Riverboat Prins van Oranje

The Prins van Oranje riverboat is a sailing monument. It was built at the NDSM shipyard in 1908 as a passenger steamer for Alkmaar Packet. Fully restored to its former glory in 2012, the Prins van Oranje exudes the richness and grandeur of classic cruise ships such as the Titanic and the Olympic. This is the perfect setting to sail the Dutch waters in a beautiful ambience and luxurious décor, whilst enjoying excellent service and 5-star catering. 

There are many sailing options available. You can board in Volendam or near Zaanse Schans and enjoy superb cuisine while sailing to Amsterdam, passing characteristic wooden houses, mills and industrial buildings. Or sail along picturesque old Dutch villages and towns around the IJsselmeer. Exploring the Amsterdam islands, Passenger Terminal, Houthavens and the neighbourhoods of Amsterdam from the water will certainly offer you a wonderful, scenic journey as well.

About us Arno and Boen

Their love for the beauty of the city and their dream to offer an unrivalled experience on the Amsterdam canals was the reason for Boen and Arno to end their careers in advertising and management and founded Cruise with US. Their first purchase was the Valentijn in 2001. During its restoration, they discovered that this was a special vessel with a fascinating history. After peeling away the old layers of paint a ship number appeared, which indicated that the riverboat dated back to 1913 and was built at the Amstel Shipyard in Amsterdam. Upon this discovery, the City of Amsterdam decided to recognise the Valentijn as an official monument.

In 2003, Arno and Boen introduced r live cooking sessions aboard the Valentijn. In 2005 they started building the Soeverein, a larger sister vessel, which was launched in 2007. In 2012, Arno and Boen became the proud owners of the historical Prins van Oranje riverboat.

Today Rederij Cruise With Us has become a well-known culinary concept, renowned for its excellent Indonesian and international cuisine. Several Michelin-Starred chefs have cooked on board.
