What You Can Expect

Amsterdam Canals Cruise with Dinner Cooked On Board

Feast on fine food while cruising around Amsterdam's canals

Amble around Amsterdam on this canal dinner cruise, and be treated to a decadent dinner cooked on board. Meet your sightseeing boat opposite Amsterdam Central Station 15 minutes prior to your scheduled evening departure. You’ll be welcomed aboard by the attentive wait staff with a complimentary drink from the bar.

The route taken is dependent on water levels on the day, but you’ll typically view top attractions such as the Skinny Bridge (Magere Brug), Amstel River, Hermitage Museum and legendary Anne Frank House. Watch the setting sun shimmer on the romantic waterways and the illuminated sights glide past as dusk falls. You’ll hear fun facts and trivia about the city from the crew.

When it’s time for dinner, take a seat at your table, either out on deck or inside the lower saloon. Unlike many other Amsterdam dinner cruises, all food is prepared and cooked on board, ensuring that your meal is of the freshest quality. Choose from a meat, fish or vegetarian selection at booking and enjoy four courses accompanied by wine, beer and soft drinks. Finish with homemade dessert served with coffee or tea.

After 2.5 hours cruising around the canals, return to the start point and hop back onto dry land.
