Description

Windmills, delicious cheeses, colourful flowers, a rich art history and more bikes than you can possibly imagine - the Netherlands is like nowhere else on earth. See the full spectrum of Dutch life, landscapes and customs on visits to bustling cities and small rural villages.

On all 2022 sailings, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the Netherlands’ World Horticultural Exhibition, Floriade. Happening once every 10 years, Floriade is an opportunity for Dutch cities to share their ideas for greener, healthier ways of life. Floriade 2022 is set to take place in Almere, just outside of Amsterdam, and construction is already underway! They’re building a demo “Green City of the Future” on the grounds that will eventually become a fully functional, entirely “green” new city. Stroll the expansive arboretum, sample healthful foods and learn about developments in sustainable architecture and energy.
