Who can deny their love of steam engines, the source of all power from Grandfather's time?

However, only a few steam enthusiasts ever make a private cruise of several days in an old steam tugboat where they are not only esteemed guests but also the temporary captain.

Thanks to the efforts of the steam shipping company 'M & K Steam-charters', such a unique possibility is now available. For alongside the quay of one of the picturesque seaports, which are so abundant in Holland, lies the S.S. Rosalie impatiently waiting for the true steam-enthusiasts.

In this beautiful ship dating from 1889 (19 metres long) which has all modern comforts (cabins, galley, shower/toilets etc.) and an expert 2-man crew, cruises are offered for 2-4 guests through the rich and varied waterways of Holland.

The slogan 'Be the master of the S.S. Rosalie' provides the guests with the opportunity to plan the route and the desired arrangements (mooring places, excursions, meals, etc.).
