Quick Details

Boarding point: Voormeer 26F in Alkmaar (near the Accijnstoren). 600 meters walk from the Cheese Market on Waagplein.


A boat trip full of old Dutch games with accompanying snacks.

Party ship ‘Amalia’ from Alkmaar Cruises is 600 meters from the Cheese Market, ready for a typical Dutch cruise of 90 minutes. When boarding you will be welcomed with a Dutch piece of apple pie with whipped cream and a cup of coffee or tea.

We sail across the North Holland Canal towards the Alkmaardermeer where you have a view of the typical polder landscape. During the cruise you can play various old Dutch games such as shuffleboard, nail pooping, cookie eating, can toss, don’t annoy people, 4 in a row, donkey poke, mikado, checkers, ring toss, etc, etc! You can of course also sit quietly on the sun deck and look out over the polder or order an eggnog or another drink of your choice at the bar.

Between the games, our sailor walks around with the Dutch snack board filled with cheese & sausage while old-fashioned Dutch music is played in the background.
