Enjoy a cruise from the Amsterdam Noord to Zaanse Schans, a neighborhood in the Dutch town of Zaandam, near Amsterdam. Sail through the port area and enjoy sweeping views of the largest cocoa and petrol port in the world, the Port of Amsterdam, and Zaanse Schans from the panoramic boat of the deck. Soak in the comforts of the ship's luxurious interior accommodation on the cruise.

Admire the old warehouses and historic factories as you cruise on the Zaan through the world's oldest industrial area. You will be stopping at Zaanse Schans where you can explore the charming village for a couple of hours. In existence since 1961, the village has much to explore. Visit the first grocery store of Mr Albert Heijn, see the local windmills and buy local products like spices and mustard.

After going through the Wilhelminasluis, arrive at Zijkanaal 'G' and soon the 't IJ. Sail between sea shipping to and from the North Sea. Reach the Amsterdam North at the jetty of the former historic NDSM wharf. With the free NDSM ferry next to the mooring location, you’ll across 't IJ at Amsterdam Central in 20 minutes.

Experience the beauty of our Dutch cultural heritage in the Zaan region by boat and on foot!
