Tulips & Chocolates Cruise

Tulips & Chocolates Cruise

This indulgent itinerary offers you the chance to see Amsterdam’s beautiful tulip displays at Keukenhof Gardens, after treating yourself to the finest Belgian chocolates in Antwerp or Ghent. A CITO tour.

DAY 1: Your Door to Door service will transfer you to Southampton to board Balmoral. Highlights of the cruise include:

 

• Cruise the North Sea Canal

 

• Amsterdam, Netherlands. Here you’ll be able to unravel haunting history at Anne Frank House, delve into culture at the Museum Quarter, take a leisurely cruise along the canals or enjoy a unique perspective as you take in the city by bicycle! The highlight is undoubtedly the chance to visit the historic Keukenhof Gardens at a great time for capturing colourful tulips in bloom.

 

• Antwerp, Belgium. We have time to explore at our own pace, courtesy of the ship’s closer docking location and an overnight stay. The likes of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts and the legendary diamond district are recommended for immersing yourself in the city’s most prized possessions. Elsewhere, after we’ve had the chance to sample some delicious Belgian chocolates, perhaps take a city walking tour which showcases all the revered landmarks that sit in the shadow of the mighty Cathedral of Our Lady.

 

• Should you wish to venture further afield, an equally captivating tour includes the attractions and artisan chocolatiers of Ghent.

 

DAY 6: We cruise back into Southampton to meet your Door to Door service home.

  • Door to Door Service
