Review summary

My first cruise and I loved it. The MS Rotterdam is a very nice ship with hardworking crew. I love the fact that you really get the ship feeling on board. It is not that modern in comparision with the newer ships, but it is clean, well maintained and charactetistic. And that is what I am looking for. No floating hotels for me please!
