Our beautiful ship The Somoya is moored in the heart of the city’s famous Eastern Docklands, internationally known for it’s ‘Super Dutch’ architecture, wide open harbours and wicked sunsets. The neighborhood is also ideal given its proximity to the infamous historical city centre as well as the cultural hotchpotch of Eastern Amsterdam with its colorful markets and exotic food. The docklands themselves offer a variety of good restaurants, hip bars and cool cafes with great views, as well as shops and supermarkets within walking distance. A short bike ride away is our Gooyen windmill, complete with real dutch brewery, renowned for its excellent IJ bier. Getting to all our famous museums, infamous neighbourhoods & must-see sights from the Somoya is a breeze, especially on our free bicycles, as Amsterdam is an international village, in size as well as atmosphere.
