It was really a coincidence that we saw this object. Trying to get another and different way home to The Hague ( I really think that a photograph should turning round 180 degrees from his point of view to get new ideas ;) ) we saw this lightning object in the harbor and we got it :)
The fifth SS Rotterdam, known as "The Grande Dame", was launched by Queen Juliana in a gala ceremony on 13 September 1958, and completed the following summer. The Rotterdam was the last great Dutch "ship of state", employing the finest artisans from the Netherlands in her construction and fitting out process. With a career spanning forty years, she was also one of the most successful passenger ships of all time. She sailed from 1959 until her final retirement in September 2000.
