Amsterdam, one day, pre cruise logistics and plan

Jump to last reply

My wife and I arrive Amsterdam early afternoon the day before our Viking River Cruise (next week). The day of the cruise, we'd like to check in early enough to drop our bags and put our name in for a cabin upgrade if possible- then head out and see the city. General boarding isn't until 3pm, and the boat does not sail until 10pm. Hotel location may not be an issue if this is simply a matter of jumping into a cab around 11am and popping over to the cruise terminal to leave the bags and make our arrangements.

Looking for a nice hotel (4 stars)-- biggest bang for the buck and location best suited for making the most of that first half day/evening and late morning side trip to the ship the following full day. Any suggestions on where to situate ourselves and how we might manage things day of cruise would be appreciated. Since we're there for such a short time we'd simply like to take in the city, see either the Van Gogh or Rembrandt museum and enjoy some good food in the process.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts. Regards, K
