Bicycles like you read about. We saw bikes in every city we visited, but I've never seen more than we saw in Amsterdam. We stayed an extra day to see Amsterdam after the cruise was over. It's a city loaded with canals which reminded us of Venice. We visited the Anne Frank house, which is a very sobering experience, but a must see. We also took a boat ride on the canals of this beautiful, bustling city which provided an additional perspective on our short stay.
