Enjoy cruising on Holland and Belgium’s delightful inland seas, passing through some of the largest locks imaginable. This four night cruise gives an extra day to explore Amsterdam. For total flexibility we are offering these cruises without transport to Amsterdam or Antwerp, allowing you to take advantage of low-cost airlines flying to Amsterdam and to Brussels for Antwerp.

This cruise is ideal for a short break, but could also form part of a longer holiday, perhaps with additional stays in Amsterdam, Antwerp or Brussels.
