This Saturday, October 15, the Holland America Line is officially 150 years old! This means that on this day 150 years ago, the ship Rotterdam I made its first crossing from Rotterdam to New York.
A historical event that we like celebrate. Therefore, on Saturday October 15, the Rotterdam VII will depart at 6:00 PM to make another trip to the other side of the ocean. Will you come and wave them goodbye at the Wilhelminapier?
It will be a festive day. The programme starts at 11:00, with activities taking place throughout the day. For example, a Frank Sinatra impersonator will perform, in the afternoon you can take photos with ships from the past at the pop-up photo studio, historic ships from the Maritime Museum sail on the Nieuwe Waterweg and of course we wave the Rotterdam VII goodbye.
It promises to be a festive day in which we can immerse ourselves in the history of the Holland America Line. Will we see you tomorrow at the Wilhelminapier?
