SPRING IN HOLLAND CRUISE SUMMARY

Tulips? Holland! Join us and see for yourself in the spring, when the Keukenhof park comes alive with blossoming flowers of every conceivable colour and shape. Originally a 15th-century kitchen garden, during the past 72 years the Keukenhof has been reimagined to become a world-famous attraction. This itinerary also includes a visit to Amsterdam, for a round trip along its famous canals past traditional town houses of the “Golden Age”. Northern Holland is renowned for its idyllic beauty and quintessentially Dutch windmills, as you will see for yourself during an excursion to the region. Cruise the inland waters of the Markermeer and Ijssel lakes, to the bustling seaport of Rotterdam and tranquil Nijmegen, on a voyage for all the senses.
