    Cruise calling at Ijmuiden

    We will be sailing with MSC on Baltic cruise in May 2014. Our first port is Ijmuiden and I am wondering if anyone has taken a train into Amsterdam and if so was it easy to do? Arriving in port at 10:30 and sailing at 18:00.
    Many thanks

    I have travelled from Amsterdam to The DFDS Ferry and did not find it easy. I do not know how far away the Cruise ships dock from the ferry bit.

    IJmuiden - Amsterdam train connections

    Train services are a less convenient method of transport for getting to Amsterdam city centre. The nearest Train station is Haarlem Central, you can reach this station by bus from IJmuiden. First take bus ‘74’ to ‘Plein 1945’ and then at this point take bus ‘75’ to ‘Haarlem Centraal’.

    I used the Flying ferry from Amsterdam to Pontplein then caught a bus 82 outside, even that meant a 10 min walk to the ferry terminal

    I Believe that the flying ferry is ceasing operation at the end of 2013

      Many thanks - I thought it would be reasonably difficult - I will investigate possible other more local places that may be of interest.
