Amsterdam City Tours
Explore the Venice of the North
Let's go Dutch! Spend three glorious days and nights in Amsterdam before your ship even sets sail. Add a Celebrity City Stay to your cruise.
Your Celebrity Cruises chauffeur will meet you at the airport to whisk you away to the 4-star Amsterdam Marriott Hotel. It overlooks the cruise port, with spectacular views of the city and river.
Begin your three night stay in the center of Amsterdam—one of the world's most welcoming cities—at a hotel in easy walking distance from Central Station. Spend the afternoon exploring on your own, or use the Celebrity Cruises Hospitality Desk in the hotel to book tours, reserve restaurants, and answer questions. Your wish is their command.
Before your tours begin, take time to explore the nightlife of Amsterdam. Live like a local and raise a glass in a neighborhood brew pub. Find that out-of-the-way dinner hot spot. Or unwind in style at your hotel. Your vacation, your rules!
After breakfast at the Amsterdam Marriott Hotel, you'll set off on a guided tour of windmills, wooden shoes, dairy farms, and the Dutch countryside. First stop is picturesque Zaanse Schans. Take in the traditional houses, stylized gardens, shops, and iconic windmills dating back to the 18th Century. Then it's on to Edam, synonymous with great cheese. Step back in time as you stroll along 17th-century facades, squares, shops, cafes, bridges, and canals.
Enjoy lunch in the fishing village of Volendam. Explore its charming harbor. Then head to nearby Marken, where you'll see locals in traditional dress and houses built on mounds to protect against flooding. Your last stop takes you to a dairy farm where you'll experience all things cheese, from making to tasting (the best part). Relax and soak in stunning landscapes on your ride back to Amsterdam.
It's your night! For an intimate dinner or an electric night on the town, quiz the Celebrity Cruises Hospitality Desk at your hotel for suggestions, reservations, and directions.
After breakfast in your hotel, explore Amsterdam on your own. Museums, the historic city center, and Amsterdam Central Station are all within walking distance. Visit the Celebrity Hospitality Desk for tips. Ask about lunch hot spots to fuel up for your next tour.
Your guided tour lets you experience Amsterdam from a different perspective—its iconic canal system. Gain a sense of the city's layout and maritime history. Board your city cruise and check out three most important canals. See sites that are best viewed from the water. Next up is a bus tour where you'll get a glimpse of the Royal Palace, New Church, City Hall, Central Station, St. Nicolas Church, and famous flea market in Waterloo Square.
Enjoy dinner in town at an exquisite restaurant as part of your tour. Relax back at the Amsterdam Marriott Hotel plan and refuel for your next day. Or spend your last evening kicking up your heels at a local pub.
