A canal boat will be waiting for your one-hour sightseeing cruise in front of the terminal. When you have found your seat, you will be served with a nice cup of coffee and a delicious Dutch pastry.

Some of the 100 canals and 1,000 bridges of Amsterdam will open up to you as your private canal boat quietly passes by beautiful gabled houses, elegant merchant’s mansions and carillon-crowned churches dating to the 16th and 17th centuries. 

As your canal boat glides gently across the water, you will view the Anne Frank house, the Westerchurch, the “Golden Bend” and City Hall. Slip silently by the river Amstel with its Skinny Bridge, the Twin Houses and the harbor of Amsterdam.

 After your delightful cruise, join your motor coach for a scenic drive through the heart of Amsterdam. Pass by the maritime museum, tropenmuseum and the Jewish Historical Museum and proceed to the museum area for a drive past the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum. Passing the Central Station, return to your Crystal ship.
