Tom/shanghai, thank you for the great links. We will be embarking in Amsterdam this summer, along with our 13-year-old son. So, although the red light district will likely not be on our list, it will still be difficult to narrow down what to see/do. The Anne Frank house is a definite, as is a canal boat tour, and lots of walking around. We'll have two days pre-cruise and one day post-cruise to enjoy...and I am having as much fun researching Amsterdam as I am our ports of call of the cruise.
