After waking up feeling relaxed and refreshed, head over to Explorer’s Kitchen and fill up on our complimentary breakfast buffet. Choose from around 40 dishes including bacon, sausage, eggs and more, plus lighter options like cereal, toast, fruit or freshly baked bread.

You will arrive in Ijmuiden at 09:45 CET, where a transfer bus will take you directly to the city centre. Spend the day exploring Amsterdam and soaking up the festive atmosphere. Wander the cobbled streets, take a tour along the canals, or treat yourself to some local dishes. There’s nothing like a warm stroopwafel to celebrate the end of the year!

After a day of exploring, our bus transfer will pick you up at 15:30 CET and take you back to the port. The ship will set sail again at approximately 19:00 CET for Amsterdam’s canal where you can once again admire the beauty of the city.

There will be a lavish New Year’s Eve gala buffet waiting for you to enjoy after a day of exploring. Once you’re feeling refuelled, head over to the Columbus bar and start your New Year’s Eve party! With live entertainment, you can dance your way into New Year, and celebrate the turn of the clock with a complimentary glass of fizz.

When you’re ready to retire, head down to your en suite cabin, and treat yourself to a few hours of sleep!
