cordial from the Lido to your room. There is a service charge on everything including bottled water and the tip is added onto your bill which is subsidising salaries rather than rewarding good service. I would prefer to pay for my cruise up front and other cruise lines offer this.
