Another Milestone for Rotterdam with Float Out and Move to Outfitting Pier

Today was another milestone day for Rotterdam! The ship was officially floated out and moved to its outfitting pier with the help of three tugs where the work will continue before its July 2021 delivery. Last week Rotterdam celebrated its Coin Ceremony at the Marghera shipyard, and water was let into the dock for the first time. Today, the ship was fully floated out.
