The perfectly well preserved ship is an attraction already from the outside not to mention the inside. The ship is huge, super tidy and u can visit everywhere A real time travel in the past. There are wonderful volunteers here who seem to know everything about the history of the ship. I'll never forget this visit. Thank you!

I had a vegeterian Risotto which was full of flavours, it was so good that I also ordered a steak (didnt plan to eat... More

This is a very interesting way to use an old cruiser. You can book a tour and explore the ship alone or guided, eat i a restaurant or stay one or more nights in the hotel. Many of the furniture is in original state so it has a nice atmosphere. I enjoyed the stay.

We visited the SS Rotterdam several times over the years. Every time it was a great experience. Sitting in the sun at the back deck, by the pool, enjoying drinks. Enjoying lunch or dinner in one of the restaurants. Taking one of the guided tours. It is always a pleasure to be there. Highly recommended!

Breakfast and parking was at our hotel package included - breakfast was good. We also did a tour of the ship (10 euro pp), to see the... More

If you are new to cruiseships it is quite nice to see how everything looks and is organised inside the steamship! There are classy rooms, used for royalties and guest rooms as well. Nice experience to sleep onboard of this ship, as they created hotel rooms in it! I recommend you to visit the ship on a sunny day, as... More

Wow, I loved this. We did the audio tour for an hour +, so interesting. The tour guides on hand in certain areas were all so friendly and explained the history of the ship in such an interesting manner. It was like stepping back in time to the 1950s. I loved the fact that you could wander around on your... More

We've been here a couple of times and the kids really enjoy it. There's a pool for a dip when it's sunny. The food is good. It's fun to have dinner somewhere different. Lots of space for the kids to run around.

We took the upper deck tour (2 hrs), cost us about 16 euros per adult and about 10 per child. Our kids are 5 and 8 and we all enjoyed it. On the tour you get to use an audio box and there are also tour guides at the main locations on the ship e.g. control room, gentlemen's bar, theater... More
