Christmas shopping in Amsterdam
As you can well imagine from a capital city, Amsterdam is well-stocked for shops. In terms of sheer variety, the Dutch capital has it all, from huge international department stores to vintage, antique and boutique gift shopping.
There are also market stalls which pop up around the city, particularly on Leidseplein and Koningsplein, for you to explore as you warm up with a gluhwein or take a spin on the ice-rink.
We have 2 excellent restaurants for you to choose from onboard, sure to whet anybody's appetite. Our North Sea Bistro restaurant offers an à la carte dining experience in stylish surroundings. The fresh, seasonal menu comes with complimenting wine which our trained waiters will happily advise you on. Alternative, our popular Explorers Kitchen buffet is an all-you-can-eat world-food experience, with an array of international dishes to choose from. Book in advance to save compared to onboard prices. We also have a variety of cabins available. Choose economy, standard or if you'd like a little bit more luxury, then why not splash out on one of our premium Commodore cabins? After all, it is Christmas!
