Amsterdam, Netherlands, Europe Cruise

    Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands with impressive architecture, lovely canals that crisscross the city, great shopping, and friendly people who nearly all speak English well.Visiting Amsterdam remains a unique experience, just like a cruise. The historical city centre is a world heritage site and compact living museum where everything is within walking distance, from the diamond cutters to the world famous museums and art galleries. Port of Amsterdam cruise ships dock at the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam, from where visitors can easily walk to the centre. The terminal has a large reception hall, extensive catering and shopping facilities and tourist information office. The Central Station and bus terminal, with its arrival and departure hall for coaches, means easy links for travelers across the country. The Amsterdam cruise terminal is busy in season, hosting some 100 ships from spring through fall. The terminal, near the start of the new Eastern Docklands development, is a 10-minute walk or a five-minute ride from Central Station, where all of the city’s bus, trolley and boat lines can be boarded.
    Amsterdam is a large city and a major tourist destination, so you can visit it all year round. However, in winter the days are short (8 hours daylight around Christmas), and the weather may be too cold to walk around the city comfortably, let alone cycle. July and August are the warmest months, with an average temperature of 72°F (22°C). Some things are seasonal: the tulip fields flower only in the spring, and Queen's Day (Koninginnedag) is always on 30 April, unless it falls on a Sunday. Queen Beatrix was actually born on 31 January, but since January is very cold, the celebrations are held on the birthday of her mother, Juliana. You may explore Amsterdam’s center on foot or join the thousands of residents who favor riding their bicycles. One of the most delightful ways to enjoy the city’s famous sights is from a glass-topped sightseeing boat. Gliding through the canals, the boat passes the characteristic gabled houses and negotiates picturesque arched bridges. See which ships are in port on the selected day...
