The Dutch (as well as the French) are well-known for their high-quality cheese, so it's no surprise that the island is home to this little store with an outstanding selection. Just a short walk from the cruise ships in downtown Phillipsburg, the Amsterdam Cheese and Liquor Store make an excellent final stop before boarding the vessel, which also sells ice cream, Dutch shoes, cheese knives, stroopwafels (think waffle wafers), licorice, and a selection of fine wines and local rum. Wheels of gouda are the popular item but the friendly staff lets visitors try numerous samples of cheese so they can pick their favorite, with wine pairings as well.
