Whilst I know this was mainly a ferry, I know that off season she operated as a cruise ship. Therefore this was the very first cruise ship that I ever saw - and she taught me a lesson. Never pack your camera when travelling but keep it with you at all times. It was the summer of 1966 and I was aboard one of the pre-war Zeeland ferries, either the Beatrix or the Emma coming into Harwich. I looked out of the window and there was the most perfect view of this lovely blue-hulled ship approaching, and my camera was in my suitcase!! Anyone know what month Prins Hamlet entered service? She can only have been a few months old when I saw her.
