“A pleasant experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

This was a quite unexpected treat while visiting the docks area, Admission to the ship was easy and free. There was plenty of comfortable seating on the deck surrounding the pool,
The service was a bit slow but as the ship is used to train future ships stewards etc this is to be expected staff were friendly, food was great we had a pleasant afternoon in the sun, a tour of the ship and only had to pay for out food and drink A ship well worth visiting, full of old world charm

“Interedting experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

An interesting,well preserved old liner.You can visit the engine room,the crew and passengers berths,the ball rooms,the decks(on one of them is a pool).From the upper deck-a nice view of the city.
A part of the ship is now hotel.There are one or two restaurants,too.
Can be reached by metro(Rijnhaven station),then you can walk(about 2km) or take bus line 77.

“Sinterklaas is coming to town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

The old SS Rotterdam was known as one of the most posh passenger liners of its days. Beautifully restored, it is moored on the south side of Rotterdam. Views on the Rotterdam skyline are unique from here, especially at night. Excellent bar with live music in the weekends.

“Historic cruise ship”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

This old cruise ship, originally build as an Atlantic liner running between Rotterdam and New York, is beautifully restored. You can take different tours through different parts of the ship, or combine them in one all-in-one tour.

Tip: you can visit the lido deck free of charge to have a nice drink and enjoy the view of Rotterdam.
