Both activities were fab. We booked our date and time beforehand for the ice bar as you need to. The river cruise you can use any day or time so no need to worry about getting from one to the other as they are some distance away. We did them on different days. They are both experiences I would recommend you try. The canal cruise was interesting and you can learn a thing or two from the audio guide.

The combined purchase leads you to believe the two attractions are linked. We attended the meeting point to learn that if we went on the cruise first we would missed the ice bar slot. The ice bar was some distance away (15min) tram ride. However, staff we in a position to rearrange times. Both attractions were good and good value for money.

Both the Canal Cruise and IceBar were fun. I gave 4 stars only because it wasn’t anything that blew me away. The cruise was informative and the IceBar was indeed...cold, but those were pretty much the highlights. In both events, I felt pretty cramp, being a bigger guy, but nothing unbearable. I think the IceBar is probably more enjoyable in the late-late night hours with a group of friends after having a few rounds already before arriving. The drinks inside the IceBar was pretty much Heineken or different flavored vodka. The better options were at the outside bar. The Canal cruise was nice, and straightforward. Nice audio guide as you go through the canal. And a few jokes from the host.
