Take a journey into the past and roam the decks above and under the water line like the world traveller you are. Expect to be dazzled by the stylish decorated rooms before taking time to unwind on the ship's impressive bow. The Steamship Rotterdam is the biggest oceanliner ever built in the Netherlands.

Look across the monumental bow, watch the heavy windlasses, climb up the towering bridge, check out the chart room, the radio room and visit the original captain’s cabin.

A beautiful experience. We felt very comfortable on board the SS Rotterdam. It was a great journey through time, the Stewarts on board were always very friendly, helpful and warm. They explained a lot to us about the ship. The German audio guide was also informative. In total we spent a good 4 hours on board (of course we were also out and about in the engine room) and in the end we really enjoyed the well-deserved Amstel and the delicious Bitterballen.

A day in Rotterdam with our 9-year-old grandson, including a visit to the SS R'dam. Open again the first day and what an enthusiastic staff. We enjoyed. Lots to see and experience!! Super!

Very nice experience to walk through the ship with an audio guide. Highly recommended! The people on the ship can also tell you a lot in an enthusiastic way.

Fantastic experience! Very cool to bounce over the Maas with a rib. Both the kids (9 and 7) and we enjoyed it.

Super experience to sail through the port of Rotterdam at 90 km/h. Nice skipper who knew a lot to tell.
