ROTTERDAM - The cruise ship Eurodam sailed into its home port of Rotterdam on Sunday, attracting a large crowd.

The largest passenger ship ever to be registered under a Dutch flag, the new Holland-America Line ship was built in Italy, and sailed from Southampton on Saturday. It is the 14th ship in the Holland America Line’s fleet.

Nearly 300 metres long, the ship has more than 1,000 cabins, three swimming pools, five restaurants and a casino. The Eurodam will be named by Queen Beatrix on Tuesday and will set off on its first cruise next weekend.
