Onboard facilities and amenities

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 colors. It is also a great spot to get to know fellow travelers. The vast Sun Deck has plenty of space for everybody. 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 ship's 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 a resident musician. The spectacular farewell evening show of the crew is a highlight of any MPS Rotterdam voyage.

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 dishes, salads, fresh fruits and cheeses. The 4-course evening meal is full table service, giving a chance to sample traditional cuisine or delicious specialties 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.
