Today, April 16, Rotterdam’s cruise season started with the arrival of the ms Ryndam. In total, Rotterdam will welcome 27 cruise ships this year. The ms Rotterdam will visit 19 times and ms Ryndam will visit twice. As we all know the ms Rotterdam will be home-based in Rotterdam starting May 2. After her two visits to the home port of Rotterdam, ms Ryndam will be sailing this summer season from Dover and Amsterdam. I traditionally welcomed the ms Ryndam with flags and lights. – Bert Lamers, HABlog contributor and maritime historian living in Rotterdam
