Designed expressly to explore the rare corners of the world, the ms Prinsendam accommodates less than 800 passengers, giving guests the intimate feel of a yacht with the spaciousness of a large cruise ship. Our “Elegant Explorer" is known for her long range, exotic itineraries – most notably the 100-day-plus Grand World Voyage – and her elegant, sophisticated décor. The ms Prinsendam completed all Signature of Excellence enhancements to her public rooms and staterooms in Spring 2005.
