  3. Day 3 Antwerp

    It may be the diamond capital of the world, but Antwerp is also known for a number of other sought-after cultural gems, including Golden Age art, Belgian beer, waffles, pralines and fries, chocolate and more. Your walking discovery tour of Antwerp features the City Hall, Market Square and the UNESCO-designated Cathedral of Our Lady, which houses four extraordinary works by one of the city’s most beloved sons—Peter Paul Rubens. At the old riverside dock area, there is a 19th-century warehouse that has been transformed into a restaurant and brewery where you can partake in a tasting of Pakhuis’ unfiltered blonde beer.

    Antwerp walking discovery tour with Belgian treats
    It may be the diamond capital of the world, but Antwerp is also known for a number of other gems—maybe just not of the rock variety. Step onto the streets of Antwerp and take in the Golden Age art, sip Belgian beer and taste waffles, pralines, fries and chocolates that make Antwerp, Antwerp. This walking discovery tour takes you through the sights, sounds, smells, and yes, even tastes of City Hall, the Market Square and the UNESCO-designated Cathedral of Our Lady, which houses four extraordinary works by one of the city’s most beloved sons—Peter Paul Rubens. Stop by the old riverside dock to experience a converted 19th-century warehouse that now stands as a restaurant and brewery and taste the local Pakhuis unfiltered blonde beer. Continue on and enjoy tastings of other sorts—a Brussels waffle, local spirit or even the catch of the day as you journey past the Steen Castle, City Hall and the Brabo Fountain, and take an inside visit of the Cathedral all as you walk through the Groenplaats square with its sublime views of the Art Deco Boerentoren.

    meals Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  4. Day 4 Maastricht

    Your first stop in the Netherlands—Maastricht—is a city with more than 1,670 national heritage sites, some of which can be seen on your Old Town walking discovery tour. And not only that, but it’s known as one of the most beautiful and romantic cities of Holland and loved for its convivial lifestyle and historic center, which has long played a strategic role in European politics. Or you can choose to make a pilgrimage to the 65-acre Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial, the final resting place of 8,301 U.S. soldiers who perished during the Second World War. The cemetery is the only American military center in the Netherlands and sits near the famous Cologne-Boulogne highway that was constructed by the Romans for Caesar to use for his conquests. Choose to explore the beguiling banks of the Muese River, the second oldest river in the world.

    Featured Excursion: “Let’s Go” Maas River biking

    Choice of Maastricht’s walking tour or Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial visit

    “Let’s Go” Maas River biking
    Maastricht is the oldest city in The Netherlands and has earned the nicknames “Culinary capital of The Netherlands” and “Europe’s smallest metropolis,” meaning life in Maastricht is full of simple luxuries and what the French would call “joie de vivre.” Part of what makes Maastricht unique is its rich history and change in control. In its existence, Maastricht has been influenced by the Romans, the Spanish, the French and finally the Dutch. Maastricht is just what you’d imagine an old city to be: narrow cobblestone streets, ancient fortifications and town houses from the 17th century. On the other side, in the Wyck-Céramique area, you’ll find all that plus an urban planner’s dream—a mix of contemporary apartment buildings and modern offices. Hop on a bicycle and see the city’s varied past and where other cultures’ influence has remained to this day.

    meals Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  5. Day 5 Cuijk, Heusden

    Follow in Van Gogh’s footsteps today as you stroll through Nuenen, where the artist once lived and painted The Potato Eaters. After lunch in an old water mill, which was even painted by Van Gogh, choose to walk or cycle through Heusden, where you can observe a working mill, learn to make bread at a local bakery, explore the remnants of a 13th-century fortress, and marvel at the memorial in front of town hall dedicated to the Huesden Town Hall Massacre.

    Featured Excursions:
    Van Gogh “Village Day” in Nuenen with a country lunch at the old mill
    Heusden “Village Day”

    meals Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  6. Day 6 Schoonhoven (Kinderdijk)

    Bike around the town of Schoonhoven, best known for its silversmiths, abundant clockmakers and quaint shop-lined avenues. Or venture forth to Kinderdijk to see its 19 well-preserved, UNESCO-designated windmills that were originally erected in the 1700s. Learn about the historical significance of these engineering marvels in the Netherlands’ long quest to hold back the sea. If you wish, you’ll have an opportunity to venture inside one of these iconic structures and marvel at Holland’s largest concentration of old windmills.

    Choice of Kinderdijk windmills or “Let’s Go” biking the dams and windmills

    Kinderdijk windmills
    At one time 10,000 windmills operated in the Netherlands, pumping water away from low-lying lands (much of the country is below sea level) and creating what are known as polders—arable land reclaimed from the water. Though the mighty windmill has been replaced by newer technology, you can see how effective the system was in Kinderdijk, where a group of 19 windmills erected in the 18th century still function. Most are ground-sail windmills (meaning their sails nearly touch the ground as they whirl) and each one was carefully situated to make sure one did not block another’s wind. Each windmill moves the water a little farther, pumping it from field to canal, from canal to river. Climb the steep stairs of a mill and look out over the quiet fields that would be underwater were it not for the ingenuity of the Dutch. (Of course, you can simply admire it from the outside. But if you do that, you won’t see how the mill keeper’s family lived.) These mills are kept in working order partly as a backup in case modern technology fails, and they were used as recently as WWII when there was no fuel to keep newer pumping stations working.

    Note: If docking in Kinderdijk is not possible, the excursion will be arranged by motorcoach from Rotterdam.

    “Let’s Go” biking the dams and windmills
    Get your blood pumping as you take in the majestic sights from Schoonhoven to Kinderdijk. The 11-mile ride takes less than two hours to complete and will take you along the Lek River through provincial towns, past gorgeous flowers in bloom, and finally on to the magnificent 18th-century windmills. See the wooden giants up close, learn about the history and technology of the area and smile—you just biked 11 miles after all. A transfer will take you back to the ship in Kinderdijk.

    meals Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  7. Day 7 Amsterdam

    The Netherlands’ largest city, Amsterdam has been an international port and financial center for 400 years, endowing it with a lively cosmopolitan feeling to match its historic architecture. The famous Keukenhof Gardens is a 70-acre park planted with millions of tulips and other flowers—an extraordinary sight in the spring. Spend half a day here or enjoy a “Morning with the Masters” at the Amsterdam Hermitage Museum before it opens to the public for the day, followed by a breathtaking Amsterdam canal cruise.

    Choice of Half-day at Keukenhof Gardens or “Morning with the Masters” at the Amsterdam Hermitage Museum, with Amsterdam canal cruise

    Half-day at Keukenhof Gardens
    Rivers of blue hyacinths curve through the trees, and great drifts of brilliantly hued tulips and daffodils carpet Keukenhof’s 70-plus acres. It’s probably the most spectacular flower garden in the world, and it’s only open for a few weeks each spring. Gardeners plant some seven million bulbs on these grounds, making it a showcase for the Netherlands’ legendary flower industry. There’s more to see than just flowers, of course: There are intriguing exhibits in pavilions scattered throughout the estate, as well as concerts and activities for kids. After you’ve seen all of the vibrant blossoms and perhaps even bought some bulbs to grow at home, you’ll meet up with your guide and continue by motorcoach to the ship.

    Note: If you’re thinking about buying bulbs from Keukenhof or perhaps having items shipped home, make sure the vendor provides the documentation necessary for the import of bulbs or plants into your home country. Rules for importing flower bulbs and plants vary from country to country.

    “Morning with the Masters” at the Amsterdam Hermitage Museum, with Amsterdam canal cruise
    The doors open early to give you a crowd-free viewing of an extraordinary collection of Dutch master paintings: 30 monumental group paintings from the golden age that have been called “cousins of The Night Watch.” Drawn from both the Amsterdam Museum and the Rijksmuseum, these works have rarely been displayed because of their enormous size. The Amsterdam Hermitage, however, devotes an enormous gallery space to this exhibit, which reveals the connections and activities of Amsterdam’s power elite in the 17th century. Meet mayors and regents, colonels of the civil guard, wealthy merchants and their wives and learn something of their lives and the lives of the artists who painted these massive portraits.

    Next, you'll experience an Amsterdam canal cruise. It’s called the “Venice of the North” for a reason: Canals crisscross the heart of the old city, and bridges link some 90 islands. As the principal city in a newly independent Holland, Amsterdam was a boom town in the early 17th century, rapidly outgrowing its medieval walls. The city’s fathers responded by demolishing most of the old city and building an entirely new one, creating Europe’s first planned city. That “new” district is now 400 years old, and as you glide along the main canals, you’ll pass stately merchants’ houses built centuries ago (some of them are now house museums you can visit on your own). But the canals are not merely scenic; they are essential thoroughfares—people take water buses to work and live in houseboats along the banks—so a canal cruise also gives you a look at the busy modern city.

The trip was outstanding, but I was disappointed that there were not more of the tulip farms. The trip was advertised as "Holland and Belgium at Tulip Time", and essentially the tulips we saw were at Keukenhof Gardens.
Vacation
The service was truly outstanding, but I rated the cruise down because the bed could not be separated the least little bit. I had even called you company before the trip and was told that was possible. We were two singles traveling together and I did not enjoy the sleeping arrangement. The service, food, cleanliness, and everything else about the chip was at the highest level possible. The organization etc. was probably the best I have ever had. I especially appreciated visiting the American Cemetery in Holland Virginia FaY

Weather awful and no way predictible. Staff on board wonderful....food good but not exceptional as on my French cruise...Guess Dutch food is not exceptional? Loved the all inclusive feature..maybe it needs to be reinforced with no tipping notes in the cabins or on the reception desk.
