Tulips & Windmills Cruise

The Netherlands to Belgium

AMSTERDAM, GHENT, BRUSSELS, AND ANTWERP

Join us on this extra special cruise to see sprawling tulip fields, magnificent windmills, and beautiful Dutch architecture as we sail through the Netherlands to Belgium.

We’ll also bring you to Zaanse Schans, the open-air museum/village featuring six picturesque windmills and traditional wooden houses. With vibrant flowers budding all around you, take a walking tour around Amsterdam to visit Dam Square, see Anne Frank’s House, and shop at the Flower Market. In Rotterdam, discover and admire modern buildings, including the Cube Houses. Plus, spend time in Belgium exploring the old-world architecture and charming culture of Ghent, Brussels, and Antwerp.
