The work is part of the line’s multi-year $535m ‘Signature of Excellence’ program.
The new staterooms, most with verandahs, were added to the aft section of the 1988-built Prinsendam. Pool deck space was enlarged, with seating added, and the ship gained a sea-view bar. Several lounges and other public areas received new carpeting, and the Wajang Theatre and Culinary Arts Center were updated with furniture and carpeting in warm, light colors.
Other standard maintenance and technical service was carried out along with upgrades of laundry and galley equipment.
Fifteen of the new staterooms are deluxe verandahs and six are standard insides. As with all Prinsendam accommodations, appointments include Mariner Dream Beds, 250-count linens, newly redesigned closet space, elegant bathrooms with Elemis amenities, flat panel televisions and DVD players.
Last week the ship embarked on a 70-day ‘South America Explorer Grand Voyage,’ to be followed by a 54-day ‘Quest of the Argonauts’ sailing round-trip from Fort Lauderdale to the Mediterranean and Black Sea.
