Passenger Terminal Amsterdam is an ideal location for a stopover in Amsterdam or as the starting point for a European tour or a cruise to the Baltic or Arctic. PTA boasts 600 metres of quay, and Amsterdam is just 25 km (14 nautical miles) from the open sea. The sight of large cruise ships or naval vessels delicately manoeuvring in or out of Amsterdam’s city centre is a memorable one. Smaller private vessels can also make use of PTA.
