Happy 60th Birthday to the Rotterdam - what a lovely history she has to celebrate!

Recommended Posts

The SS Rotterdam V is about to celebrate her 60th birthday on September 3rd.

 

She serves as a hotel on the water in Rotterdam and IF I could be in Rotterdam I would love to be there.  

 

Nice to see a ship that is 60 years old (and she was a beautiful ship) still preserved and loved ❤️ 

a bit of history - https://ssrotterdam.com/who-are-we/history/

I did sail on her =- a very long time ago.  

 

Fabulous ship and crew.

Sadly, although it was in my plans to stay on her in Rotterdam, it just didn’t work  as we decided to go to Paris but I did get a peak at our pretty lady 😄 before we went.

I would join the festivities if I was in Rotterdam. I did sail on one of the Rotterdam's, out of New York in fall of 1980.

I never sailed her but I have toured her in Rotterdam. She's a very impressive lady.
