Welcome aboard the MPS Rotterdam

The MPS Rotterdam has been a firm favourite with Shearings river cruisers for a number of years, thanks to its perfect blend of luxury and warmth, so while your cruise will feel impressive, you’ll also find it so easy to relax as you sail along the Rhine, Moselle or Dutch Waterways. The four-deck Rotterdam is truly a ship for all seasons, with relaxing river cruises throughout spring, summer, autumn and winter – including Christmas and New Year. This popular ship fills up fast, so book early to secure your cabin.

Life on board

Step on board the inviting Rotterdam and you’ll immediately feel right at home. You’ll find most of the ship’s impressive facilities on the Lounge Deck. The stylish main lounge area is spacious, decorated in rich, warm colours, with a dance floor and offering panoramic views from which you can watch the world float by. It’s also a great place to get to you know your fellow travellers. The large Sun Deck has plenty of room for everybody. Soak up the sun from one of the loungers, or relax in the spacious sheltered area if you’d rather stay in the shade. You’ll also find an exercise bicycle to help you keep in shape while on board.

Your cruise manager will keep you entertained with on-board activities during the day, while in the evening you can sit back and relax (or get up and dance!) to the sounds of our resident musician. The Rotterdam’s team are more than just staff members – they’ll become fellow travelling companions. The crew’s spectacular farewell evening show is a highlight of any Rotterdam cruise.
