Just enjoyed a very good evening cruising the canals around Amsterdam whilst enjoying an excellent dinner. Unlike a cruise we did before there were no attempts at 'showing us the sights' which can be tacky when people just want to chat and the staff let the beauty of the city speak for itself. Strongly recommended

We had a day in Amsterdam and visited Anne Frank House and did a riverboat cruise. Transportation was a breeze from the airport and the city was so clean. Well worth a visit.

Amsterdam has many canal boat dinner cruises, but this one was rated as uniquely intimate, with its small and vintage wooden vessel. Although it was fully booked for the night we requested, we were put on a waiting list, which resulted in us sharing the stern table with three others from Canada. What a wonderful evening! The cruise route was... More

I did a lot of research before our trip and I'd heard good things about this dinner cruise. It's not a guided tour with commentary like the regular canal cruises, just a pleasant relaxing ride through the canals while eating an excellent meal. It was within walking distance of our hotel and easy to find. If we'd been just a... More

We were celebrating our 45 wedding anniversary and really liked the small canal boat. It only holds 12 people. There was the captain and the one waiter. We sat right behind the captain and really enjoyed the narrative he gave while we went through the canals. You saw a part of Amsterdam you would never see if you didn't do... More

+ the cruising around the canals were nice and romantic - food on the boat was a massive disappointment. The boat stopped at a local restaurant to pick up the meal but the food was of a poor standard and lacked choice..

This dinner cruise was one of the highlights of our trip. The staff was delightful. Every table has a window view. The food order was taken and submitted to the restaurant and then picked up in route. So if you need dietary accommodations like I do, they are able to prepare your meal as needed. The canal bridges and homes... More

We wanted a way to see Amsterdam and enjoy a nice meal as we have done before in London - this was it. The boat is over 100 yrs old and held only 12 people for dinner. As we got underway they quickly made sure we had our drinks and finger food while we reviewed the menu. We made a... More

We really enjoyed the whole experience; food was great (I mean, REALLY good!), service excellent. If you're coming to Amsterdam for the first time, you should definitely do this....

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
