Having already been on a ship's visit to HAL's Rotterdam in Dover, we knew the drill and it was virtually identical, including boarding the ship later than was stated. We didn't mind though as we were already chatting to a couple of people from Bromley and had expressed interest in cruising mates that Plunky dropped into the conversation, they even wanted one our cards.

We took loads of pics but there is no point in my posting them as they would only be duplicates of those taken in Bristol- and probably not as good.

Our guided tour of the ship took about 90 minutes. We were shown lots of cabins, which for us was great as we were unable to see any on Rotterdam because she was mid cruise when she was docked at Dover.

We were really impressed with the size of all the cabins, most of which had a bath and lots of storage space. If this ship ever does an itinerary that appeals to us, we would even try an inside cabin, given that they were so big and didn't feel remotely claustraphobic.

We loved the size of the ship- perfect for us. The restaurants were nicely furnished- we particularly liked the buffet restaurant that was very light and airy.

The bars all looked very welcoming and comfortably furnished as did the library, internet, games room.

If we had to criticise, we felt that the show lounge reminded us of Adonia- i.e. the seats, table and chairs were not tiered and therefore, unless you were fairly near the front, your view of the show would be restricted.

In short, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit, especially as the threatened bad weather didn't hit the Tilbury area- in fact it was warm and sunny with just a stiff breeze.

We much preferred the feel of Prinsendam to the Rotterdam and would consider cruising on her if the price/itinerary was right.
