I took Celebrity Cruises' Galaxy Cruise to the Baltic in September 2001 and stayed at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre for four nights before the cruise. I had seen Amsterdam as a teenager but really wanted to see it all this time....and that I did. Amsterdam is a FANTASTIC city and so full of history. Be sure to not miss Anne Frank's Home and the "World's Narrowest House", just for starters. Bus transportation is very simple, the people very nice and friendly and every type of restaurant you can imagine. I took a cab to the ship and it only took 10 minutes.

Unless you are in line at 0600 forget Anne Frank's house. The lines are a mile long. (No Joke.)

What I liked the best was the Heineken Experience Tour (free beer!) and the canal boat tour.
