Amsterdam: the ultimate river cruise destination
One of the largest river cruise ports in Northwestern Europe, Amsterdam was named ‘Cruise Destination of the Year’ for the second consecutive year in 2017. A total of 1,946 river cruise ships called on Amsterdam in 2017, carrying a combined 406,949 passengers. The Dutch capital remains a major attraction, with its berths conveniently located near the historic city centre, world-class museums, and numerous local sights. In addition, on account of its strategic location near Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam also serves as the pick-up and drop-off point for the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal to Budapest, as well as for Black Sea cruises.
