Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2016
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Superior Verandah Suite

We chose this cruise new. it was RT from Ft. Lauderdale and had many sea days.We usually cruise Seaboard and I must admit ,I was very apprehensive about Prinsenda. A friend had cautioned me against booking a smaller cain(no hot water,leaks from above,tiny cabin) so we opted for a Signature suite on deck 10.....It was the best move we could have made!!! Not only was the suite wonderful...2 sinks,tub/shower,walk-in closet,large veranda and perfectly placed TV,but the service was superb.Our cabin steward,Henky and Desmoond were attentive,efficient and discreet. Most of all,the food was absolutely perfect! The waiters,busboys and maitre de,Iggy were friendly,efficient and marvelous. As I said before,having normally cruised on Seaboard,I would rate Prinsendam as just as good as Seaboard! We will certainly return!!!!! Please do schedule more cruises out of US ports and consider a world cruise on Prinsendam as the Amsterdam doesn't have suites with 2 sinks.(important to us). Elmar59

Cabin SY 036

Perfect!!! Spacious,comfortable and well furnished.Would suggest 2 chaises instead of chair and ottoman on veranda.Also 2 side tables for our cocktails....

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Went to Cordoba...very knowledgeable guide...about half he price of HAL's tours

Malta (Valletta)

Took the cable car up to a scenic town high above Valleta. Stopped at quaint area with a small tavern.Great boutique and cafe.


Would have liked much more time in Oia to shop....marvelous boutiques and cafes.


Went ashore on our own.Walked around on our own...ship's free shuttle was excellent!!!

Madeira (Funchal)

Dubrovnik and Kotor were 2 more special ports...beautiful medieval towns with friendly people,great food and free internet cafes!!!!
