Amazing Amsterdam

It’s no surprise that many of our customers want to extend their stay in Amsterdam. The Dutch capital has fantastic nightlife, including brilliant bars and concert venues, wonderful restaurants and more to discover. During the day you can wander the city’s canal-lined streets, or even take a tour of the canals, with themed options available, including a candlelit cruise and a pizza cruise! There are also plenty of museums, galleries and other attractions to explore, with art and history buffs more than catered for with the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank House, plus loads more.

Cabins onboard

Once you’ve eaten, drank and danced to your heart’s content, you’ll want to get comfortable, which you can do in your own, private en suite cabin. Our standard Seaways cabins come with standard and sea view options, but if you’re after a more luxurious break you can book one of our premium Commodore or Commodore De Luxe cabins, which are more spacious and comfortable and come with complimentary drinks and snacks.
