Setting sail from Rotterdam

One of the great ports of Europe, Rotterdam's impressive skyline can be seen from far and wide. With great architecture both ancient and modern, fantastic exhibition and concert halls, theatres, pretty galleries and numerous museums, there is so much to do when you stay here. Excellent restaurants reflect global influences, and in this metropolitan city there is also a great night life. During the day, the shopping is excellent, and countless small harbours are situated along the banks of Rotterdam's river, the Maas, each with its own unique character.

Our tip

Visit the historic and picturesque area of Delfshaven, exploring the tiny courtyards and buildings laced with canals. The Pilgrim Fathers fled England to stay here before continuing to North America.
