Sail Date: Dec 2022

After enduring HA’s Rotterdam on one of its last voyages in late 2019, we eagerly booked a 10-day southern Caribbean trip for this December on its namesake successor.

I’ve seen lots of reviews of the ship that you can access on these boards, and won’t bore you with redundant insights here. Will, however, say that the almost-new Rotterdam is an enormous upgrade — sleek, understated, and truly a credit to the company’s design philosophy. It’s just beautiful. The Neptune Suite, our standard, is a bit smaller but functionally superior. Well worth the $ upgrade if you’re into that level of service.

Just one high, and one low. They’re related, so I’ll start with the low.

See above. Sleek, comfortable, efficient.
