If you visit Rotterdam and always wanted to go on a cruise but never got to it go for a night on the SS Rotterdam. The ship lies in the former Rotterdam harbour area Katendrecht and has good connections via metro trains to the the city center. It is a refurnished cruise ship that has the flavor of cruises in...

Only stayed for 1 night but great cabin. Excellent staff throughout. Nice decor in keeping with the era of this liner. Excellent bar and restaurant. Good selection on the menu and very well cooked. Very easy to access with good parking.

We hardly needed to be sold on the idea of staying overnight on the SS Rotterdam. We've stayed on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, and took the Queen Mary 2 to Europe this winter. But the SS Rotterdam is its own unique experience, partly because it is from its own era: a 1950's liner rather than an Art Deco...

I have visited the SS Rotterdam in the last days of 2016. In the beginning walking around was a little bit difficult because I didn't feel so well. I think this was caused by the soft swell of the water. I recall the friendly staff, clean room and tasteful breakfast. Unfortunately during our stay there was a lot of fog,...

It was quite a hike to my room through a maze of corridors but once inside the room I was delighted by the spacious and bright interior (I had 2 port holes) and everything was super clean. Greta to have a coffee machine and a decent mirror in the dressing area.

Well signposted and easy to find. Good parking at reasonable rates (for Rotterdam). Friendly, welcoming and informative reception staff. We were shown to our executive cabin in a very quiet (thank heavens) area of the ship. Also very kindly offered assistance with luggage on arrival. Stored our luggage next day too. The cabin was very clean, spacious and beautifully furnished...

We had a fun stay onboard the SS Rotterdam. Stayed in a deluxe room as a couple, room was large and clean. I'm guessing that the hotel wasn't very busy during our stay, but there was no noise. Breakfast buffet was included and definitely worth it. Also took an audio tour of the ship which I would recommend. Everything is...

I was so pleased! It was almost as good as a trip on the famed liner. The cabin (our room) was lovely. The restaurants were tasty and the services was awesome. The topnotch 1950s decor was breathtaking.
