Zaanstad to continue improving cruise facilities
Work on the Wilhelminasluis is progressing steadily, but sometimes causes restrictions on shipping. Current obstructions can be seen on www.vaarweginformatie.nl
In the autumn of 2019, a wide platform will be built on Prins Hendrikkade I between the berth and the quay to better facilitate ships. The shore power boxes will also be placed here, so that the thick power cables do not have to be pulled tens of meters away.
The Cruissdock near the Julianabrug (Zaanse Schans) is also made suitable for smaller ships. This makes it possible to moor with smaller party ships and tour boats. The collaboration with Port of Amsterdam on the reservations is going well and the expansion of the scaffolding is being considered. The customers apparently still must get used to the new reservation blocks, for which they must register and deregister at the Port Reporting Center.
The Zaanse jetties are being used better and better, also by the smaller tour boats.
