Since 2008 she is a must-see for every visitor to the city of Rotterdam, Netherlands. She is the ss Rotterdam, the former flagship of Holland America Line (not to be confused with the present-day ms Rotterdam). When she entered service in 1959, she was considered the most advanced passenger liner of her time. With her streamlined profile and innovative interiors, she quickly became very popular on the Rotterdam to New York service. When transatlantic business dwindled, she was used exclusively for cruises. Rotterdam remained in the Holland America fleet for almost 40 years. She was sold to Premier Cruises in 1997 who renamed her Rembrandt. Her Premier career was short lived and the ship was laid up in Norfolk in 2000. She was saved from oblivion when she was restored to former glory under her original name and rebuilt as hotel ship. On August 4, 2008, Rotterdam triumphantly returned to her home port and a good week later her doors opened to the first hotel guests. ShipParade correspondent Rui Agostinho stayed on board in November, 2016. His photos shows that Rotterdam, at age 57, looks as good as ever.
