Full description
Cruise for 1 hour on the IJ river and notice how Amsterdam changes. Pass awe-inspiring modern buildings, sense old buildings disappear, and see new jewels like the EYE Film Museum arise. In summer, maybe even encounter impressive cruise ships at the shipyard. In a relaxed atmosphere, tuck into the all-you-can-eat pancake buffet. The buffet includes freshly baked natural, apple, and bacon pancakes, and all sorts of delights to garnish your pancakes, like cheese, ham, fruits, jams, and eggs. Gluten-free and lactose-free options are also available. Especially for young guests, there is a large playroom filled with balls in the hold of the boat so they don't get bored. The departure destination is easily accessible by taking the free ferry from Central Station.

It was amazing, we are so many pancakes and there were so many different toppings. We only stopped because we couldn’t eat anymore. The cruise was nice, it’s not a guided tour. You can buy drinks on board. The staff were so friendly. I thought it was a canal cruise, but it was me not reading it properly! Still worth the money. The food was good quality

I expected to be sitting on the boat outside exposed to the elements with just one pancake per person, but the boat is really nice inside and we were able to get up and get 4 big pancakes (one at a time) in the duration of the cruise. And the pancakes were very nice.

3.5 / 5 stars. Pancakes were delicious with a wide variety of toppings. Inadequate directions were problematic; unfortunately, we were unable to reach support. Due to the "children's paradise" (ball pool) it was sometimes a bit louder. Staff was super friendly. Drink prices a bit expensive but that is usually not to be expected otherwise
