If it hadn't rained at the gardens we could have seen more; but again tightly scheduled.; no chance given to have anything to eat anywhere
5 out of 5
Went to Christmas House in Drobak and then had a short city tour; guide was very good and willing to go beyond the prescribe itinerary to accomodate visitor's request
Don't Miss: Drobak and the sculpture garden
1 out of 5
No time given for exploration; very tightly scheduled tour of interest to the guide. Saw only the highlights of the city; no meals served on tour
Don't Miss: Ask the tour guide

Pros: Food was good; crew was polite; room was adequate

Cons: 90% of the passengers were Dutch and non English speaking; the ship catered to their language in most presentations; tours were too tightly scheduled and only three days were spend ashore.

Recommends Rotterdam? Yes!
