See everything from tulips to windmills on this journey during the season of rebirth
From the canals of Amsterdam to the belfry of Bruges, you'll discover the best of the Netherlands and Belgium. Stroll through colorful acres of tulips at Keukenhof Gardens to get a sense of the Netherlands' extraordinary connection to these blooms. Then visit the 19 UNESCO-designated windmills of Kinderdijk to better understand how these mighty structures have been used to protect the Low Country from ever-rising water levels for hundreds of years.
Wander through the picture-perfect villages of Veere, Hoorn and Enkhuizen, and the enchanting outdoor Zuiderzee Museum. Uncover the rich treasures at Amsterdam's world-class museums, including the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum. Take in the dazzling skyline of Rotterdam as you cruise through the bustling harbor and drift along the canals of Bruges. All along the way, you'll savor Dutch delights and Belgian treats as you sail the aquatic highways and byways of two amazing countries shaped by water.
Who will enjoy this cruise: Those who wish to step back in time may visit historic villages, medieval city centers and 20th-century battlefields. Art lovers will enjoy guided museum visits, while garden lovers will find a host of wonders with springtime blossoms.
