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.

Single river cruise region – single free online reservation system

The cities of Amsterdam and Zaanstad became a single river cruise area on 1 January 2018. A free online berth reservation system is available for reservation berths in this area. This means you, as a shipping company, can use Easydock to quickly and conveniently reserve berths for passenger ships in this area. As an added benefit, you will only need to submit one statement and your company will receive only one invoice. Easydock makes the scheduling process transparent and allows you to manage your own ships.
