What was cruising like in the 1960s? See for yourself with a scroll through our latest Cruise Ship Tour, in the carousel above, which offers a deck-by-deck look at one of the icons of the era, Holland America’s SS Rotterdam.

Now a floating hotel and museum in its namesake port of Rotterdam in The Netherlands, the 1,456-passenger vessel had a beloved following for its graceful lines. As can be seen in the tour, it features lovely tiered pool decks, elegant dining rooms and spacious suites.

Created by veteran travel writer and ship photographer Peter Knego, the SS Rotterdam photo tour is part of our ongoing series of ship galleries. For an in-depth look at dozens of other passenger vessels old and new, click on the links below:
