Overview

Highlights

  • Climb on board and explore a cruise liner that's ferried royalty from the Netherlands to New York in luxury
  • Admire artisanal work dating back to the post-war period as you explore the bow, the bridge, and the pilothouse
  • Go below deck and see the boiler room, where generators, turbines, and evaporators pump steam through the engines

Description

After 41 years of service, the ss Rotterdam retired in the year 2000. With decades of global exploration under her belt, the ocean liner finally retired to her home port in the Dutch harbor city.

Now, visitors can explore the biggest ocean steamer built in the Netherlands. Choose a ticket that lets you explore key areas for the crew (Sea Breeze Deluxe Tour), the engine rooms (Steam and Chrome Tour), or both (Rotterdam Complete Tour).

Commercial airways rule the travel world now, but if you wanted to travel in style back in the day, a cruise liner was the way to go. The ss Rotterdam recruited the Netherlands' finest craftsmen and for four decades, she skipped across the seas.

You can join a tour guide, or pick up and audio guide, and find out how life was like during months-long voyages for the captain, crew, and passengers. Find out what went on in the radio rooms, imagine the hard work and the screeching whistles going on below deck, and visit the highfalutin upper decks.
