Our cruise to the Amazon River in Brazil was a bucket list priority and our Prisendam itinerary fit the bill perfectly. Our experience on the Prisendam cruise was as expected with great service from all departments. Our cabin stewards were excellent as was in room dining services. The food was very good overall, especially the Alaska King crabs night; what a treat. We particularly appreciated the great service we experienced in the Lido deck dining area. Port of call excursions were for the most part good but we found none to be exceptional. Our best excursion was booked thru a 3rd party for our first day in Manaus, Brazil, and it was truly exceptional. Overall I would recommend this cruise and Prisendam as it is one of the few cruises available for the Amazon on a major cruise line and Holland is in our opinion one of the finest in service and value.

Cabin Review

Large Ocean-View Stateroom
Cabin H
We were vary happy with our ocean view cabin. While it had two portholes for viewing outside, and we would have preferred a full window it was fine and met our expectations.
