What is the difference between all different festival cruises?
The Amsterdam Light Festival Cruise is the standard Amsterdam Light Festival cruise.
The Amsterdam Light Festival Open Boat Tour takes the same route as the regular cruise, but on an open boat. From the Open Boat you will even have a better view at the art works. Blankets will be available aboard.
With the Amsterdam Light Festival Cruise + LOOKOUT you combine your visit to the festival with a visit to the A'DAM LOOKOUT. After your visit to the LOOKOUT the boat will pick you up in front of the LOOKOUT.
With the Amsterdam Light Festival Cruise + This is Holland you combine your visit to the festival with a visit to This is Holland. After your visit to the This is Holland, the boat will pick you up in front of the LOOKOUT (Next to This is Holland).
All four cruises take the official Amsterdam Light Festival route. You can buy tickets online or in our shops.

I’d like to book a Cheese and Wine Cruise, Dinner Cruise or Cocktail Cruise during the Amsterdam Light Festival. Why are prices for these cruises higher than usual?
During the Amsterdam Light Festival we are also operating all of our regular evening cruises.
During the Amsterdam Light Festival, our other evening cruises (except for the Pizza Cruise) also sail through the festival area. A small surcharge benefiting the Amsterdam Light Festival is added to these cruises.
