I piggy-backed on Texas girl's post but decided to post my own as my issues are a little different. We are ending our river cruise in Amsterdam and overnighting in port. We should get there by 6 on excursion that leaves Hoorn where the boat docks briefly before proceeding to the port in Amsterdam. We will travel through the villages on our way and end with a canal tour of Amsterdam before returning to the boat. We're traveling mid-September.
So if we are willing to forgo dinner on board (the Gala dinner is the night prior) we will have the evening to explore the city. I understand the boats dock behind the train station more or less depending on position.
Next night we have a hotel on Single canal and plane home next morning around 10.
I am hoping we can disembark by early and get to hotel to drop bags and have the rest of the day.
One of our party has Anne Frank Haus as a must see, another the Rijksmuseum. We will get tickets ahead for both. As the AFH is a timed ticket that is a dilemma as it gets more crowded as the day goes on. I would love to get tickets between 9-9:30 if I could count on getting there from the boat on time. Suggestions?
What else to do, see?
