I made a special trip to Rotterdam in order to spend a night aboard this ship, which was thoroughly worthwhile, as I am a regular cruiser on Holland America Lines newer ships. I had a beautiful executive room on the Boat Deck with excellent views over the bow. I took a ships tour, which although it was conducted in Dutch,...

Great visit to steamship. In the Tour are included the amazing engineroom and several lounges. The class of the old restaurants and bars is amazing in the early sixties style. The Food in the restaurants is excellent

Unfortunately due to the season I was not able to swim in the pool, but it was the first time when I stayed in the room of a real ship. The rooms (one and a half, which is really rare for the hotels) equipped with refillable nespresso machines are relatively huge and very comfortable. You can buy diverse tour packages...

Had a birthday brunch on sunday, service was poor and mot quit value or money. Ship is beautifull and her employees are trying hard to make you feel comfortable... Beter to visit the ship and take the Tour and enjoy your meals and drinkt elsewhere.

We went to the SS Rotterdam for a drink and a snack with family back in September. It was a beautiful sunny day and lovely to sit outside on the deck. From the deck there are great views across the river. Not forgetting the boat itself, it is steeped in history and well worth a visit.

Had a lovely stay on the ship! I expected not to have much comfort in the rooms but it was actually very nice and there was everything you needed. Everything was nice and clean and the service was exceptional. Very pleased with my stay!

This lovely and unique hotel brings back memories of the era of the great ocean liners. The ship is restored to its vintage days and is well worth a visit. The tours of the ship include everything from the bridge to the engineering spaces. The 10 minute video of a crossing to New York is very interesting. My stateroom on...

In december 2015 we spent two days and one night on board the ss Rotterdam, a former ocean liner / cruiseship. The ship still has the grandeur of an ocean liner taking people across the Atlantic Ocean. It let's you experience - at least a bit - what it must have been to travel between continents before planes took over....
