My fiancé booked this for us as a surprise for me whilst visiting Amsterdam. I was a bit dubious at first as my experience of canal cruises has been cold and boring. I was very much mistaken, this was a lovely intimate dining experience. We got to see some lovely sights of Amsterdam, which is also nice to see as... More

I booked a surprise trip away for my husands birthday and booked as many fine dining restaurants as we could fit in. I also wanted something a little different and when I saw a fine dining cruise I thought it would be perfect. I asked for advice on the forums with regard which company would be the best .......and all... More

Excellent from start to finish. Food good and atmosphere on this small intimate boat brilliant for special occasions. We sat at the front which is perfect for getting local bits from the captain without it being intrusive.

As other reviews have said this is a small evening dinner cruise around the Canals of Amsterdam and I booked it as a surprise for my Partner. Arrived early (as did most of the other guests) to a warm welcome from the Captain and Hostess. We were happy to sit at the back as we had done a cruise earlier... More

My husband researched all the dinner cruise options before settling on Jewel. He's a firm believer in 5-star ratings. This cruise exceeded expectations, which were high. We especially enjoyed looking into the homes and house boats on the canal; what great insight into the lifestyle in Amsterdam! We felt like legal voyeurs, knowing that this is just what one does...

I read the reviews on Trip Advisor before booking this cruise and they did not lie. The 100 year old boat is small and takes around 16 passengers and we were taken great care of by the Captain and the lady who made sure we were fed and watered. There is a choice of menu and the food was top... More

This is a small boat, perhaps 20 or 25 people. Very luxurious and comfortable. We were greeted by name, shown to our seats and offered champagne. They have their meals cooked by a restaurant, so we place our order, cruised a bit with some hors d'oeuvres, stopped to pick up the first course, more cruising, back to pick up the... More

Nice romantic experience. Food was prepared nice and fresh. Our Captain was able to give us a bit of a guided tour, but not to the point that it became bothersome. Would do this again.
