Arrival and transfer
Canal Bus is the perfect way of getting around the canals and takes you past all Amsterdam’s highlights. Our comfortable boats offer a regular service along three routes with many stops located near the major museums, attractions and shopping areas.
Although sea cruises continue to be popular in the Amsterdam port region, river cruises are currently experiencing spectacular growth. In 2013, around 2,400 river cruise ships visited Noord-Holland, of which no fewer than 1,500 called in at Amsterdam. The number of sea cruise ships in Amsterdam and IJmuiden decreased last year by six percent to 176, but is increasing once more in 2014 to 189 calls.
Amsterdam Cruise Port (ACP), the promotional foundation for sea and river cruises in the North Sea Canal region, can look back on a successful year. Not only did the number of visits in both categories remain high, the terminals in Amsterdam and IJmuiden also reinforced their public relations and marketing collaboration. Under the name ‘Cruise Terminals Amsterdam’, PTA and Felison Cruise Terminal will start working more closely together, for example by carrying out joint promotional missions to ship owners and holding joint presentations at trade fairs.
