About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
The second ship in Holland America Line’s history to bear the name, Prinsendam includes many of the features found on her newer, larger fleetmates and offers classic-style cruises to far-flung, exotic ports with all the contemporary conveniences expected by today’s travelers. She can be found on Grand Voyages from the Mediterranean to South America and even on occasional sailings in the Caribbean.
Alongside her newer fleetmates, Prinsendam appears positively diminutive. Launched in 1988 and originally christened Royal Viking Sun for the now-defunct Royal Viking Line, the luxury ship subsequently sailed as Seabourn Cruise Line's Seabourn Sun before joining Holland America Line in 2002. Extensive renovations added signature Holland America Line features to the boutique-style Prinsendam. Artwork, antiques, and Signature of Excellence elements such as a Culinary Arts Center and upgraded cabin amenities have now made their way on board.
Originally designed for lengthy worldwide cruising, Holland America has dubbed Prinsendam the "Elegant Explorer," and filled her interiors with classic and comfortable public rooms. A traditional 360-degree promenade deck floored in teak and lined with cushioned deck chairs encircles Lower promenade deck.
