Wow! That thing is huge! It's like a floating high rise building. I wouldn't want to keep that monster on course with a strong cross wind. Neat captures and thanks for sharing.

Cheers

Wow Rob, what magnificent images!
How things have changed - both the ships and the Wilhelminakade - from when I was a kid.
It used to be a great sight to see both the "Rotterdam" and the "Nieuw Amsterdam" in port at the same time.
Nice to see that the old HAL main office building is still standing - a bit of nostalgia...

Groet,

The HAL building is nowadays Hotel New York.a nice hotel-restaurant with the grandeur of the `old days` When i may believe my sister, it even have its own ghost.The SS Rotterdam is bount to be back in Rotterdam hopefully in september this year.It find its place in the Maashaven at the other side of the maastunnel. Serving as hotel and conferrence centre.

:smile: I never lived there Rob, but visited often.
I was born and raised in Leiden.
I met a Canadian girl, packed up and moved here in 1971 at age 23 (crazy how easy life is at that age :smile:).
I do get back frequently, especially to visit with my brothers and sisters.

That ship is amazing. How many years does it take to build such a thing? How often does it sail and where does it go?

It looks far bigger than that in the photos. I'd have guessed half as big as an aircraft carrier.
