Adventures by Disney Rhine River Cruise Day Seven Amsterdam


We have reached our final destination on our Rhine River journey from Basel to Amsterdam.  This Dutch city provides tourists with so much history, art and culture to experience. We can't wait to explore this city of 60 miles of pictureesque canals, 90 islands and 1,500 bridges.

Today, we can choose one morning and one afternoon activity. We want to do them all!

AMSTERDAM CANAL CRUISE

Travel by boat along one of the 165 canals that are Amsterdam's lifeline. Along the way, view this 800-year-old city's famous historical center and some of its most memorable and beautiful attractions—ancient churches, quaint canal houses, picturesque bridges, cobblestone streets and more.

Morning Activities - Choose One Option:

1. Tour the Anne Frank House

2. Discovery history at the Rijksmuseum

3. Visit the Van Gough Museum and Paint Workshop

Lunch on Board the AmaKristina

Afternoon Activities - Choose One Option:

1. Countryside Visit to Volendam, a Fishing Village and decorate a Dutch wooden clog and watch a cheese-making demostration

2. Zaanse Schans and decorate a Dutch wooden clog and watch a cheese-making demostration

3. Tour the Royal Delft Earthenware Factory

4. Visit the Van Gough Museum and Paint Workshop

We choose to visit the Anne Frank House, the actual hiding place where Anne and her family hid from the Nazis in World World II. It was a moving experience to see where one of the most famous stories of triumph and tragedy occurred. Being there made you feel sad but it reaffirmed the believe that good will always over come evil. We will never forget.

In the afternoon, we rode by motorcoach out into the Dutch countryside. We were thrilled by the iconic sights surrounding us in the adorable village of Zaanse Schans. It was very cool to see a real windmill - and go inside to witness and hear (very loudly) how they harness the power of wind. We also watched a cheese-making demonstration and tasted authentic Dutch cheese.

Our seven nights on the AmaKristina was a once-in-a-lifetime vacation that we will never forget. We met so many wonderful people and hope to see our Disney Adventure Guides again soon. Thank you to everyone onboard who made us laugh and made us feel welcome on this magical voyage from Switzerland to the Netherlands.

There is so much to do and see in Amsterdam, we are staying for an additional three nights after our Adventure by Disney Rhine River Cruise at the W Hotel. 


Amsterdam is over flowing with bicycles. Tip - be very aware of the bike lanes when you are walking or crossing the street. Bicylists drive fast and dominate the road.
