Sail away on one of Holland America Line’s classic ships, the Rotterdam.

Cruises on board the Rotterdam

The Rotterdam is known for cruising all over the world, from the Baltic to the Caribbean, the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, the options are endless!

This ship attracts more mature well-travelled passengers. Onboard activities include wine tastings, workshops, as well as culinary and fitness classes. The dining experience on the Rotterdam begins with the two-deck ‘La Fontaine’ dining room at the rear of the ship, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a sweeping double staircase. ‘As You Wish Dining’, the Holland America Line's relatively new evening set-up has been added to the Rotterdam. This more flexible approach offers passengers a choice of traditional set-seating at dinner time or an open-seating arrangement. There are other onboard restaurants like ‘The Pinnacle Grill’ and ‘The Lido’. The Rotterdam features many bars for you to truly relax in the evening, including the ‘Ocean Bar’, ‘Crow’s Nest’ and a champagne bar.

Unwind in ‘Steiner’s Greenhouse Spa’, on the Lido Deck by the main pool or enjoy some sports on the Walking Deck.
