We spent three days prior to the cruise here and ranked this city #1 of all those visited on this cruise. Great vibe, plenty to do, and friendly people. Keep your eyes on the bikes! We booked our own hotel and excursions and transportation to/from the cruise ship terminal. Check out Hotel Fita if you need a convenient, small boutique hotel with a nice breakfast in a great location (close to the Rikksmuseum, Van Gogh museum, outer canal, and trams). For excursions, try Mike's Bike Tours, the Blue Boat Canal tour for a night cruise (9:30 was a great time in summer), the Van Gogh Museum and the Hop on Hop Off canal boat tour. Pompa is also a nice restaurant close to the hotel.

We had two days pre-trip and two days in port. There is no end to the things you can do in Amsterdam and getting around is extremely easy. You can do the offered excursions or just get out and walk. The Central Station is a couple of blocks from where we were docked and you can get anywhere in the Netherlands from that station. Also, most locals speak perfect English. Amsterdam didn't have a lot of damage during the war so the history is everywhere. Add world-class museums and you can't go wrong. As for excursions, my husband did the tour to the reconstructed village and thought it was very touristy but might have been interesting for anyone who knew nothing about the Netherlands and wanted an overview. We both went to the Muiderslot Castle and loved that tour. It is a really historic, traditional castle that really gave you an idea how people lived before the comforts of modern time conveniences. Anyone who has never been to Amsterdam before has to take the Canal Boat tour - it is touristy but the only way to really see all that Amsterdam has to offer.
