Holland America Line's Prinsendam remains one of my favourite ships in terms of exterior design. So here's some more photos of her, taken as she passes through the Kustaanmiekka strait on the afternoon of 27 August 2015. For a brief history of the ship, see this enty on her. And as per the usual, click on the images to see the ship in larger size.

In addition to the ship herself looking great, the black-hulled livery rather superb.
After complimenting her looks, I have to say the additions to her aft superstucture do not improve her looks at all.
