My fiancee and I stayed at this location between 26th and 28th April 2012. We upgraded to a superior room which was quite large and had two portholes which allowed plenty of light to enter. The room had facilities such as a coffee machine, hair dryer and iron. The beds were very comfortable and the room was very nicely decorated.
On our first night, we had a meal on board the ship, which was excellent, having had steak which was cooked to perfection for both our tastes. We had earlier reserved the table and had asked for a table by the window. The lady in charge ensured that this took place even though it was busy that night.
Although it was disappointing that we could not tour the ship without having to pay extra, we were still allowed outside on the stern and took some great photographs and film footage.
Although the ship is away from the city centre, the ship do provide a free shuttle service to the nearest metro station and there is also a bus service that you can use near to the ship. This service did take us to the Ahoy centre which was the main reason to stay at this location.Next to the ship is a water taxi service which we did not use . We did walk to the metro station which took around 20 minutes and would be ideal on a nice day as you pass other large boats moored nearby.
We also took the opportunity to visit the centre of Rotterdam as well as Amsterdam, using the metro and train service which are all easy to use and are accesable.
The only reason that we have not classed this as excellent is that on our last night a door was constantly banging somewhere below our room which did disturb the sleep pattern. We should have mentioned this as it was happening however we chose to leave this until we checked out.
Also they had no menus or documentaion in the room which was printed in English, however the staff were very friendly and helpful.Apart from that, we can not fault the stay on this ship.
If you want somewhere different to stay and have great photographs to remember by, then this is the place to be.
