S.S. ROTTERDAM

The Rotterdam, known as "The Grande Dame," came into service for Holland-America Line in 1959. She is the largest passenger liner ever built in the Netherlands.

The Rotterdam was the last great Dutch "ship of state", employing the finest artisans from Holland in her construction and fitting out process. With a career spanning forty years, she was also one of the most successful passenger ships of all time.  She sailed from 1959 until her final retirement in the fall of 2000.

SS Rotterdam is now a hotel and tourist attraction in her old home port of Rotterdam. The ship has largely maintained her original character and remains in good condition.  She was restored in Poland and Germany and on August 4, 2008 returned to the city of Rotterdam. After completion of the refurbishment the ship will be opened to the public.
