River trip description

Sailing ship the Amazone was built in 1929 as a motor sailor! In 1994 she was completely converted into an event ship / party ship. With its beautiful classic details and lots of woodwork, it is the ideal location for a special party. Whether you have an anniversary to celebrate, are looking for a location for your wedding or want to organize a company party with your company. We can unburden you completely and work with the best caterers.

We sail both in the Rotterdam harbors and on the Haringvliet if you want to sail. With the Rotterdam skyline in the background, your party is assured of an exceptional backdrop.

We can also arrange your family weekend on board. A short three-day trip from Rotterdam - Haringvliet, where we go sailing with your children and/or grandchildren, for example for your wedding or anniversary. Actively helping or enjoying our wine bar, everything is possible!

The mentioned price does not include overnight accommodation, but the price for a three-hour day trip / river cruise through the port of Rotterdam for a group of up to 50 people. For larger groups we apply a surcharge of Euro 250 per 25 extra persons. Sailing ship the Amazone can transport a total of 125 people.

If you want to sail and spend the night with a maximum of 13 people, we use a different rate. All this depends on your wishes with regard to catering. For overnight stays, a minimum stay of 2 nights applies. Look here for the possibilities.

River trip owner


I have been the owner of the Amazon since 2020 and we have already been able to organize many great events. For example, several people have already been married on board with us and we have already been able to organize a large number of company parties. via Book a River Cruise we now also want to focus more on combination events where, for example, we can organize a team building day or weekend together with your employees or give a special interpretation to your family weekend. Send me a message without obligation and we will look at the possibilities together and hopefully SEA YOU SOON!

also take a look at our website the Amazone Rotterdam.

    Very warm welcome from our host Show original

    Very warm welcome from our host. We were positively surprised by the size of the boat which allows us to stay with the family even if our host is present on the boat. So it's absolutely not bothersome. She was attentive and very responsive to our requests. A microwave allows you to heat up dishes, which is enough on vacation. The view of the Erasmus bridge and the buildings is magnificent especially in the evening with the lights ❤ We spent most of the time on the boat outside the cabin in the large sofas (6 or 8 people) We spent a excellent stay aboard the Amazon. Thanks to Erica for her welcome and her kindness.

    Wonderful time!

    We had a wonderful time with 4 adults, 4 kids ranging from 5 to 16, and 2 dogs on the ship. It offers a brilliant experience for anyone who’s looking for something different at the best spot in Rotterdam. There are plenty of restaurants and fun places nearby. The view from the deck is constantly changing in the course of the day (and night) and it never gets boring. Whether you want to relax and have fun on the ship or explore the city of Rotterdam, the Amazone is a great choice. The communication was great, too. Erica provided all requested information very quickly and comprehensively, including specific information about charging stations for electric cars nearby. Someone was always on the ship to help in case of questions. Marijke very kindly and patiently explained the "whats, wheres, and hows" on the ship and in person. We’ll certainly pitch Amazone again when we visit Rotterdam again.
