PO FERRIES "PRIDE OF ROTTERDAM"
the PRIDE OF ROTTERDAM and her sister ship PRIDE OF HULL were built in Italy by FINCANTIERI, the ROTTERDAM was delivered in April 2001, the HULL later in the year. PRIDE OF ROTTERDAM has a GT of 59.925 and a service speed of 22knots, the sisters were until the introduction of MV COLOR MAGIC the biggest passenger ferries in the world, they are however the biggest cruise ferries operating from the UK, I have sailed a few times on both ships, photos included were taken in February on board the PRIDE OF ROTTERDAM, the first one shows the ship at her berth in March, both vessels provide a wonderful mini cruise experience, they are operated by PO FERRIES on the Hull/Rotterdam service
