I had a meeting at this ship and we were offered a tour. Beautifull decoration, mostly authentic. Even a theatre was on board.

This is very good place with superb interior, restaurant, food and service. The rooms are lavish. We stayed there for 2 days. Also they arrange boat trip to places around near the dock.

If you want a special place to enjoy good food and exceptional service, visit the Club Room restaurant on board the ss Rotterdam. We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant and were simply impressed by the professional and friendly service of our waiter, Pasqualino Karg, probably one of the finest waiters your will be served by!

The SS Rotterdam is actually a diesel powered ship, rather than a classic steam ship. I have stayed there 4 times as it is now a floating hotel. Breakfast is great, and I have had dinner on the rear deck in the summer, enjoying a beautiful sunset. The ship was bought by the public housing authority of Rotterdam and converted... More

Have visited this attraction once to see around the ship but have now eaten there twice and popped in three times for tea or coffee. The ship is quite small now – by modern standards – but the tour around the ship takes in quite a lot from the bridge and Captain’s cabin down to the boiler/engine room and includes... More

Very friendly staff, great food for modest price, very special ''boat''feeling. Rooms are different in layout so one is better than the other. Everybody I saw left with a smile on their face.

very special hotel to stay for a special occasion or to go back to the 50th years. Nice bar on the deck of the ship.

A corporate 'do', so had to spend time with colleagues and hosts rather than look around the vessel. If you go I would check that other decks are open access otherwise you may as well be in any other restaurant.

A surprise weekend away full of nostalgia on the SS Rotterdam. The guided tours are well worth it. I advise to take the tour with the actual guide. These volunteers have actually sailed to NY back in the day when the Rotterdam was at its full glory. It gives an extra dimension to the tour when telling their stories in... More

I cycle through the city ended up at ss Rotterdam. Nothing too special - a fancy cruise boat used as a hotel with large areas you can visit for free. Nice to see the deck and corridors if you haven't been to one before.
