Cruise Port Rotterdam Newsletter Autumn Edition
Monday, September 30, 2019 - 10:28 by rotterdam
WELCOME to the autumn edition of the Cruise Port Rotterdam Newsletter.
With the cruise season still in full swing, we are pleased that Rotterdam continues to gain popularity among cruise ships and their passengers, a trend not interrupted in spring and autumn. We welcome the magnificent ships at Wilhelminakade, in the heart of the city, where they can be marveled at and photographed. Taking photographs is a hobby among a great many Rotterdam people. This shows that Rotterdam, too, is enjoying the revival in passenger shipping – a revival we are all proud of.
