  1. Question for those that have sailed on the Prinsendam in the last few months, what condition is the ship in? Mainly the cabins. I sailed on her December 2016 and at that time the cabins needed some TLC and there were in numerous cabins air conditioner issues. At that time the public areas were in fairly good condition. I have a group of family members that are looking to book the Christmas/New Year cruise. Any feed back is truly appreciated so that I can give them some guidance. Thank you Erna

    Prinsendam cabin questions

    Thank you all for your feedback, sure has helped me make up my mind. :). Will go with an outside. Erna
  3. Looking to book a cruise on the Prinsendam and have a question for previous cruisers on that ship. I have been on HAL before but never on this ship and like the idea of the smaller ship and low passenger count but was wondering about cabin location and noise. I was looking into getting a Vista Suite (balcony) on Promenade deck aft. Like cabin 217 or 215. Is there a lot of noise or other disturbance from the pool deck above?
  4. I don't believe you can compare these lines side by side. I have sailed on both a number of times and know that what I am looking for on Cunard is not what I will find on NCL. The formal nights, traditional dinning, lectures, and etc. I sailed on NCL before and after it was Freestyle and it was a totally different experience before of course. Did a number of crossing on the Norway(old France) and those are still among my favorite sailings. But I can say that in my experience the food on NCL, even in the main dinning rooms is better than the food on Cunard. Can not complain about service on NCL either.

    Using Cunard to post letters

    I mailed my Christmas card from the ship two years ago. They were in the box day before we arrived in NYC and I thought they were suppose to be mailed at that port at that time. I got home right after New Years and none of the card had been received. In July I received messages from various people that they had just received my cards. So the cards sat somewhere on the ship for all those months. :confused:

    Anybody receive the sweepstakes for Cunard

    I didn't receive an email from them but Cunard posted it on their Facebook page.

    Hi Brigitte, Cruise over all was good. Snow sure was different. All in all I would not complain as I only had a five hour flight delay and not a canceled one. Wish I could have stayed on board for the crossing back. Erna

    I was also surprised when they handed the card back to me on Friday. On the 22nd at the end of my first part they kept it.

    Better be quiet in the Library

    I think I know who you are all referring to also. He waltzed into the Queens Room every night. But if he said he was in the Grills he must think the Britannia was one of the Grills as he was sitting in the main dining room near my table.
