We stayed one night onboard of the SS Rotterdam and it exceeded my expectations. Sure, it was going to be special to sleep in a ship with a history but it turned out that it's very well renovated with a nice combination of modern comfort and 50s style.
All staff is very friendly and dressed in style as well.
Our standard room on the inner side of the ship was much bigger and comfortable than expected. It even had a separate sitting area, again in the style when the SS Rotterdam was sailing to New York. Breakfast is served on the Promenade deck and offered an extensive choice. If you’re spending the night in the weekend, it might be good to come early as it starts to get very busy from 9.30am onwards. The Ocean Bar tend to be very noisy & crowded during the weekend, but if you want to have drink in a quieter environment before heading to bed, try the Lido bar. During the evening, we chose to eat outside as there are plenty of restaurants at walking distance in the neighborhood of Hotel New York.
In summary: if you're in Rotterdam and want something else then the standard hotel, this is your choice.
