Travelling overnight we arrived in Amsterdam this morning. Breakfast this morning and then a bus tour around the city of Amsterdam and then a canal tour on one of the canal boats, our guide pointed out all the place of interest along the canals including the houses that have had their foundations rot away over the years and now they are all crooked and leaning on the house next door, they call these the "dancing houses" and they revealed the floors and people still live in them. After the tour we had some free time to wander around having a look at the markets and all that was going on in the city centre. We were then picked up and taken back to the river ship for lunch. This afternoon everyone had free time to come and go as they pleased, lots of passengers were using this time to pack their bags as tomorrow we leave the river ship to start a new adventure to London for five nights. Tonight was out last dinner on board the river ship so everyone was saying their goodbyes to all the staff that had looked after us for the last 14 days we were onboard this beautiful ship. After dinner a few of us went on a tour of the Amsterdam red light district for a look around and I think a few people got a surprise as to what happens there. When we got back to the river ship most people had already gone to bed as tomorrow was going to be an early start.
