The author has been in the passenger shipping industry since May 1960 and is now semi-retired, but continues and I hope that the well over 635 features on Classic Liners and Cargo-Passengers ships I have written on will continue to provide classic ship enthusiasts and continue a great deal of information and pleasure!

PLEASE NOTE:This Eight Page SS Rotterdam V Feature has been completely updated as well had five brand new pages added. However, I wish to announce that this feature is in reality a new work is also my very last ever work that I will do for ssmaritime or for any other of my sites. I have done so for reasons that may be well known to many of my regular readers. Therefore, I have now fully retired and will sit back and I am joyful with what I have achieved and I trust that you will enjoy reading the well over 620 classic liners, and other ships that are online! Thank you for your wonderful support I has been greatly appreciated!
Re the SS Rotterdam:
Thankfully The SS Rotterdam has been saved and fully restored to her original condition and she has returned to her homeport of Rotterdam Holland and today she operates as a popular Hotel and Tourist complex! This New, extended and updated feature, contains her complete history with countless new photographs, some very special brochures as well as Deck Plans and details on how she was saved from the Indian breakers yards!
Best wishes and Goodbye!
