Welcome

My name is Rian van Dongen, born on June 20, 1964 in Schiedam (Netherlands). From the beginning of 2003 untill June 2015 I lived in Antwerp (Belgium)but due personal reasons I have moved back to the Netherlands and currently live in one of the largest port city, Rotterdam. This passion started in early 2014 with the  departure of a cruise ship in the port of Antwerp. From January 2015 the collection is further enhanced with all kind of naval ships, but in the course of time some pictures of cruise ships and naval ships have already been replaced by better images. 

Unfortunately, due to work and travel distance, it is not always possible to take a picture of every cruise ship or navy ship.


The basis of this website is to provide information about port visits of cruise ships and naval ships in the port of Rotterdam, Amsterdam or another Dutch seaports and their most relevant websites and webcams.

There will be NO information provided about ships in maintenance or ships on military operations.
