Prinsendam is one ship I MUST cruise on someday; I love its size and history . . . .and it just has such beautiful lines.

Yes, as the Royal Viking Sun she was one of the highest rated cruise ships in the world for many years. Lisa is aboard right now and I can't wait to hear her impressions of the ship.

I do hope this doesn't ruin the lines of this beautiful ship. Other changes are planned that are, IMO, much needed given the ship's many cool weather itineraries: enclosing the outside seating area attached to the Lido and putting a retractable roof over the midships swimming pool. This is according to several crew members we spoke with last week.

We arrived home last night, and I'll post some comments later today once I unpack my journal. Rick, I think you'd like the ship very much. She's clearly late-1980s era (single level show lounge, dining room, and main lobby, for instance), although decor is up-to date. HAL has also embraced her history as Royal Viking Sun by retaining artwork and other items from those earlier days.
