Rotterdam Cruise Ship

Way slower than flying

The Airport Search cruise evaluation group has been on task on a ship for the past two weeks making our first transatlantic voyage from Rotterdam, The Netherlands to New York City.

We’ve been on Holland America Line’s Rotterdam, that's recreating the road’s first actual voyage, which passed off exactly one hundred fifty years in the past.

These days, of direction, flying from Europe to the USA is the manner to move. And the journey, by using plane, is perhaps 7 hours. If the flight takes a good deal longer, cutting-edge-day tourists start complaining.

On this adventure, even though, the crossing has taken 7 days.

It’s always exciting to peer the view of New York City while landing at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) or Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).

But early this foggy morning, sailing beyond the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is a completely distinct, and oddly emotional, experience.
