Why do I have to book my ticket for a specific time slot?
You buy your ticket in advance and for a specific time so that you are assured of a place on board and you do not have to queue. This way we keep the moorings and shops as empty as possible and we can guarantee your safety. Make sure you are at your boarding location at the specified time, so that the boarding process can be carried out as efficiently as possible.
Do I also need to purchase a ticket for young children?
Yes. Children between 0 and 3 years old cruise for free. Still, when you book, we want you to make a reservation for them. This is completely free of charge, of course. This way we know exactly how many people we have on board and we ensure a safe day out.
Can I use my Club van Elf-pass and Amsterdam Pass?
No. Unfortunately it is not possible to use the Club of Eleven Pass. The Amsterdam Pass isn't valid as well. As soon as this is possible again, you will be notified!
