In the Fall of 2014, Rotterdam sailed around South Africa for 88 days. From November 12 to December 20, 2014, the last segment of the cruise went from Cape Town, South Africa to Southampton, England.

Rotterdam sails around Europe during the summer and South America in the winter. Commencing in 2012, she was based year-round in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
