Culinary arts was good.  Service was excellent.  Intimacy was best because of size of ship and lower number of people.  Activities were of the right level.  Able to relax and decompress.

The Antarctic 4 days was the best part of the cruise, followed by the Amazon. I highly recommend this cruise. The ports of call are varied and the excursions offered are quite varied and there is one to suit everyone's taste.

Excellent travel experience

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

There were several best parts to the holiday cruise. The itinerary was very good because we visited a number of smaller and less traveled islands. The service and food were excellent on the ship. All of the shore excursions were purchased through HAL and were well worth the money. The Prinsendam is a small ship by today's standards, but we found it to be a better experience than the bigger options. Due to the age of the ship, the furnishings are somewhat worn and should be replaced. We never felt crowded or rushed and fellow passengers tended to be more polite than we have experienced in the past.

Exploring the Wild Amazon

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Exploring the Amazon was the best part of this cruise. Becoming familiar with the flora and fauna was truly once in a lifetime experience. Walking through the tropical rain forest, seeing the beautiful flowering trees and experiencing the antics of the manatees and pink dolphins was a never ending source of amazement.To listen to Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in the resplendent Manaus Opera house was a truly unique musical experience, one that I will remember for a long time. Meeting the local residents along the river was a revealing moment. The smells and sounds of the great river were totally outstanding and could not have been imagined without being there.Happy

I enjoyed our trip to Santarem when we went Piranha fishing. I caught  white piranha which is about 3 1/2 inches big. All the ports are really nice and easy to get in and out the ports.

If you sail on this vessel, even if you go to warm climate, bring a winter coat, they keep the public areas very cold, 60 degrees. The vessel is old and dated.

Don't over pack and if you bring your own DVD's make sure they are not Blu Ray and will play on older devices.
