Rotterdam

Being one of the most vibrant port cities in the world, situated at the heart of an area with a lot to offer. Rotterdam is the perfect start, or end, for a European cruise. Already many world-class cruise ships choose Rotterdam as their turnaround point. Cruise Port Rotterdam is very proud to be Home Port of Holland America Line in 2012.

We are a one-stop office for all matters concerning maritime and tourist services. Cruise Port Rotterdam basically offers these services to visiting cruise liners free of charge.


The historic terminal building, where people left from all over Europe with Holland America Line -just after the 2nd world war - to build a new life in USA, is modernized. The building itself houses a tourist -, shuttle- and taxi information desk. Various stands offer time-honored Dutch handicrafts such as wooden shoe making and hindeloopen painting as well as antiques, souvenirs and many more.
