Enjoyable cruise!

Sail Date: October 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is an older one and is the smallest of the Holland America line. We found it to be in need of refurbishment. The best part of the cruise is the service received from the Holland America staff. Also, the food was great.

Pros: The crew\, the food and the ports of call

Cons: The size of the ship (too small)

Recommends Prinsendam? No.

Ship Quality
The carpets in the deck 5 cabins and corridors really need to be replaced. There was a musty\, moldy smell in the hallway as well as in the bathroom cabin.
Food and Dining
The food was excellent and the convenience of dining times was great.
Cabin / Stateroom
The size of the stateroom was adequate. The carpet should have been cleaner (actually it needs to be replaced).
Service and Staff
The staff quality is fantastic. Holland America has a great crew and staff.
Entertainment was not that great.
