In preparing for an after-cruise few days in Amsterdam, I was looking for a nice canal dinner cruise for me and my wife. Not that there's anything wrong with the 25-person "commercial" boats that all have dinner cruises....but I wanted something really special.
And I found it with Amsterdam Jewel Cruises! On a refurbished (and quite comfortable) late 1800's riverboat, we spent nearly 3 hours cruising with only a few others and enjoying one of the best meals (and great conversation with the crew) that I've ever experienced!
Food is not prepared in advance (as it is on most of these dinner cruises) but rather phoned into a great local restaurant after you are underway and is picked up hot, fresh and delicious while you are enroute exploring the city's canals.
Private tables for whatever the size of your reservation (we were two) rather than big communal tables makes this a wonderful, romantic experience!
Five stars is not enough for Amsterdam Jewel Cruises. You'll pay a few dollars more than on many other dinner cruises--but, boy, it's worth it--and much more!
I will always go back when we are in Amsterdam again!
