The original rigging, teak woodwork and sensational sails are impressive and the cabins have the atmosphere of an old sailing ship. Don’t be fooled though, the Stad Amsterdam offers passengers every kind of twenty-first century comfort and cabins offer all the luxuries of a modern hotel.

The hospitality is second to none, with the crew serving delicious food and drinks freshly prepared by the chef in his galley. It’s the best of both worlds.
