    From 1959 to 1971 the ship 'commuted' between Rotterdam and New York.
    It then became a cruise ship to far-away, exotic destinations until 2000.
    Between 2005 and 2008 the ship got restored to its original glory, and turned into a hotel, permanently moored in Rotterdam.
    In February 2010 the ship welcomed its first visitors.
