An amazing way to see the city of Amsterdam at night is taking a dinner cruise. Customers can choose between two different cruise lines which include Lovers Canal Cruises and Stromma Canal Tours. Lovers Canal Cruises is a little more expensive than the Stromma Canal Tours. I went on the Stromma cruise, which lasted 2 ½ hours giving customers the opportunity to enjoy Amsterdam’s famous attractions from the canal, while enjoying a four-course meal including drinks. The food that was served was very delicious from start to finish. The appetizers, second course, and dessert were all a set menu except the main course, which customers were allowed to choose between veal, salmon, or vegetable lasagna. For my main meal, I enjoyed the veal served with a potato and bok choy. I enjoyed the variety selection of desserts that included light and airy vanilla curds served with rhubarb, chocolate mousse, and a macaroon. Some of the attractions we passed on the tour included the Anne Frank House, the Westerkerk Church, A’DAM LOOKOUT Tower, Maritime Museum, and the Nemo Science Museum. The atmosphere was very calming and romantic with candlelight in the background and the rope lighting on the arched bridges. I didn’t like that the tables were crammed up next to each other on the cruise because I felt like I was eating with another couple. The customers didn’t have any privacy to talk to their loved ones, especially when the neighboring table would overhear our conversation and interrupt or join into the conversation uninvited. I would definitely do the dinner cruise again the next time I visit Amsterdam. I have also included the links to the Lover’s dinner cruise and the Stromma dinner cruise if any of you are interested in enjoying an evening dinner cruise on the canal in Amsterdam.
