Day 1 UK – Arnhem

We travel to Arnhem and board our ship for a relaxing evening.

Day 2 Arnhem – Amsterdam

Enjoy a leisurely morning as we cruise along the Lek river and the Amsterdam-Rhine canal, before arriving in the fascinating seasonally decorated city of Amsterdam. During December Amsterdam holds its ‘Light Festival’ and lights up with light sculptures, projections and art installations along the roads, squares and in the canals - you can join our optional city tour to see all the main sights and the city in a feast of colours. The rest of the day is free for you to relax, explore and soak up the atmosphere at leisure.

Day 3 New Year’s Eve Amsterdam – Rotterdam

Rotterdam is known as ‘Manhattan on the Meuse’ because of its impressive skyline, which showcases cutting-edge architecture. Join our optional excursion to enjoy some of the highlights: take a trip up the Euromast observation tower where you can see as far as Antwerp on a clear day, followed by a visit to the curious cube houses. This evening we can enjoy our onboard New Years Eve party and watch the fireworks at midnight on Erasmus Bridge.

Happy New Year! Relax on board as we sail to Dordrecht passing the village of Kinderdijk, which is renowned for its 19 beautifully preserved windmills – the largest concentration in the Netherlands. We arrive in Dordrecht and enjoy an afternoon at leisure to explore the beautifully preserved centre which is filled with ancient buildings that huddle along a web of canals and harbours.
