Editor's note: This ship is no longer part of the Holland America fleet. It has been replaced by a new ship (also Rotterdam), which set sail in October 2021.
Holland America Line’s Rotterdam is the sixth ship to bear this name, and there are many links with the previous and highly popular predecessors. So what's new here? The ship’s somewhat higher speed allows for more wide-ranging itineraries in Europe, Asia, and North America, drawing a great mixture of nationalities.
