Explorer's Lounge is a comfortable lounge where drinks are served though there is no bar, per se. Every evening after dinner, a trio plays classical music. Lovely.

Prinsendam is actually HAL's oldest ship though they did not build her and she has not been in the fleet as long as Statendam. Royal Viking build her as Royal Viking Sun. She then became Seabourn Sun and ultimately HAL's Prinsendam.

I just reread this post and realize I didn't mention that the Signature Class ships, Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam, have a bar in the Explorer's Lounge. The bars there actually are nice and seem underused. If you're on a Signature Class ship, check it out.

None of the Explorer's Lounges on any of the other HAL ships have an actual bar but are cocktail table seating only.
