This great old cruiseship is an tourist attraction in Rotterdam. You can sleep in one of the cabins as it is an hotel now. I just took the tour and that was a very nice daytrip for me as a local. The ship had may have cost to much to save from the scrapyard, but i believe it is a... More

The SS Rotterdam is well known by many Americans who cruised her during her active life. She is now permanently moored in own of the harbors and can be visited. Be sure to take the tour. There are two restaurants the Lido and the Captains room. The latter is a bit more formal but does not have a view on... More

Family Day on the deck with the wading pool was very relaxing. Service was fast and food was good. It's a small place and yet the turn-over was good enough to accommodate many groups.

Just spent two days on the ss Rotterdam, the old steamliner (1959) that connected Rotterdam with New York. Nowadays this beautiful old lady is a hotel in which you can relive the old romantic cruising days and yet you do not move an inch, cause the ship never leaves the quay. All the staff, both in the hotel and the... More

Took guided tour when staying on board. Very interesting story of the history of the vessel from her cruising days through refit to present day. Our guide sailed with ship and was involved in the transformation to the hotel that she is today. Apparently the vessel was completely stripped out (including removal of all asbestos which I believe was time... More

When I went there, I took water taxi and went for a lunch in really sunny and warm summer day. On the ship, food was nice, enough for lunch, nothing spectacular. But interesting part is that there you get a feeling like you are in a vacation, swimming pool in the middle with people enjoying time and sunbathing while you... More

In the news it started all wrong, the lost for real estate corporation Woonbron, the asbestos on the ship in Gdansk. But in contradiction: what magnificent to visit and be guest (even for some hours) on this ship with friendly and relaxed employees. We were even welcomed at the entrance of the ship and right away got some facts/explanation, we... More

You have to be persistent, because the nagivation leads you through an odd and what could even be considered dodgy area. But there it is, the big ship paid for by the Dutch taxpayers! Parking just in front, always nice, paid for, less nice. We went in with the aim to find the rooftrop terrace to have a drink with... More
