Now considered a classic but it's "modernist" design raised a few conservative eyebrows when it first appeared in 1959!

classic shot of a classic liner/cruise ship; nothing like those ugly floating highrises of today!
Rotterdam has returned to the Netherlands and is preserved as a floating B&B in Rotterdam there.

The tug looks like a modified Ville Class naval tug. Can you see the name on the original print?

the cute little port of vancouver welcome craft makes a nice complement to the scene! I went aboard her about this time, and my parents did a south pacific adventure on her! mrdot.

Great to see the ROTTERDAM in all her glory like that. Go see her in Rotterdam if you can, it's great!
