River Cruise Itinerary
DAY 1: ANTWERP
Board our ship at 6:00 p.m. in Antwerp. After comfortably settling into your cabins, we’ll introduce our crew at a welcome cocktail. We’ll have dinner on board, and then visit the city with our host or accompanist. Overnight stop.
 
DAY 2: ANTWERP - ROTTERDAM
Full board on board. In the morning, guided visit of Antwerp and its impressive Gothic cathedral. We’ll also visit the Diamondland in this diamond shopper’s paradise. For over five centuries, Antwerp was the commercial heart of Europe and approximately 40% of world trade passed through its ports. The diamond industry naturally grew out of this favored position. Cruise towards Rotterdam, arriving in the evening. Gala evening. Overnight stop.
 
DAY 3: ROTTERDAM - AMSTERDAM
Full board on board. We’ll spend the morning cruising towards Utrecht. In the afternoon, guided visit of Delft and Rotterdam. Delft is a charming city dating back to the 13th century and is world-renowned for its blue and white Delft pottery. We’ll be able to admire the century-old techniques of this imitation porcelain. We’ll then visit Rotterdam, a city dominated by modern architecture. During this time, our ship will cruise to Amsterdam, where it will be waiting for us at the end of the afternoon. In the evening, boat tour to admire Amsterdam at night. Overnight stop.
 
DAY 4: AMSTERDAM
Full board on board. In the morning, join us for a guided visit of Amsterdam and a visit to a diamond merchant. The city has been a major diamond center since the late 16th century, and since then it has been known as the City of Diamonds. This afternoon, visit to the Van Gogh Museum. It houses the largest collection of works by Vincent van Gogh, including more than 200 paintings, 500 drawings and 700 of his letters. It also has a few works by other renowned artists such as Paul Gauguin and Claude Monet. Enjoy a free evening, or why not discover the famous Red Light District through an optional tour (book and pay on board)? Although the famous neighborhood leaves nothing to the imagination, it’s also one of the oldest and most beautiful parts of the city. Overnight stop.
 
DAY 5: AMSTERDAM
Breakfast on board before disembarking. End of our services.
