Examine the impressive navigational equipment in the chart room, before heading to the stern and upper sports decks for breathtaking views of Rotterdam and beyond.

The highlight of the tour is the visit to the captains cabin. Here, enjoy a glimpse of what life was like on this spectacular vessel in bygone days. Be sure to also visit the Experience Center and be transported from Rotterdam to New York in just a few minutes with a short video about the ships voyages. Your tour concludes on deck.

Meet your guide on the SS Rotterdams main deck to start your tour. As you descend into the belly of the ship, listen to your guide as they tell interesting stories from the ships 41 years of service. Weave your way through the glistening labyrinth of pipes, meters and boilers, and imagine what daily life was like for the ships many crew members.

Examine the impressive engine equipment, from the ship stabilizers to the evaporation and boilers holds, before getting to grips with the commanding control panels many levers and switches in the radio room. Then, explore replicas of the original passenger rooms and other crew areas. Your tour then finishes back on the main deck.

SS Rotterdam Tour: Above- and Below-Deck (1.5 hours)
Alternatively, you can experience both tours with the 1.5-hour SS Rotterdam above- and below-deck exploration tour.

After your guided tour, perhaps refuel at one of the ships restaurants (own expense). In summer, maybe relax in a deck chair and submerge your feet in the pool as you enjoy a drink and bite to eat at Lido. On cooler evenings, head to the Club Room to enjoy gourmet food cooked by top chefs, or perhaps indulge in a cocktail at the wave-shaped Ocean Bar.
