Amazing crew and captain, promptly enforced that the passengers that arrived earlier had priority in deciding the table to sit. The tour was very insightful into Amsterdam's history with a funny touch added by the captain. The pizza was better than expected and because it was late the crew offered extra drinks and the tour took 30 minutes more, which made everyone happy the delay happened!

Brilliant! The patron of the ship and the super friendly and nice waitresses. The pizza is warm and very tasty. Unlimited drinks: red Merlot wine, white Chardonnay, Heineken beer, still and sparkling water, soft drinks... The explanation is all in English and very pleasant. I recommend it to everybody.

Good activity, playful, entertaining and the guides are very funny
