Whether there is a complete plan or just an image of what the cruise could look like: we are there to shape your plan.

Just imagine: a beautiful autumn evening in Amsterdam, aboard our saloon boat Roos. Canal houses slowly pass by while you enjoy a tasty dinner with matching wines. Jazz music softly plays, the hostess refills your glass and you enjoy the view of the beautifully lit city.

We outline a few examples of what is possible at Rederij Nassau. Do you have a completely different idea? Please contact us, we like to think along.

workshop of proeverij

cocktailsop het water

Genieten van een cocktail is een feestje op zich, maar nóg leuker wordt het op het water. Tijdens een cocktail workshop gaan de handjes uit de mouwen en gaat het gezelschap – onder begeleiding van een professionele bartender – zelf een de slag om de lekkerste cocktails te shaken. Liever alleen proeven? Kies dan voor een cocktailproeverij en leer meer over smaken en combinaties.

Een alcoholvrije workshop of proeverij behoort ook tot de mogelijkheden.

volume is not a problem

silent disco

Fancy a party on board? During a silent disco the feet will be on the dancefloor! The municipality is imposing increasingly strict requirements on the playing of amplified music, which is why a silent disco is the perfect solution. The headphones are fitted with disco lights for an extra festive effect. Do you all dance to the same song, or are there different music channels? The choice is yours and with a phone or laptop with Spotify you can put on the music you want. A live DJ is also a possibility.

A silent disco on the Amsterdam canals is not only perfect for a party, but also as a unique teambuilding activity.


Meetings /Team building

The monthly team meeting yields much more by getting together outside the office walls. A different location excites creativity and brings people together. Let us organize your business day entirely – including a nutritious lunch and plenty of coffee and tea all day – and you can focus on what’s important to you at the time.

Get surprised by our vinologist

Wine tastingthrough the canals

Life is too short to drink bad wine. During a wine tasting on board of one of the boats of Rederij Nassau, you will learn more about this fascinating product. The tasting is completely customized, so it’s up to you whether you want to focus on different grape varieties, wineries or sparkling wines, for example. A vinologist explains everything while the group tastes and learns.

To make this happening complete, you can choose to serve tasty snacks. Extra fun: as a souvenir of this special trip you will receive a bottle of wine of your choice.


cocktailson the water

Enjoying a cocktail is a party in itself, but it becomes even more fun on the water. During a cocktail workshop you can roll up your sleeves and start shaking the tastiest cocktails yourself, under the supervision of a professional bartender. Prefer to taste alone? Then opt for a cocktail tasting and learn more about flavors and combinations.

A non-alcoholic workshop or tasting is also possible.

ultimate feeling of luxury

private dining

The ultimate feeling of luxury: a chef at your disposal for the entire afternoon or evening. During a dinner with a private chef, you can choose to have the dishes served out or in buffet form (a so-called ‘walking dinner’). Private dining is ideal for both large and small groups. A guaranteed special evening!

You should also consider the ‘dining deluxe’ option, whereby culinary dishes are served on board from well-known hotels and restaurants during the cruise. A tour along a number of beautiful places, but then over the water.

a special last journey

funeralon the water

A funeral on the water is a special final journey. We work closely with funeral directors to make funeral ceremonies as pleasant and memorable as possible.

Options include:
we like to think along

product presentationor -activation

Have you ever thought about doing a product presentation or activation on the water? The location is memorable and the possibilities are endless. We can completely transform our boats into the mood of the brand, including branding of the hull, windows and interior.

The event for Essie nail polish is a great example: along the way the boat stopped to let ladies on board and provide them with a fresh manicure. All creative ideas are welcome and we are happy to think along to make the presentation as personal and unique as possible.

official wedding location in Amsterdam

Weddingon the water

Experience an unforgettable wedding day on the water. Just imagine: a beautiful couple reading their vows while the boat sails under the Skinny Bridge. Well-dressed guests toasting on the brand new couple with champagne, or a swinging party to celebrate their love.

Official wedding location

All of Rederij Nassau’s boats are official wedding locations, which means that a ceremony on board is possible. Our boats can also be used as a unique transfer from the wedding location to a restaurant.
Consider also the reception or dinner (eg with private chef) to take place on board. We would like to give you the best day of your life!

We would like to invite you to come and see our boats without any obligation. A visit does not oblige you to anything and may give you interesting ideas.
