What a beautiful evening and a beautiful 100 year old parlor boat with great food, music, wine, views and some commentary on the canals. We weren't sure what to expect and boy were we pleased. Interestingly we ordered the food from the menu and it was called into the restaurant Van De Kaart. We stopped outside the restaruant twice. Once... More

This was our first night in Amsterdam. We had a wonderful evening! The food was perfectly prepared. We sat close to the captain and had the opportunity to hear about the areas we were in and about the city. The other guests close by were very friendly and interesting to talk to also. Clearly a fantastic dinner with all the... More

I booked this dinner experience as an Anniversary surprise for my wife, although this had to be a day late as they did not operate on the actual day. I made an online booking prior to arrival having read reviews of various dinner cruise operators and deciding that, although probably the most expensive on offer, it was the most romantic... More

While the Amsterdam Jewel Cruise is technically categorized as an “activity” on Tripadvisor, this was by far the best meal we had in Amsterdam and there’s certainly no better view you’ll find at any other restaurant in the city. We were a party of four so we were seated in the very rear of the small, beautifully maintained, boat in... More

Very satisfying cruise to take my partner on as a treat. Was sat up by the front tables by the captain, going by some of the reviews on here I sort of expected a running commentary on places/sight of interest but instead the captain said at the beginning to ask him if you wanted to know anything about what you...

I had read the generally good reports of this canal dinner cruise and was not at all disappointed. It is a very pleasant small boat with a nice atmosphere and good food that they collect at two stops at a canalside restaurant. The service was very impeccable and it was extremely good value. I would have no hesitation in recommending... More

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
