Fascinating!

A journey into the mid of the previous century, with a ship that has got almost all of its old glory. Hotel, restaurant, etc. Do not miss out on the tour of the engine rooms.

The ship in itself makes a visit to any of the bars or restaurants worthwhile! It is just SO cool to wander over the decks and let your thoughts flow back to the fifties and what it must have been like! As the restaurant hires staff who are also still in school to learn to become restaurateurs, don't expect the... More

You can get guided tours on this ship (with audio gids and against an extra charge), but also can visit the restaurant on this ship. It is also a hotel so if you want to stay longer, that is possible. It a great location, especially when it is nice weather and you have the chance for sitting outside.

We walk there from the city center, a bit to long to walk, we went for the free tour, it was not very interressting, felt like we walk in a private ship.

Wonderful Hotel to spend some lovely time. Great restaurants and bars and you have the option to explore the ship but this is extra. The tour guides are located all through the ship with wonderful knowledge of this vessel.

We had a very interesting walk during our visit to the SS Rotterdam. By volunteers it is brought into a better condition again. It is also used as a hotel.

The perfectly well preserved ship is an attraction already from the outside not to mention the inside. The ship is huge, super tidy and u can visit everywhere A real time travel in the past. There are wonderful volunteers here who seem to know everything about the history of the ship. I'll never forget this visit. Thank you!

This is a very interesting way to use an old cruiser. You can book a tour and explore the ship alone or guided, eat i a restaurant or stay one or more nights in the hotel. Many of the furniture is in original state so it has a nice atmosphere. I enjoyed the stay.

We visited the SS Rotterdam several times over the years. Every time it was a great experience. Sitting in the sun at the back deck, by the pool, enjoying drinks. Enjoying lunch or dinner in one of the restaurants. Taking one of the guided tours. It is always a pleasure to be there. Highly recommended!
