Take a break on board the Rotterdam experiencing 14 exciting nights aboard the North Cape Cruise exploring Arctic. Your ship sails from Rotterdam with an itinerary that includes 9 ports in 2 countries before returning to Rotterdam. This particular 4 star cruise from Holland America Line has 1 forward departures, but is unfortunately sold out for this departure.

Rotterdam Overview

Until mid-July 2017 Rotterdam sails out of Rotterdam to a grand selection of ports in the UK, the Baltic Sea, Arctic Norway and Iceland. In July and August 2017 makes three crossings of the Atlantic between Rotterdam and Boston, with stops that include Iceland and Greenland, and likely include seeing the Northern Lights. A day’s scenic cruise through Prince Christian Sound in Greenland will leave you with some of the best memories of your travelling life. There are a few variations of this cruise to select from. Through September and October 7-night cruises of New England and Canada’s Maritime Provinces are very popular. From November 2017 through April 2018 Rotterdam offers 7-, 14- and 21-night cruises around the Caribbean. For the rest of 2018 Rotterdam repeats her program between the Baltic and NE America. Holland America Line arranges excellent onshore tours, and pre- and post-tour packages.


Staterooms are spacious, and include: Interior large and standard; Ocean-view with panoramic windows; Lanai, that open directly to a promenade deck but with mirrored glass doors for privacy; Spa, located near the Greenhouse Spa and Salon; and three levels of suites. Basic features include a flat-panel TV and DVD player (book your DVDs by phone), ample storage, personal safe, excellent twin/queen bedding and bath amenities, fresh fruit on request, and nightly turndown service. The décor is very pleasing and comfortable. Complimentary meals can be ordered for in-suite dining around the clock. Triple and quad cabins are available, as well as interconnecting cabins for up to six guests. Many staterooms are modified accessible and wheelchair accessible. There are no single cabins.

Food and Dining

The ship has seven formal to casual dining areas. The two-deck main Dining Room serves open-seating breakfast and lunch. For dinner chose between set-seating at first or second servings, or open seating on the upper deck. The waiting staff are friendly Indonesian and Filipino stewards. Ask for a table for 2/4/6/8. Special dietary requests can be ordered pre-cruise. One night in seven is a formal night, perhaps preceded with pre-dinner drinks, then after your meal retire to the Showroom at Sea or a musical recital. There are two alternative restaurants, best to reserve in advance: The pay extra Pinnacle Grill for steaks and seafood (and occasionally the Pinnacle – Le Cirque and Pinnacle - De Librije), and the Italian-American-influenced Canaletto (with no service charge). Ask about wine packages.


At night the Show Lounge presents Las Vegas-style revues, dancers, illusionists, comedians and variety acts. Alternatively, attend a musical recital in one of the lounges, dance to the backing of a band ensemble, watch sport in the multi-screen sports bar, or sip drinks while your request is sung by the pianist or guitarist. View recent movies in the Screening Room, unless you’d prefer to watch your choice of DVD in your cabin. Through the evening the disco and nightclub on the top deck will take you into the early hours of the morning, very inviting if the new day is a sea day and you’ve ordered breakfast in your cabin. The large casino has lots of playing options.
