Rotterdam Overview

Launched in 1997, Rotterdam VI is the sixth in a line of Holland America flagships and it shows. The first Rotterdam set sail in 1872, beginning a Holland America tradition and reputation that continued through Rotterdam V, one of the most beloved ships of all time and host to 28 world cruises.

Find a Rotterdam Cruise

Like her five classic predecessors, Rotterdam is more of a throwback to earlier cruise ships compared to most megaships built after 1995. However, with a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots and all of the modern amenities expected of a relatively large ship, the Rotterdam successfully straddles that sometimes fine line between classic and modern. Highlights of the Rotterdam experience include: some of the largest "standard" cabins afloat; a high percentage of outside cabins that feature verandahs; upscale alternative dining in the Pinnacle Grill; and the Explorations Cafe -- a library, Internet cafe and coffee bar wrapped into one popular hangout. The Rotterdam also features typical Holland America history and service. Memorabilia of the line's fabled past can be seen throughout the ship (the Dutch officers are happy to share the company's history with curious passengers). In addition, the Indonesian and Filipino staff continue the Holland America tradition of sparkling clean ships and white-gloved service.

Fellow Passengers

Though a typical Holland America and Rotterdam cruise tends to attract more mature passengers, younger travelers and families are definitely coming aboard. It all depends on the itinerary and time of year. Gentleman Hosts are typically onboard for cruises of two weeks and longer.

Holland America Rotterdam Dress Code

Seven-night cruises typically feature two formal nights, with an extra formal night for every additional five days or so on longer cruises. Men definitely tend to wear tuxedos on these nights. Semi-formal nights call for jacket, but ties are optional. Casual nights simply call for resort wear, where blue jeans and T-shirts are frowned upon by fellow passengers.

Holland America Rotterdam Gratuity

The automatic tip for passengers staying in interior, oceanview and verandah cabins is $13.50 per person, per day. Passengers in suites will be charged $15 per person, per day.

Get to know who you’ll be sailing with

At Alibaba's Shanghai restaurant, forget everything you were taught about having your phone out at the table — you'll need it to call the robots that serve you.

Fresh seafood restaurant Robot.He is located in Alibaba's Hema Supermarket, and a combination of conveyor belts, a robotic arm, and mobile carts on waist-high counters handle almost all of the waitstaff 'legwork.' They're guided by a software system that uses customer-submitted QR codes to figure out seating, ordering, and payment, via the Hema app.

But it isn't as anti-social as it sounds: As the customer walks around the supermarket choosing their fresh seafood meal, humans are there to do what they do best — interact, assist, and of course, cook. By taking out the labor cost of food runners and waiters and keeping some crucial human employees, Alibaba hopes to make its restaurant more cost-efficient. The result is a fascinating and interactive dining experience.

Here's a look at the way an order is placed at Robot.He — the restaurant where diners are served almost entirely by robots:

When a customer arrives, they're still greeted by a host or hostess.

Staff is available to walk them through the steps the first time around.
