My name is Rian van Dongen, born in Schiedam, near Rotterdam.
I lived in Antwerp from March 2003 till June 2015, but later returned
to Rotterdam, because I missed all the activity of the biggest port of the world.
This passion starts in april 2014 with the departure of cruise ship "Balmoral" in the Belgian port of Antwerp.
From January 2015 the collection is further enhanced with all types of navy ships.
The basis of this website is to provide information about port visits of cruise ships and navy ships
in the port of Rotterdam and other Dutch seaports, but even to show all my photographed vessels with accompanying background information.
My collection of photographed ships from all over the world now consists of;
- 66 cruise ships of 24 cruise compagnies including 4 photo specials on board of cruise ships.
- 87 different types of navy ships from 25 countries.
The naval vessels of the NATO members are listed by country and all the other naval vessels by continent/country.
A last update does not always means a new photo, but also adjustments of new information.
Below you see the ships currenty in port and my lastest added photos. Click on every photo to enlarge it.
