What to Wear
Being casual and comfortable is a part of life on the ms Rotterdam. Weather on the ocean can be warm during the daytime, yet cool in the evening—the “layered look” is a must! You may need a light jacket for both cool weather and potential rain. (A sweater may also be desired for comfort in the air conditioned public areas.) The temperature in each cabin is individually controlled for your own comfort. Bring comfortable shoes to wear in port, streets are often uneven or rough. There are Three formal nights (black tie not required, but suit and tie for gents), and other nights are smart casual nights no jeans or T-shirts in the dining room). We will have early dining reserved for the group. If you don’t want to participate in the formal nights, you have the option of dining casually on the Lido deck.
Travel to and from Amsterdam
A passport that is valid for at least six months beyond your return date is required for travel. Non-US citizens must have a valid passport and any necessary visas. Legal names must be correct on all documents. Lack of proper ID will result in denial of embarkation; therefore all passengers are responsible for necessary identification. If you have access to the Internet, the following website offers excellent information regarding applying for and renewing passports: http://travel.state.gov/passport/passport_1738.html. If you need to obtain a certified copy of your birth certificate: http://www.vitalchek.com is a helpful website.
