VIEWS OF THE PAST
In 2009, Rotterdam underwent a major refit.
The refit included significant changes both to
the interior and to the ship's exterior. This
page shows what some of the areas looked like
before the changes.
The Sea View Pool (above right) was located
at the back of the ship with spectacular views
over the stern. It was replaced by the Retreat.
Also displaced by the Retreat was the Sea
View Bar (below).

Cruise ship photo tour - Holland America Line - Rotterdam - page 6
The biggest change to the interior was the addition of the three-bar area, Mix. Before the refit, his area contained the Casino
Bar (above), which not only served the casino but acted as a sports bar with television screens around the bar.
Mix also displaced the Tropic Bar and the Ambassador Lounge (below).
