    Former easyCruiseTwo
    1 more image

    Stelios Haji-Ioannou - the owner of Easyjet - in 2006 took the initiative to start a cheap river cruiseline to Rotterdam, Antwerp and Brussels. The river boat easyCruiseTwo was specially build for this purpose. The ship sailed from Amsterdam to Rotterdam, Antwerp & Brussels and back until August 2007 when the Boonstra shipping company -the owner of the ship- went bankrupt.

    The second ship easyCruiseOne was in use untill February 2008 and which time easyCruise stopped all of her activities.

    Amsterdam has build a new Passenger Terminal, just East of the Central Station. So, if you visit Amsterdam by Cruise Liner you are in the heart of the city.

    Closer to the Central station is the pier for the Viking River Cruise ship.

    EasyCruisetwo: River Cruise from Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp to Brussels with Stelios. From around £9 per cabin per night you can cruise from and into Amsterdam on a river boat. We enjoyed our short cruise down to Brussels. The Boat was moored near centraal station in Amsterdam and departs around 3 a.m. to arrive in another city by 1p.m. next day. More review information, the good bad and ugly is posted at http://www.jerryhewitt.homechoice.co.uk/content/easy2.html.

    There are other companies doing the same thing and you do not have to travel by Easycruise! Ask for a cabin away from any engines or propellors etc. Jerry & Miki

    The riverside picks up near the Jordaan

    Rent your own boat to go through the canals. It is better to do this with a group because you have to pay for the entire boat, no matter how many people.
    You can choose your own start and end points (providing there is a landingplace the boat can stop), and your own route. You rent this boat, with captain, for a certain time.

    Prices:
    * Panta Rhei € 170.00 an hour (up to 15 persons)
    * Riverside € 212.00 an hour (up to 38 persons)

    Minimum 1½ hour
    Tourist tax: 50 cent p.p.

    We experienced a trip on a sunny sunday afternoon and we liked it.

    One good way to get downtown...

    One good way to get downtown if you are staying out of town like me is Hydrfoil. This Boat has Skis on the bootom front of the boat enabling it to move quite quickly(we were going close to the same speed as a bus on the road beside us) It is very difficult to get a parking spot downtown so if you dont take the train this was worth the approx 15 guilders return.
