Amazing Amsterdam

Amsterdam’s culture and history is among the best in the world, with fascinating museums, galleries and other sites of interest telling their stories on every corner, however, the nightlife of Amsterdam is what truly makes the city special.

With one of the most cosmopolitan offerings of restaurants in Europe, dining in Amsterdam is a truly international experience. The Dutch capital is also a fantastic place to relax with a drink, offering everything from traditional pubs with premium, continental beers on tap to ultra-modern bars serving a huge range of cocktails.

Our hotel partner, Booking.com, has over 800 1 to 5 star hotels, B&Bs, boutique apartments and guest houses in Amsterdam alone, so your group is guaranteed to find the perfect place to stay in the Dutch capital. You can even book a hotel as far afield as Haarlem or Utrecht and spend the night there instead.

Onboard entertainment

With our cruise & stay break the fun begins as soon as your group board. Relax and have a drink in one of our onboard bars, hit our Columbus club for live music, catch a movie at the onboard cinema, hit our shops or head to the games.

Our all-you-can-eat Explorer's Kitchen restaurant serves food from all corners of the world but for a more luxury dining experience head to North Sea Bistro.

On our overnight crossings, you and your group can share your own private en suite cabins and cross in comfort. Our economy cabins are comfortable and suitable for groups, but if you wish then you can upgrade to our standard cabins, which come with inside and sea view options.
