Passengers seeking the less-well trodden cruise destinations yet still appreciating great service and modern facilities should look no further than the charming Prinsendam.
This intimate, charismatic smaller cruise ship was designed for those wanting to explore the world’s most remote corners in traditional cruising elegance.
And her friendly and efficient staff, fine dining options and variety of entertainment venues mean you’ll have a fantastic time every day of your wonderful cruise holiday, whichever remarkable itinerary you choose.
Entertainment and Recreation
With far fewer passengers than on the bigger, more bustling cruise ships, the personal space you can enjoy on the Prinsendam allows for a more relaxed style of cruise holiday.
Your friendly and attentive staff will get to know you in person and develop an easy rapport with you as they tend to your every need throughout your wonderful time at sea.
And you can enjoy your days and nights just the way you like with plenty of activities and entertainment available if you want them, but lots of serene and restful spaces for the times when you merely want to unwind in stylish surroundings.
Two lovely main pool areas offer spacious decks where you can soak up the rays when the sun shines, perhaps listening to some soothing music or sipping a cocktail or two.
The ornate Greenhouse Spa, with its delightful Greco-Roman influenced decor, is the perfect place for some indulgent afternoons laying back and being pampered by expert beauticians and health therapists or steaming in a thermal suite.
Interesting activities during the day include fascinating talks about your ports of call, quizzes, fun competitions and the fantastic demonstrations of gourmet cuisine in the excellent Culinary Arts Centre.
The beautiful Crow’s Nest has large floor to ceiling windows offering amazing views out across the wide oceans and is a lovely lounge to spend a quiet hour or two sipping a drink and reading your favourite book as you literally watch the world go by.
Feeling a little more energetic? Well there’s a well-equipped gym and fitness suite as well as an al fresco jogging track and sports deck area for some friendly competition.
Evening entertainment offers a wide choice, all of a high-calibre with bars and lounges coming to life with laughter and music, from the big-stage variety productions shows in the main Showroom at Sea to classical recitals, party bands and comedy acts in other bars and lounges.
The Ocean Bar is a popular live music and dance venue and, by night, the Crow’s Nest transforms into a swish piano and dance club.
There’s also a smart casino with all your favourite gaming tables and slot machines as well as other more serene bars and lounges where you can unwind over a chat and a drink or two.
Wining & Dining
You can enjoy delicious international cuisine in traditional cruising style at set-time sittings with your fellow guests in the magnificent La Fontaine main restaurant, impeccably served by charming waiters.
Or you can be a little more flexible and opt for ‘As You Wish’ dining, just turn up to be seated any time between 5.30pm and 9pm.
There’s a more casual arrangement at the bright and spacious Lido Restaurant which offers buffet selections and made to order favourites throughout the day and a laid-back table service for dinner.
If you want to experience a more exclusive ambience for your evening meal, however, you can reserve a table at the premium dining Pinnacle Grill where there’s an exciting menu of steak and seafood specialities for you to enjoy in upmarket surroundings, an ideal choice for a special occasion.
*Selected restaurants on many ships require reservations and may carry an additional charge.
