Faced with mounting debt, reports out of Holland indicate that the S/S Rotterdam from 1959 may be sold soon. Report indicate that interested parties in Oman are serious about purchasing the ship and moving her to Oman as a hotel for VIPs.

Although there are other offers for the liner, the offer from Oman appears to be reasonable and fair.

The S/S Rotterdam was purchased by her current owners, who spent over 240 Million Euros on her renovations, removing asbestos and restoring the liner to it's original grandeur.  Unfortunately delays in the upgrades combined with lower than anticipated public attendance and utilization, left her current owners in financial trouble.

Please stay tuned here for additional information and updates.
