Rotterdam departure

We soon passed our ship's predecessor, Rotterdam V, which was launched in 1958. The ship was a mainstay of Holland America Line's transatlantic service from 1959 to 1969, when it became a HAL cruise ship until 1997.

After a short stint as the Rembrandt of Premier Cruises, the ship was acquired by a subsidiary of its original Dutch builders and renamed ss Rotterdam. When we took these photos in July, 2009, ss Rotterdam was undergoing restoration work for its new role as a permanently-moored museum ship and floating hotel.
