TULIP TIME IN HOLLAND & BELGIUM (WWI HISTORY CRUISE THEME)

Tour: WAXX  AMSTERDAM  BRUSSELS
Select a special departure in tulip season to experience moving WWI history in Holland and Belgium. A history expert accompanies our cruise with visits to the underground city of Maastricht and the Ardennes Battlefields, as well as the memorial sites in Bastogne. Visit the legendary battlefields of Eastern Flanders, including a Last Post ceremony at Menin Gate on Anzac Day.

You’ll also revel in a view filled with windmills and blooming fields of color in Holland and Belgium, it all comes true on your European river cruise from Amsterdam to Brussels! Cruise on the Rhine River with a visit to Arnhem’s WWII Airborne Museum, and join your ship in Nijmegen and visit the lovely forest setting of ‘s-Hertogenbosch to sample decadent Dutch chocolate desserts. You may alternatively visit a fruit and flower farm to visit with the miller there to hear the history of a 15th-century windmill. A carriage ride takes you through the nearby nature reserve to watch for herons, storks, birds of prey, and wild horses. If you prefer, take a guided bike ride along the Rhine River banks of Arnhem. In Maastricht, choose a sightseeing tour of the old cobblestoned university town, or visit a working mill to make your own Limburg pie.

On to Belgium for a sightseeing tour of medieval Namur and free time to browse its ancient architecture, charming cafes, and bookshops. In Liège, see the ancient quarters of the “Fiery City” as well as its romantic streets, steps, and tiny alleyways. Next, you’ll explore the city of Antwerp—birthplace of the master painter Pieter Paul Rubens. Stroll its cobbled lanes amid 16th-century guildhall houses and the cathedral’s stunning altarpiece paintings by the famous artist on your guided tour of the diamond capital. In Brussels, you’ll find landmark buildings of Town Hall with a collection of cafes and shops on the Lower Town streets on your guided tour. Memories of Holland and Belgium will bloom in your memory for seasons to come!
