The year 2014 will start off nicely for the city of Rotterdam. In January it will welcome the new Norwegian Getaway of the Norwegian Cruise Line. Throughout the season ships will be visiting on a regular basis, including those of the Princess Cruises and the Holland America Line. In October Oasis of the Seas will – as is customary in Rotterdam – spectacularly arrive at the cruise terminal in the heart of the city. After that it will be on its way to the Keppel-Verolme shipyard for maintenance. And back again at the terminal to welcome 6,000 new passengers onboard. In 2015, Aida Cruises will be calling at Rotterdam quite a number of times (29). In fact, in 2016 it will visit the city on a weekly basis, overnight too. Passengers will be able to get on and off in Rotterdam, perhaps to spend a delightful week in this part of the Netherlands. To taste the city’s welcoming atmosphere, international cuisine, interesting sights and a lot of exciting events and music festivals.
