MS Rotterdam

 

Overview: This is quite a contemporary ship for Holland America Line, with light, bright decor. It is an extremely comfortable vessel with elegant and luxurious decorative features. But these are marred by the poor quality of dining room food and service and a lack of understanding of what it takes
