Day 2 - Amsterdam

Amsterdam is often referred to as the ‘Venice of the North’, as canals criss-cross the heart of the old city. A canal cruise brings to life its beauty and history, before visiting either the Van Gogh Museum or the Rijksmuseum. If you prefer to get an authentic view of local life, a stroll through the canal district uncovers some of Amsterdam’s most charming and little-known treasures. End the day at the Captain’s Welcome Reception and Gala Dinner.

Day 3 - Amsterdam (Haarlem)

Spend all day at the Keukenhof Gardens, one of the most impressive public gardens in the world, with more than seven million bulbs planted on a 70-acre site. Or spend a half day at the gardens and either relax on board after lunch or experience charming and lively Haarlem, where you’ll explore the historic centre before visiting Teylers Museum, home to a fascinating collection of fossils, historic scientific instruments and paintings, all displayed under skylights.

Nijmegen, the oldest town in the Netherlands, is your gateway to one of two intriguing discoveries today.
