Amsterdam is just the beginning. On this cruise along the Rhine river, you'll have three days to spend in this laid-back and forward-thinking Dutch hotspot, along with stops in Haarlem, Cologne, Koblenz, and Frankfurt. You'll dine on local specialties during a U Time Dutch cheese tasting. You'll spend several nights out on the town - Amsterdam After Dark is a prime example. And you'll get your fix of famous artwork, incredible scenery, and a look into Europe's history and culture. Whatever your travel personality, this cruise is sure to please.
Why a river cruise?
When your waterfront hotel is also your taxi, bar, favorite restaurant, nightclub and yoga studio, travel becomes a bit more relaxed and a lot more hassle-free.
Onboard, you can expect everything you’d find in your favorite boutique hotel. But here’s the best part. Your floating boutique hotel makes it extra-easy to visit several European destinations in a single trip while only having to unpack once.
