Thursday 2nd April

Amsterdam

Our cruise commences in the unique 17th century capital of The Netherlands. In the heart of the city, on the Keizersgracht, is the former residence of the Amsterdam regent family, Van Loon. This extremely wealthy family purchased the house in 1884 which has since been converted into a living museum. Historical photographs, paintings, personal souvenirs and documents tell the history of the Van Loon family who co-founded the Dutch East India Company, held various positions in the Amsterdam city government and were later ennobled by King William I. After admiring the riches of one of the finest canal houses of the city we enjoy a private reception, in the delightful surroundings of the formal garden. The National Maritime Museum invites visitors to discover how the sea has shaped Dutch culture and reveals 500 years of maritime history. Built in 1656, the former national naval warehouse was once used by the Dutch navy to store sails, ropes, weapons and ammunition. Included in the larg

Friday 3rd April

Utrecht / Keukenhof Gardens

No visit to Holland in spring would be complete without a visit to Keukenhof Gardens to experience the gorgeous views of blooming Dutch tulips and other flowers for which the country is renowned. The world-famous gardens at Keukenhof encompass over 70 acres of gardens and parkland and are a feast for the senses. Here, we admire the spectacular displays of over seven million bulbs in bloom and over 80 different varieties of trees, set amongst shimmering lakes and beautiful water gardens. The gardens and pavilions show a fantastic collection of tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, orchids, roses, carnations, irises, lilies and many other flowers. You will be overwhelmed by a spectacle of colours and perfumes.

Saturday 4th April

Schoonhoven / Kinderdijk

The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kinderdijk, with its 19 historic windmills, plays host to our visit this morning. Boasting the largest concentration of windmills in the world, and dating back to the 1740’s, they are kept in operating condition, forming an iconic Dutch scene. The windmills of Kinderdijk were built to keep the low-lying lands of the Alblasserwaard dry, and here we discover how the Dutch have been using water to their benefit for over 1000 years. After lunch, we embark on a walking tour of Schoonhoven with its preserved medieval parts and delightful canals. Schoonhoven is renowned for its silver tradition and has been home to gold and silversmiths since the Middle Ages. We have the opportunity to discover more of this traditional art at the Dutch Silver Museum.

Sunday 5th April

Rotterdam

Known as Manhattan on the Meuse, due to its impressive skyline, Rotterdam has a fantastic reputation for architecture. The city centre was largely rebuilt after World War II and the buildings, skyscrapers and bridges have been designed with a daring, forward-thinking approach. The Erasmus Bridge (referred to locally as ‘The Swan’), the towering Euromast and the modern skyscrapers along the Wilhelminakade pier are particularly striking examples of the distinctive architectural style. Rotterdam’s maritime history dates back several centuries and has shaped the city as it exists today. Home to the largest port in Europe, Rotterdam’s harbour and seafaring legacy is best experienced from the water. We board an iconic Spido boat, to journey along the most fascinating parts of the River Maas and Port of Rotterdam through the historic shipyards and docks of Rotterdam’s Scheepvaartkwartier (maritime district). Aboard a Spido, we are also perfectly positioned to admire the city ce

Monday 6th April

Ghent / Bruges

From Ghent we travel to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bruges, one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe where we board a canal boat to discover why the city is often called ‘the Venice of the North’. Our picturesque city tour of the historic centre encompasses charming medieval step-roofed houses and imposing churches, reflected in the still waters of the canals, as well as the main market square with its 83 metre high 13th century belfry. Bruges is the chocolate city par excellence. The city has more than 50 passionate chocolatiers and is a place where established names and fresh up-and-coming talent complement each other. Here, we can sample the traditional chocolate craft which is considered to be the best in the world. Alternatively, you may decide to enjoy an afternoon at leisure exploring the delights of this most photogenic city.

Tuesday 7th April

Ghent

After breakfast, the beautifully restored medieval centre of Ghent, one of the oldest cities in Belgium with a history dating back to the Stone Age, awaits. The old city is a picturesque array of alleyways, rimmed by quaint steeple-roofed buildings running along pretty canals. Our tour takes in St. Bavo’s Cathedral which houses an impressive number of art treasures, including a major work by Rubens and the world-famous Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, painted by Hubert and Jan van Eyck around 1432. We depart from Ghent at lunchtime and spend our final afternoon sailing the Belgian waterways, bound for Antwerp.

Thursday 9th April

Antwerp

Spending the day in Antwerp, Belgium’s largest port and second largest city, we explore the diamond capital of the world. A guided tour of the city centre introduces us to its medieval heart, allowing us to admire the Renaissance Town Hall, the Market Square, Brabo Fountain and the unique Gothic Cathedral of Our Lady which houses four works by Peter Paul Rubens. Belgium is the fatherland of quality beer brewing, creating a huge variety of different styles. It is also the spiritual home of Trappist beer as it can claim 6 of the 11 breweries in the world, where Trappist monks lovingly craft, to support the charitable works of their monastery. With such a rich history, Belgium is a must for any true beer lover wanting to sample the delights of regional craft ales. After lunch, we enter the printing office and house of the Plantin Moretus family. The original residence and workshop of this influential publishing dynasty offers a unique insight into the history of books, the art of

Friday 10th April

Brussels

Historic Brussels, capital of Belgium, principal seat of the Belgian Royal Family, and capital of the European Union, is full of hidden architectural treasures. Art Deco facades and regal 19th century mansions contrast with the city’s medieval core, where the Grand Place is considered one of the world’s most beautiful squares. Chocolate making in Belgium has been a major industry since the 19th century. Today, it forms an important part of the nation’s economy and culture. We conclude our tour of the city by savouring one of Brussel’s most precious jewels, created by one of the innumerable master chocolatiers.

Saturday 11th April

Maastricht

Maastricht is one of the oldest cities in Holland, as you will discover when strolling through the historic inner city. Until the second half of the 19th century, Maastricht was a fortified city; strong walls and bunkers had to protect it against attacks. Churches, city walls, monumental merchant houses and big squares merge seamlessly with a wide variety of architectural styles ranging from Roman excavations to modern designs. Just outside Maastricht, various vineyards grace the slopes of the Limburg hills. The vineyards of Maastricht are some of the oldest in Holland, initially planted in Roman times. Hoeve Nekum has been home to the Bollen family since 1934 and the first vines were planted on their farmlands in 1988. We sample the prize-winning white and red wines, produced from the lime-rich soil which gives the wines a fresh and fruity style with a distinct mineral taste.

Sunday 12th April

Cuijk / Nuenen

Learn how Vincent van Gogh lived and worked, and what inspired him during his first years as a painter at the Van Gogh Village of Nuenen. In 1883, at 30 years of age, he returned to live with his parents in Nuenen and stayed with them for two years. During this period, he focused entirely on his art, and created over one quarter of his total works in this place and period. He was inspired by the beautiful landscape and the simple life of people living near Nuenen, recording both on his canvases. We spend the afternoon relaxing on board as we sail the scenic Dutch waterways to Schoonhoven.

Monday 13th April

Schoonhoven / Gouda

Gouda cheese is famous throughout the world and is now one of Holland’s biggest exports, despite its humble origins from this picturesque city in the province of Zuid-Holland. Today 60% of Dutch cheese is produced in the region surrounding the city of Gouda, also known as Cheese Valley. The Cheese and Craft Museum, located in the Gouda Weigh House, reveals local history, tells how the cheese is made and how the products have been weighed and traded for centuries. Our walking tour of Gouda’s centuries-old historic centre features splendid monuments, such as the Sint Janskerk. This church, measuring 123 metres long, is the longest church in Holland and is world-famous for its Gouda windows. Another must-see is the old City Hall, a beautiful monument dating back to 1450. Be sure to note the carillon on the right-side façade, whose mechanical dolls come to life to put on a wonderful show at two minutes past every half and full hour.

Tuesday 14th April

Amsterdam / Keukenhof

No visit to Holland in spring would be complete without a visit to Keukenhof Gardens, to experience the gorgeous views of blooming Dutch tulips and other flowers for which the country is renowned. The world-famous gardens at Keukenhof encompass over 70 acres of gardens and parkland and are a feast for the senses. Here, we admire the spectacular displays of over seven million bulbs in bloom and over 80 different varieties of trees, set amongst shimmering lakes and beautiful water gardens. The gardens and pavilions show a fantastic collection of tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, orchids, roses, carnations, irises, lilies and many other flowers.

Voyage from the Danube Delta

The lower course of the Danube flows through the dramatic, narrow gorge of the Iron Gate to the Black Sea.  Just before reaching the sea, it forms the second largest and best preserved of Europe’s deltas with 2,200 square miles of rivers, canals, marshes, tree-fringed lakes and reed islands. The Danube Delta is a wildlife enthusiast’s paradise as the maze of canals, bordered by thatch, willows and oaks offers the perfect breeding ground for the 300 species of birds which make the delta their home. The banks of the Danube, lined with castles and fortresses, formed the boundary between great empires, and its waters served as a vital commercial highway between nations. Our voyage takes us through Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia and Hungary, to explore some of the ancient settlements and imperial cities which have been built along this great river.
