Full description

Cruise along the IJ river and notice how Amsterdam changes. Pass awe-inspiring modern buildings, watch old buildings disappear, and see new jewels like the EYE Film Museum arise. In the 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. Come across iconic city sights, such as REM Eiland, Centraal Station, and A'DAM Lookout.

Great little excursion. Good value for money with great pancakes and staff. Staff were attentive, friendly and helpful and explained exactly how everything worked and it was a self serve situation where you chose between bacon, plain or apple pancakes each time with what seemed like an endless amount of delicious toppings including eggs, cheese, onions, a mixture of jams and spreads and sweet toppings. Drinks were also very reasonably priced. I did notice they’d sat all families with children downstairs and wondered if this was just to keep the top floor quieter but it turns out it was because there was a hatch under the stairs that lifted to reveal a ball pit/playroom for them. Fantastic idea!! 75 minutes was a great amount of time to enjoy the food, take in the trip from your table but also spend some time outside.

A pancake flat rate on a boat trip and then a ball pool for children - as if Captain Fun had personally let his creativity run free. Pancakes (+ toppins very tasty), staff very friendly and the ball pool was the absolute highlight for our daughter. There was also a lot to discover at the pier/port.

Would have been better if they'd given little talk about the area we were cruising, more like tour style. Other than explaining about the pancakes we heard no more from them and just went down stream and back. Boat was very smooth on water which was lovely. Pancakes warm and tasty. Drinks charged extra. Tax €1.50 per person extra.
