See the latest blockbuster in our cinema, sip a drink or two in the Navigator’s Pub and dance the night away in the Columbus Club.
Our overnight sailings depart at 5pm and arrive at 9:30am the following morning so you get a fun-filled night onboard with your group before heading back to your en suite cabin to sleep. Economy cabins are included in all group mini cruise packages but there are a range of other cabins available including sea view cabins and premium Commodore cabins if you like a touch of luxury!
Cooked and continental breakfasts are available to fill you up for your day in Amsterdam before you head back onboard.
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.
Heading to Amsterdam in the autumn/winter months offers plenty of delights for tourists. If you visit in December, you can visit one of the many Christmas markets and try some ice skating at Dam Square. Book ahead for February to enjoy Amsterdam Coffee Festival and in March, you can start to see the fresh spring flowers in bloom at the city’s famous floating flower market. Whatever time of year you decide to go, you’ll not be short of things to do.
