Cruises from Rotterdam, Holland20 Feb 2012
This European city is steeped in history and culture, and vacationers wanting to mix in a cruise while on holiday will find no shortage of departures from this exciting departure port.
Rotterdam is one of the world's busiest commercial seaports on the planet, and although the primary sea traffic is industrial in nature, there are several wonderful cruises out of Rotterdam including those with destinations in the Western Mediterranean and Northern Europe.
Holland America operates the majority of these vacation packages, with the most popular being rather long in duration, ranging from 7-28 days. The longest is aboard the vessel Rotterdam and takes passengers to Copenhagen, Oslo, Bergen, the Shetland Islands, Scotland (Edinburgh) and eastward to Stockholm, Helsinki and St. Petersburg.
Shorter Mediterranean cruises offer passengers the opportunity to explore the cities of Lisbon, Portugal, the Canary Islands and Casablanca, Morocco.
There are also several longer cruises that travel east through the Strait of Gibraltar and make stops in Barcelona, the port city of Civitavecchia near Rome, Italy, and return by way of Cadiz and Almeria, Spain.
