Rotterdam, the center of Holland
The cruiseport of Rotterdam is increasingly gaining in importance as an attractive destination for cruise passengers. We are a service-oriented, budget-friendly port providing a one-stop office at your service. The terminal is situated within the so called ‘Manhattan on the Maas’ right in the City Centre. The city has an open character and is seen as friendly; easy to reach by water, rail, road and air.
Rotterdam is a perfect geographical location for your cruise ships to visit. Cruise ships sail about 2 hours on the scenic New Waterway - without locks or air draft restrictions – to the historic cruise terminal, located in the heart of the city.
Ships can easily turn around in the front of the terminal (turning circle about 260 meters) or Waalhaven (turning circle about 400 meters). In other words the quay and terminal in Rotterdam is ready to receive the largest ships currently in, or being brought into the market.
