Ship Facts: Rotterdam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Rotterdam Deck Plans
21 Day Baltic & Norwegian Fjords

As first time cruisers we couldn't have chosen a better cruise line, and such wonderful ports of call. When we arrived dockside in Rotterdam everyone was so helpful and well rehearsed, allowing us to flow through quickly and get to our cabin on board. The Rotterdam is lovely, up to date, very clean and the friendliest staff ever and can't say enough about them!

The food was incredible and whether it was the Lido or La Fontaine or other eating spots, the service was terrific and everyone friendly and helpful. We chose open seating so we could meet different people each time we went to La Fontaine and would always do the same again, as met wonderful people who were charming, interesting, and some nights we could hardly tear ourselves away from the table. As we are gay men traveling everyone was so friendly towards us, and very warm.

The ship was able to get us on and off at our ports of call splendidly, and at no time did we feel we had to wait too long, very organized. Michael the ships entertainment director was superb, as was the entertainment each night. Tammy organized where we sat in La Fontaine and although I forget his title, this man deserves great kudos for the fine job he does every day, so funny and friendly and efficient (this man certainly deserves a great raise). Ersa (works in the Lido) is another wonderful person making us all happy and loving her attention!

Can you tell yet that we loved this cruise and all its staff, because there isn't enough I can say about it. Only that I want to do more and more of these cruises and Holland America has to be the BEST!!!!!!!!!!
