Why an Amsterdam booze cruise is the best way to see the city!
You can drink in a bar in any city in the world, and Amsterdam is no exception with a huge selection of great bars lining the stunning canals of the city – but for a true Amsterdam experience, you can’t do better than a boozy canal cruise along the world-famous waterways, taking in the sights with a cold beer in hand!

When in Amsterdam, do as the Amsterdammers do…
When the sun shines, hundreds of locals take to the water in all manner of boats, and enjoy a Heineken-fuelled trip through their beautiful city. This is a true Amsterdam tradition and hopping onto a boat, sitting back and enjoying the summer sun with a load of ice-cold Dutch beers is a perfect way to enjoy the city in style!
Although there are numerous canal cruises where tourists can climb aboard, plug into an audio guide and learn about the fascinating history of the 17th century canal belt, the best way to enjoy a boat cruise is to do like the locals do and jump on a boat with a bunch of friends, and wash down the sights with plenty of booze!
Ernest Hemmingway famously said that ‘there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats’ and we’re inclined to agree with him – after all, someone who enjoyed a drink as much as he did would have certainly approved of combining plenty of drinking with an afternoon of boating on an Amsterdam booze cruise!
The best value booze boat ride in town!
The canals of Amsterdam are the home of various events, like: the gaypride, kingsday or the Amsterdam Light festival. but also on days when there are no events, the canals are a nice place to spend the day.
If you’re drinking in a bar in Amsterdam, it certainly isn’t cheap. But with the unlimited drinks package provided by booze cruises in the city, assuming that your group is thirsty, a booze cruise can actually work out a lot cheaper! Considering an Amsterdam booze cruise costs around 35 euros per person (which might only cover 5 pints in the centre!) and includes unlimited drinks (beer/wine/soda), a booze-fuelled sail through the city centre is actually surprisingly budget-friendly! Think of a booze cruise as a floating bar but with a great, ever-changing view – and even better, when you break the seal, you won’t have to pay 50 cents to use the toilet! And if you’re really wanting to push the boat out and take the party to the next level, spirits can be added for a small additional cost!
Get the party started with boze cruise through the world-famous canal belt!
An Amsterdam booze cruise is the best way to get the party started and lets you enjoy some must-see sightseeing on the famous Amsterdam canals without losing out on valuable drinking time. If you’ve got a great night out planned in the city’s bars and clubs (maybe on one of the city’s famous pub crawls), an Amsterdam booze cruise can be the perfect way to pre-drink for amsterdam nightlife in style! What better way to enjoy the best that the city has to offer in style, comfort and with beer goggles firmly attached!?
