Product Image
Admire blooming views on your springtime cruise in Holland and Belgium. Before your cruise, spend a night in the colorful city of Amsterdam. Enjoy a guided canal cruise through the iconic city’s stately waterways of the Golden Age before embarking on your tulip season cruise.

In Arnhem, tour its WWII Airborne Museum commemorating the brave battle of 1944. In Maastricht, go for a sightseeing tour of the old cobblestoned university town.

On to Belgium for a sightseeing tour of medieval Namur and free time to browse its ancient architecture, charming cafes, and bookshops. In Liège, see the ancient quarters of the "Fiery City" as well as its romantic streets, steps, and tiny alleyways. Next, you’ll explore the city of Antwerp-birthplace of the master painter Peter Paul Rubens. Stroll its cobbled lanes amid 16th-century guildhall houses and the cathedral’s stunning altarpiece paintings by the famous artist. In Brussels, you’ll find landmark buildings and a collection of cafes and shops on your guided tour. Visit Ghent, for stunning Flemish artwork in St. Bavo’s Cathedral. Visit Bossuit’s Flanders Fields Museum with moving battlefield memorials.

Explore Middelburg’s grand history in the Dutch East India Company. Visit the fascinating Flood Museum to hear and see the stories of the flood of 1953 . Continue your cruise through Kinderdijk-where windmills built in 1740 helped the iconic structures become a symbol of Holland. See the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam, and the quintessential Dutch towns of Zaandam and Haarlem. Your cruise through Holland and Belgium returns to Amsterdam to conclude your colorful cruise!
