Amsterdam Cruise Port

Amsterdam Cruise Port is one of the Baltic's largest cargo ports, as well as a popular gateway to the Dutch city of Amsterdam. Most cruise liners dock at the Passenger Terminal in the East Docklands neighborhood, which offers good transport links with which to explore Amsterdam's principal attractions—from the famed canals and coffeeshops to the Dutch countryside.

The Basics

Travelers disembarking in Amsterdam can take advantage of the cruise port’s central location to dive straight into guided sightseeing, opting for private or public transfer to the city center to visit iconic landmarks such as the Anne Frank House and Van Gogh Museum. Popular destinations outside of the urban capital include Keukenhof, Zaanse Schans, and Volendam, where visitors can glimpse the Netherland's more rural heritage.
