Bow and stern decks are a throwback to earlier ship design

The ms Prinsendam is a classic little liner that stands apart from the crowd in this age of mega ships. The ship is a throwback in all the best ways.

ms Prinsendam OVERVIEW

Nostalgia fans will fall in love with Holland America Line's ms Prinsendam, a 25-year-old cruise ship with a gorgeous profile cut with tiered decks. Built in 1988 as the Royal Viking Sun, the ship changed hands a few times over the years and joined the Holland America fleet in 2002 when it was renovated.

Enjoy a taste of the past along with modern touches like alternative dining venues, cabin balconies and Holland America Line's popular Explorations Café library.
