Amsterdam Passenger Terminal is improving its waterside facilities to accommodate growing numbers of ocean-going cruise ships. The quay space has already been extended by 5,000 sqm and two new computer-steered gangways Seaport Boarding Bridges are to be installed. This year 110 cruise ships are expected to dock in Amsterdam, five more than last year. Passengers from one cruise ship spend an estimated 450,000 in Amsterdam during their stopover. The Passenger Terminal building is also hosting an exhibition of ten artworks by Rembrandt as part of the Rembrandt Recycling Project, an initiative aiming to bring the Dutch master to the people on the 400th anniversary of his birth.
