The boat

The cozy river cruiser De Nassau offers a home away from home for about 67 passengers. The ship has been partly renovated and restyled in the winter of 2018/19. All of the 33 cabins are well-equipped and perfect for a good night’s’ sleep. In the large salon on the upper deck, with large panoramic windows around, you will find the restaurant, bar and lounge area. This is a great spot for some serious relaxing, drinking and eating after a day on the pedals! Unless there is sun, then you should go to the partially covered sun deck, where chairs and sun loungers invite for a stay.
