Day Cruise to Maasvlakte 2
Day Cruise Maasvlakte 2
Experience a whole new part of the Netherlands and a port under development, Maasvlakte 2!
We will start the day with a cup of coffee or tea and apple pie, which will be served by our friendly crew.
After a welcome by our captain, we will set sail towards the Maasvlakte 2.
Around noon you can enjoy a buffet with a variety of cold and hot dishes.
Upon arrival at the Maasvlakte an experienced guide of the Port authorities will come aboard. Along with this guide we will make a tour through this new part of the port where the guide will tell you all about this area.
After this interesting tour there is the possibility to disembark and visit the official visitors centre of the Maasvlakte 2, FutureLand.
FutureLand offers the visitor an experience of the port in an interactive environment. After the visit to FutureLand, we will set sail again towards Rotterdam.
From the home port of Spido we will sail downstream the river, Nieuwe Maas, towards the Botlek area, the well-known port and industry area of Rotterdam.
Along the way we will pass the city of Schiedam, famous for its Dutch Gin ‘Jenever’ and the city of Vlaardingen mostly known in the Netherlands for its Herring.
Further along the way we will pass the town Maassluis, an historic town on the Waterway, and the spectacular construction of the storm surge barrier the Maeslantkering, which is very important for the protection against high floods coming from the North Sea.
Upon arrival at the famous coastal town of Hoek van Holland we will cross the river towards the Calandkanaal, where we will arrive at the Maasvlakte 1, here you will see the largest container terminals like ECT, Maersk and Euromax.
Through the Yangtzekanaal we will eventually arrive at the Maasvlakte 2.
After the visit to FutureLand we will sail back towards Rotterdam where we will pass several highlights along the way like the town of Rozenburg and Pernis.
At the last part of this trip we will also pass the former cruise ship ‘SS Rotterdam’ and of course the beautiful Rotterdam skyline.
