's Prinsendam cruise ship
is a far cry from the mega-ships so popular these days, instead providing a more boutique experience and a personal, intimate atmosphere as she cruises to faraway places.
Specs: Prinsendam at a glance
The Prinsendam carries a maximum of 835 passengers, comes to 669 feet in length and weighs 37,983 tonnes. Her top speed is 22 knots.
Accommodation: Prinsendam rooms and suites
While Prinsendam rooms aren't known for being the largest in the fleet, even the cosiest of cabins will put you at ease. Many of them have generously sized bathrooms with full length tubs; walk in closets are also common across the ship, ensuring that passengers have enough space to feel at home. Of course if you decide to splurge on a Prinsendam suite, there's far more to get excited about than just ample storage space. Neptune suite cruisers can enjoy a private verandah, floor to ceiling windows, access to the exclusive Neptune Lounge, priority dining and seating requests and much more.
