A Tribute to Elvis & the Sounds of the 60’s

Enjoy Elvis and the sounds of the 60’s, as we cruise along the Dutch waterways. You can explore pretty Dutch harbours and enjoy plenty of free time in Amsterdam, the exciting capital of the Netherlands. This is the perfect springtime break together with superb on board entertainment.

Day 1: UK – Amsterdam
We travel to Amsterdam the capital city of the Netherlands. This evening the first Elvis disco hosted by Phil Shakespeare, from Hot Shots Elvis, plays out over the river.

Day 2: Hoorn – Kampen
We arrive in the atmospheric city of Hoorn, this morning and have free time to explore this wonderful little city full of history and beautiful surroundings. At lunchtime we cruise over to the eastern shores of the IJsselmeer to the historical town of Kampen. The remainder of the day can be spent exploring Kampen, with its beautifully preserved centre. There will be entertainment on board, all Elvis of course, then after dinner we will be entertained by the fabulous Wilsons Show followed by an Elvis Disco.

Day 3: Kampen – Lelystad - Amsterdam
Casting off from Kampen we cruise to the lively little port of Lelystad, there will be time for you to explore. You can join our optional excursion to view the breathtaking Keukenhof Gardens. We rejoin the ship in Amsterdam where you can experience the true beauty of this capital city on our optional canal cruise, which takes you around the 17thcentury buildings and picturesque little bridge while you enjoy cheese and wine. It wouldn’t be an Elvis event without a night of dressing up. Join us for our final night Elvis Disco and a performance from Mark Keeley's Rock and Roll Show.

Day 4: Amsterdam – UK
Alas it’s time to leave the Elvis family and this morning we disembark for the return journey home.
