                            Jan-Olav: Thanks for the views of the PRINSENDAM. Bow damage looks similar to damage that occurred on the RV STAR many years ago due to heavy seas. Friends that have seen the PRINSENDAM recently indicated her up keep was lacking. What 's your opinion? Inspite of the new cabins aft, she still is a svelte and attractive ship. My wife and I will be on board her in August.

                              She does look like a wonderful ship: but I do miss her as the Royal Viking Sun, with a white hull and with the red eagle in the funnel.

                              Maintenance is probably OK, as far as I can see, but I also notice in the two images below a lot of rust at the edge of the bow (caused by the passing of heaving line over the edges), and especially under and around the bridge wing. Though, it is only exterior, it's still a far cry from Crystal standard.

                                Very nice photos Pakarang, thank you. Overall and from afar she still looks good - but up close, well, the tip of her bow is a mess. And as for her aft appearance at the hands of HAL/Carnival; that's horrendous!!

                                I miss the RVL livery and eagle!!
