Avid Cruisers, can you help? Our reader can decide on a small ship that calls on Bordeaux or a newer, larger ship that calls on the Baltic. What would you recommend?
Q. We are trying to decide between MS Prinsendam‘s Bordeaux Explorer cruise in June or the MS Eurodam‘s Gem of Baltics. My husband is in Afghanistan, and we will meet in Amsterdam in June. We THINK we like the small feel of Prisendam and those ports; we KNOW we liked the Ryndam, so the Eurodam would be nice. We want time alone, but nice dinners, atmosphere, etc. Shore excursions are no problem on either trip. We have not cruised in either of the regions. So if we want rest and relaxation, which one? We are 57 and 52.
