Excellence at sea

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Prinsendam | Sail Date: Aug 15, 2011

This is a relatively small ship and it tends to show its age. But the crew provides excellent service and the food is excellently prepared and presented. I would definitely cruise on this ship again.

Nice cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Prinsendam | Sail Date: Jul 11, 2011

We enjoyed the stage shows. The dining room meals were very good. The ship internet service need improving. The stateroom was nice & the room stewards were very good. The Captian , Tim Roberts, was unusally friendly with the guest.

Holland America Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Prinsendam | Sail Date: Jul 09, 2010

The ship was nice, but old. Some of the details were not up to the level of other cruise liners I have been on. For example, the shower had a cheap soap dish that was not stable. Also, the ship was small and there was not much choice in entertainment, although the entertainment was very good. In addition, there were not many restaurant/meal options like on larger ships.

Very poor for the money.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Prinsendam | Sail Date: Dec 19, 2008

The service was very bad. The lido dining room was very dirty. Every table that I sat to eat was dirty (every day!!). No one filled water glasses or cleared tables. I had to get most of my drinks myself (including the Lido deck bar). The other restaurants had good service, but the food just average. There was poor entertainment and no music on deck. They ran out of syrup and butter on many days and ran out of the beer that I drink and had no tomato juice when I asked for a bloodymary. The coffee bar was a joke the quality and service was unbelievably poor. We were not told that the average age on this ship was about 75 to 80 years old. I'm fifty years old and was one of the youngest people aboard. Very boring cruise. Our room was good and was kept up very well. I have cruised before and been to Sandals resorts many times and this cruise on Holland America was my worst vacation. I would not recommend your cruise line.

We had a great time.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Prinsendam | Sail Date: Dec 15, 2006

The Prinsendam ship was wonderful. We had a window cabin for the first time and was real impressed with it. We were also impressed with how well the ship was maintained and clean. They went out of their way to ensure that we would not become ill. The food was also very good and the dinning room stewards were great. We would recommend this ship again and plan on taking another great cruise with Holland America. We have been on several other cruise liines and the Holland American has been the best. Just the right size. Not too big and not too small.

Good ports, ship, amenities.

Entertainment fair.

Got a great upgrade (Category F to A - verandah)

Shore excursions variable (some good, some not. some guides had poor English skills)

This is HAL's most popular ship, due to it's smaller more intimate spaces. A lot of the people on the ship have cruised on the Prinsendam in the past. The ship is a little tired looking but the spaces are still enjoyable.

Older ship - classic cruise style. I love this ship although it is older it has unique features.

On any ship consider presenting the cabin steward with a small tip right at the beginning of the cruise if you desire extra consideration such as wanting more ice in your room. You will find that the steward never forgets your needs.
