First, let me say that the dinner cruise was lovely. The boat is beautiful and well maintained, the staff excellent, and the food excellent and hot - thanks to circling back to the same restaurant for each course. And the canals are, of course, lovely - everything that you would like them to be. The cruise itself, aside from being... More

This was planned as a birthday surprise for my wife during a short visit to the Netherlands and it exceeded all expectations. The boat is small and the dining experience is intimate and luxurious with individual tables, each of which is situated at a window. The food was superb, collected from a gourmet restaurant via two brief stops on the... More

We booked this dinner cruise a few months ago before starting our trip. We were looking forward to it and we were not disappointed. The captain was informative and entertaining, the waitress (Mireille) was pleasant, approachable and very professional. The food, the boat ride and the atmosphere were exceptional. Best part of our two week trip so far! Thank you!... More

In the planning stages of our vacation to Amsterdam, I had a desire to take some sort of canal cruise. In my research I discerned between the various options and noticed several operators offering dinner cruises. I could see that no other dinner cruise comes close to Jewel Cruises in terms of overall satisfaction on trip advisor. This in combination... More

My last review over my dissatisfaction with this service provider was removed by Tripadvisor because this provider had claimed it was "fraud". Are we not able to post negative reviews, when we experience negative service? This adds to my dissatisfaction with the service we received from AJC.

We did the dinner cruise with this company. It started around 7:30 pm. The food was good. It was lovely to look at all the buildings from the canals. It was a peaceful and romantic experience.

Absolutely loved this dinner cruise on the canals of Amsterdam. The captain and hostess were very friendly and the food was good, but quietly cruising along the canals and the spectacular views were by far the best. This is one of my best travel memories and there is no doubt that I would go again.

Yes, yes, yes, I've real all the previous reviews.. That's why we booked this trip. What the 5-star reviewers do not mention is that if you are not one of the "front 3 tables" you do not get the "captains entertaining quips and context" - you just get sit for 3 hours and look at interesting houseboats and buildings along...

My husband and I managed to get a last minute ticket on this romantic cruise and it definitely exceeded all of our expectations! The captain and the hostess were delightful and full of information about what we were passing, the food was excellent and the mood was very romantic. I would highly recommend this to any couple travelling to Amsterdam.
