Discover Old World enchantment and modern delights on a cruise along the Dutch and Belgian waterways. Each spring these waterways come alive with millions of vibrant, blooming flowers, and cruises that traverse this extensive system of rivers and canals explore unique, picturesque landscapes and historic waterfront towns.
Sights along the Schelde, Waal, Nederrun and Rhine Rivers have inspired artists dating back to the Dutch Masters. See whimsical windmills in Kinderdijk and learn about the region's impressive maritime history in Enkhuizen and Hoorn. A highlight of any cruise is a visit to famed Keukenhof Gardens, home to seven million colorful flowers. Along the way, enjoy local specialties like Dutch cheeses or Belgian waffles and chocolates.
Cruises on these canals and tributaries begin and end in cosmopolitan Amsterdam, where you can visit the Anne Frank House or enjoy the works of Rubens, Rembrandt and Van Gogh at the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum. Marvel at superb architecture in trendy Antwerp, one of the world's most ancient seaports, or wander the cobblestone streets and beautiful canals of Bruges, one of Europe's best-preserved medieval cities.
A cruise on the Dutch and Belgian waterways is a relaxing way to explore the cultural treasures of the Low Countries. Riverboats often dock in the center of town, meaning the best sights are never far away. And with your stateroom, meals, entertainment and sightseeing excursions included in the upfront price, these trips are also easy to budget.
