River Cruise DescriptionExplore the legendary sites of Holland and some off-the-beaten-path locales as well on this springtime river cruise through Northern Holland. Embark from Amsterdam and visit the famous fields of blooming tulips, or take a guided visit to the Zuiderzee Museum to experience the local culture and Dutch maritime history. There is an opportunity to meet some of the locals before continuing your river cruise through the area of Friesland. Here, you'll visit the Royal Planetarium, nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In Lelystad, visit the Batavia shipyard and board an exact replica of the Batavia ship itself. Get a true taste of the culture with an onboard tasting of local cheese and Genever. Cruise through the modern harbor of Rotterdam after a half- or full-day excursion to see the breathtaking colors of Keukenhof, also known as the "Garden of Europe." With over 70 acres of parkland and lakes, it's one of the world's largest flower gardens with nearly 7 million flowering bulbs bursting with color. A river cruise through Holland would not be complete without some time in Holland's colorful capital of Amsterdam. The city combines its historical 17th-century buildings, sculptures, and museums with a modern feel. See the most fascinating views of the city on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten lined with homes dating back to the city's "Golden Age." Experience the amazing Floriade International Horticultural Expo with select departures on April 15 and 22.
