Amsterdam, Bulbfields & Waterways of Holland Itinerary -
08 May 2019 on the mps Lady Anne

Day 1 UK – Nijmegen

We travel to Nijmegen, which nestles on the Waal river in the Netherlands, and settle aboard our ship.

Day 2 Nijmegen – Dordrecht

Spend the morning relaxing onboard as we cruise along Dutch waterways in the Rhine delta. Around midday we arrive in the city of Dordrecht, whose beautifully preserved centre is filled with ancient buildings that huddle along a web of canals and harbours. You are free to explore at your own pace.

Day 3 Dordrecht – Rotterdam – Schoonhoven

We leave Dordrecht in the morning and continue along Dutch waterways to reach Rotterdam. From here our included excursion takes you to Keukenhof Gardens, where you have plenty of time to explore the 32-hectare site and enjoy the swathes of flowers, themed pavilions and wonderful atmosphere that surrounds this world-class event. We return to our ship in the ‘silver city’ of Schoonhoven, named after the silver trade that has taken place here since the 17th century, and enjoy the remainder of the day at leisure.

Day 4 Schoonhoven – Amsterdam

Enjoy another leisurely morning as we cruise along the Lek river and the Amsterdam-Rhine canal, before arriving in the fascinating city of Amsterdam. Explore the city’s canals, visit one of the many museums or vintage-filled shops. After dinner you can enjoy an optional candlelit canal cruise while enjoying cheese and wine.

Day 5 Amsterdam – UK

We bid farewell to our captain and crew after breakfast and set off on the return journey.
