Cabins onboard

Amsterdam, Holland

Explore Amsterdam

Enjoy five hours in the Dutch capital, where you can stroll the cobbled streets, curve the winding canals and discover some of the world’s best museums. See the city through a canal cruise, rent a bike and cycle like a local or if you prefer a slower pace, stroll to some of the lovely cafes in the city and enjoy some Dutch pancakes. If you’re heading to Amsterdam in December, be sure to see the 60ft Christmas tree in Dam Square or see the city sparkle in the annual Light Festival which lasts until late January.
