Get married on board

Getting married on board and saying "I do" while on a cruise is truly unique. It's possible on several of our ships for groups of up to 65 guests.If you wish to have your ceremony on board, then you should first reserve a day and time slot with the Burgerzaken (Civil Affairs) Department of Stadsdeel Centrum (the Centre District). Indicate that you want to marry aboard one of the ships of Amsterdam Boats and discuss all necessary details with the District, such as the boarding location for the marriage official. Once you have a final reservation on a specific boat, you then need to inform the city so they can mark your wedding day option as a definite booking.

Example 3.5 hour program:

  • 1:00 pm Welcoming of ceremony guests with coffee and tea at the Hermitage
  • 2:00 pm Start of ceremony with vows under the Skinny Bridge
  • 3:00 pm Celebration of the marriage with a glass of champagne and cutting of the wedding cake
  • 3:30 pm Reception with drinks of your choice and a nice selection of cold and hot appetizers
  • 4:30 pm End of program

Very likely and it was a great experience with fantastic staff
