As the sixth ship to bear the name, the flagship ms Rotterdam is the standard-bearer for our Atlantic fleet of five-star cruise ships. The first Rotterdam set sail in 1872, beginning a Holland America tradition and reputation that continued through the Rotterdam V, one of the most beloved ships of all time. In the grand tradition of the Rotterdam ships, fascinating Holland America memorabilia can be found throughout the ship, such as specially commissioned works of art ranging from oil paintings, to sculptures, to textile designs and much more. The ms Rotterdam completed all Signature of Excellence enhancements to her public rooms and staterooms in Spring 2005.
The ms Rotterdam ensures you the ultimate onboard experience with her graceful combination of classic cruise ship features and state-of-the-art amenities. Fine woods, exquisite art and antiques, larger staterooms, and a world-class spa and fitness center are only a few of the features that will make the memories of your Holland America cruise vacation unforgettable.
