Nip in and out of the waterways that cross two pretty countries as you explore their welcoming cities. We take our pick from Amsterdam’s world-class museums and marvel at busy Rotterdam’s cutting-edge architecture. In compact Ghent, we can stroll the canalside walkways and perhaps view an iconic Ghent Altarpiece (one of the world’s most stolen artworks). Two days in vibrant Antwerp gives us time to enjoy the contrast of medieval cobbled streets, tempting boutiques and slick, contemporary restaurants.
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to Dover, where our staff will greet you and assist with embarking Boudicca (3T+) in preparation for a late evening sailing.
Day 2 - Amsterdam, Netherlands (overnight)
We arrive early morning for an overnight stop in Amsterdam, where a visit to this cosmopolitan city wouldn’t be complete without exploring the Van Gogh Museum. Step inside to discover the largest collection of his awe-inspiring work. Or, perhaps make a poignant visit to Anne Frank’s canalside house.
Day 3 - Amsterdam - Cruising North Sea Canal
Enjoy another full day in Amsterdam, before sailing this evening along the North Sea Canal.
Day 4 - Rotterdam - Cruising Nieuwe Mass
We head to the south of the Netherlands today and Europe’s biggest international cargo port and major cultural centre. Marvel at the wealth of fine museums and enjoy the energetic atmosphere, before we cruise later along the Nieuwe Mass, a distributary of the Rhine.
Day 5 - Ghent, Belgium - Cruising Ghent-Terneuzen Canal
Ghent is Belgium’s best kept secret and one of Europe’s greatest discoveries - small enough to feel cosy but big enough to stay vibrant. With its fabulous canalside architecture, wealth of quirky bars and some of the country’s most fascinating museums, this is a city you’ll enjoy exploring.
Day 6 - Cruising Western Scheldt River - Antwerp (overnight)
Today we enter the Western Scheldt River from Belgium - an important shipping route for the port of Antwerp and a river that has no bridges. We cruise our way to Antwerp, arriving early for two full days in the city.
Day 7 - Antwerp
Antwerp is Belgium’s second city, famed for cobbled streets and quaint architecture - this is the charming capital of cool. Today Antwerp’s top drawcards are its truly vibrant fashion and entertainment scene, impressive cathedral along with its striking architectural and cultural contrasts.
Day 8 Dover
We disembark after breakfast and you will be met and guided to your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.
