We have collected some of the most frequently asked questions about Cruise Port IJmuiden, and linked some relevant websites you can use to plan your travelling in the low lands.


There are two cruise ports in IJmuiden: the Felison Terminal and the Felison Cruise Terminal.
  • Distance from the Felison Terminal to the city centre: approx. 2.5 km.
  • Distance from the Felison Cruise Terminal to the city centre: approx. 3.7 km.
You can check which port/berth your cruise ship is arriving at here or at the official website.
Yes. You can read more about the public transportation to and from the two cruise terminals here.
No, not anymore. If you want to use public transportation, you can only take the bus in IJmuiden.
Yes, there is a long term parking (unsheltered) on the premises of the Felison Cruise Terminal. It’s recommended to make a reservation in advance. The fare is Euro 15,00 per day.
Yes, there are taxis available at the terminals on the days that cruise ships are in port. Normally there are taxis waiting in front of the cruise terminals but because of great activity at the quays, you must expect some waiting time. You can also call for a taxi yourself and we recommend the following taxi companies:
  • Taxi Van der Valk +31 255 538000
  • Taxi Marcus +31 255 516000
  • Taxi Centrale IJmuiden +31 6 57800000
Yes, it can be expensive! The fare (one way!) may easily be around 100 Euro or even more but of course you can try to negotiate a bit with the taxi drivers, before taking the ride. Keep in mind that the larger taxi’s (minivans and vans; 5-8 passengers) are more expensive.
Not always. It depends on the cruise line; Saga Cruises for example offers this service for free to their guests. If there is a shuttle service, it will be announced on board the ship.
No, you can’t, if you are not lucky enough to be invited by -for example- a tour operator. If you’re not on the official visitors list, you’ll not even get near the ship.
Free city maps and brochures about various interesting places are available at the information desk at the terminals.
No, unfortunately not. For an ATM you have to go to the centre of IJmuiden.
