The Netherlands river cruises from The River Cruise Line provide a convenient, yet thrilling way to explore the Netherlands.

The name Netherlands is Germanic for ‘lowlands’. Approximately 20% of its area is found below sea level, and 50% of its land sits less than 1 metre above sea level. There are countless canals and rivers throughout the country, making a river cruise and the Netherlands the perfect match.

The Netherlands is a constitutional monarchy and is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The rest of the kingdom comprises the Dutch Antilles and Aruba in the Caribbean. The Netherlands is bordered by Belgium and Germany and its vast network of waterways find their way to its North Sea coast.

Keep an eye on our late availability page for special river cruise deals; Dutch waterways cruises may even make an appearance.
