Prinsendam

September 2015 - Prinsendam to Europe - Mediterranean

Magical Experience for Rather Novice Cruisers

This was only our second ocean cruise, the first being Alaska also with HAL. From stepping onboard in Barcelona to disembarking in Athens, every moment exceeded our expectations. We loved our veranda suite with the balcony which we did use on sunny days. The ports of call were all really fascinating and the shore excursions, while expensive were good value with excellent tour guides. We enjoyed eating in Pinnacle Grill and Canaletto. The evening at Le Cirque was amazing...both food and service were outstanding.

My husband became seriously ill mid-way through the cruise with a non-ship related infection. The care he received from the ship's medical staff was beyond what we could have imagined on a ship. The doctor quickly diagnosed the problem and started him on medication. What could have turned into a medical emergency was headed off by the medical staff's knowledge and skill. Not only that, but they were so caring and kind. We will always be grateful.

We look forward to cruising on the Prinsendam again, although this year we'll be checking out the Maasdam.

Catrinatravels's Tips

Barcelona, Spain - Don't miss the embarkation party on the Lido deck. Such a good time as we sailed away from Barcelona.
Prinsendam Prinsendam - If they offer a Scotch tasting evening, go! We had a terrific time. The host was so entertaining and so were the other guests. Lots of fun and good tasting!
