As you cruise, hear about the city’s history from the onboard commentary, and enjoy refreshments from the bar, including one complimentary drink.

There was no introduction when you got on the boat and you had to guess about the headphones. The headphone sockets were old and worked occasionally throughout. The staff were being loud and obnoxious with other customers in the back by the table next to us. The heating was right by the window where you sit and there is a large fixed table between the seats so I had no room to breath! The windows did not open either. It was a very uncomfortable 1.5hrs, I would not recommend it.

Chilly Winter’s evening but enclosed and warm. Some commentary over earphones. Good views albeit dark and wet. Would love to repeat in Spring or Summer.

We landed in Amsterdam in the afternoon, checked into our hotel, and went on this 8pm cruise. It was just the right thing to hit the ground running to get a 1st impression of this incredible city. Especially this time of year when the Xmas lights are up! Was very cozy inside, nice to relax with a beer and some Gouda cheese snacks. Pure relaxation and enjoyment for 90 minutes, the perfect Welcome to Amsterdam I'd say.
