SEEKING REFUGE IN ROTTERDAM

All of our misfortune along this stormy route did allow for a surprise overnight in Rotterdam, meaning rather than just embarking guests and leaving, we had the opportunity to explore the city one day prior.  Overnights are ALWAYS welcome!  We didn’t do anything super exciting.  Just had a look around the Tuesday market, got some groceries, ogled at the strange yet famous Dutch Cube Houses, then returned to the port to have a look at the original Holland Amerika Lijn building, now occupied by the Hotel New York.

The sail-in to Rotterdam is an amazing experience.  I would highly recommend it if one can – very beautiful.  Hopefully when we disembark in May, we will have the opportunity to see what else Rotterdam has to offer. [Edit: we will now be disembarking in April in Athens so we’ll have to visit Rotterdam again another time.]
