Originally, the ship sailed to New York. But nowadays the cruise ship SS Rotterdam (from the Holland-America Line) is permanently moored in Rotterdam. So now, you can enjoy yourself at the terrace by the pool or in one of the other restaurants. They maintained the authentic atmosphere on the ship. They’ve, for example, retained the swimming pool in the middle of the Lido terrace. In the pool you can paddle while enjoying the sun and the kids can play in it (it’s only 40 cm deep).
Like if you’re on a cruise
While you enjoy the wonderful summer weather as you are drinking something fresh on the terrace, you can look out over the river Maas and the skyline of Rotterdam. On the Lido terrace you don’t actually feel like you’re in the city. The decor, the sound of the swimming pool and the sun give you a kind of holiday feeling as if you’re really on a cruise.
The SS Rotterdam is therefore an ideal place in the city to celebrate the holiday with the kids! The terrace and the restaurants are quite accessible, but if you really want a tour on board then there’s a fee required.
The SS Rotterdam is located at the 3E Katendrechtsehoofd 25 in Rotterdam. The ship is easy to reach by car and offers parking facilities. Or make it a fun day by taking a Water taxi!
