Most of the onboard facilities are on the Lounge Deck. The elegant main lounge area is quite spacious, with panoramic views and a dance floor, decorated in warm colours. It is also a great spot to get to you know fellow travellers. The vast Sun Deck features plenty of room for everybody onboard. Guests can soak up the sun from a lounger, or relax in the sheltered area if they prefer to stay in the shade. There is also an exercise bicycle to keep in shape while onboard.

The cruise manager keeps guests entertained with onboard activities during the day. In the evening travellers can sit back and relax or dance to the sounds of resident musician. The spectacular farewell evening show of the crew is a highlight of any MPS Rotterdam cruise. 

All cabins offer multi-channel satellite TV, centrally-regulated air-conditioning and telephone. They are also fitted with a dressing table and private bathroom facilities, including a toilet and shower. Grade C+ Superior Twin staterooms are  situated on the Main Deck and are more spacious. Grade B+ Superior Twin rooms also have sliding windows. Grade B, located on the promenade Deck, are more spacious, with approximate size of 14 m2 (150 ft2). 

Each day on MPS Rotterdam starts with the breakfast buffet, offering a wide range of Continental and English breakfast treats. At lunchtime, passengers enjoy table-served starters before helping themselves to the buffet, with a choice of cold meats, hot dish, salads, fresh fruits and cheeses. The 4-course evening meal is full table service, giving the chance to sample traditional cuisine or delicious specialities of the places visiting. Once per cruise, an impressive 6-course Captain’s dinner is offered. All meals are served in the Lounge Deck restaurant.
