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.

We were a party of four grannies on a weekend jolly and wanted to do something special to round off our trip. We found this via the internet and booked a table on line a week in advance (just as well because we would have been disappointed otherwise!) The service, food and venue were all outstanding. The whole trip was... More

Beautiful, historic boat very efficiently crewed by captain and front of house. Atmosphere pretty much unbeatable, even if you weren't motoring along Amsterdam's characterful and charming canals. Surprisingly spacious but an even bigger surprise was the quality of the food. Highly recommended.

The Amsterdam Jewel Cruise was a great experience. The ship was comfortable, and the captain and his staff was friendly and obliging. As soon as we arrived, we received complimentary olives and nuts. The boat stopped twice to pick up our food from a highly-rated restaurant. The meal consisted of a choice of appetizer, entree, dessert, and coffee. The views... More

This cruise is both a 5 star experience and a 5 star dinner. Myself and my girlfriend have travelled extensively so selecting a suitable place to propose to her was very difficult. This cruise exceeded all expectations and delivered an evening that we will talk about for years to come (she said yes). Any negative reviews are simply wrong -... More

This cruise was everything you need for a great evening out on the canal. The location is easy to get to and the staff very friendly. The cruise allows you to choose your seating - good tip: choose a table close to the front of the boat, The captain told us some history of the canal and stories throughout different... More
