We have been loyal to Holland America for their great service and food. The Rotterdam is a beautiful ship, but doesn’t have the coziness of the smaller ships. The Ocean Bar is bigger in size, with a horrible wall in between the 2 sections, extremely uncomfortable sitting, with sofas that you will never hear a decent conversation because the distance between the sofa and the chairs.
Other than the Ocean Bar, there is no other place, unless you are willing to sit in a bar stool.
The dinning room is very pretty, but no lobster, if you want lobster you need to pay $20.00 extra.
The cabin was very good, on the 8th floor, which is my favorite floor to go. One floor and be by the pool , gym or The Lido. The cabin has plenty storage and drawers for your use. The bathroom is a glass enclosed shower, very comfortable.
Beautiful stops, we have done them before, we selected to go to different towns this time.
We stayed in Rotterdam for a week and traveled several cities. It was great!
