As capital cities go, Amsterdam is small in comparison. It has a reputation for free-spirited and very liberal lifestyles. Some might call it Europe's most "radical" city, but one cannot deny the beauty of Amsterdam and its rich history. Amsterdam is a cultural center of Europe, as exemplified in its more than 140 art galleries and 40 museums. In addition, it is famous for its baroque architecture, canals, and cobblestone streets where the favored mode of transportation is the bicycle.

  • PRE - AMSTERDAM: ART & ARCHITECTURE CODE: AMSL01

    NOTE: Due to newly implemented restrictions on tour coaches in the city center, there will be a

    short walk (0.4 miles) from your hotel to the bus staging area for your tours each day.

    Explore the architectural landmarks and world-class museums in Amsterdam and visit several historical districts in the nearby countryside, where you will discover more traditional ways of life.

    Day 1

    After flying into Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, you will be met outside Customs and baggage claim and transferred to the Radisson Blu hotel (or similar) in Amsterdam. Check in is 3:00pm. Rooms may not be ready beforehand. However, luggage storage is available at the reception desk. If your flight arrives early in the day, you may wish to book an extra night so a room will be ready upon arrival.

    Depending on your arrival time, the afternoon/evening will be spent at leisure. There is plenty to see nearby, such as the Royal Palace on Dam Square and the Anne Frank House. Amsterdam’s nightlife also offers diverse options for dining and entertainment.

    You will spend the evening at the Radisson Blu.

    Day 2

    Your day starts with breakfast at the hotel, followed by a short coach transfer to the Van Gogh Museum. This museum contains the largest collection of Van Gogh paintings in the world. With an audioguide at your disposal, you will explore the museum, which includes masterpieces such as Sunflowers and Self-Portrait with Straw Hat.

    Afterwards, you will enjoy a short stroll to the canal boat pontoon, where a private saloon boat awaits you for a nearly two-hour cruise along Amsterdam’s canals.

    After disembarking, you have two options: take a guided walk through the city center or spend the afternoon at your leisure, perhaps lingering over lunch, browsing the shops, or exploring museums such as the Rembrandt house, Rijksmuseum, Hermitage or the Jewish Historical Museum.

    You will spend the evening at the Radisson Blu.

    Day 3

    Following breakfast at the hotel, you will enjoy a scenic coach drive to an area north of Amsterdam. In contrast to the urban atmosphere in Amsterdam, you can expect a more natural environment.

    The first stop will be Zaanse Schans, a re-creation of an 18th-century Zaan community. Here, you will see some of the Netherlands’ famed windmills, as well as people practicing traditional trades such as clog-making. When the guided tour ends, you will enjoy free time to explore further.

    A leisurely drive will then bring you to Monnickendam, an historical harbor town founded in 1355 around the shipping industry. Following more free time here, during which you may shop or stop for lunch, you will visit a nearby farm known for cheese-making.

    Then, it’s on to the idyllic village of Broek in Waterland for an enlightening walking tour before you return to the Radisson Blu hotel for the evening.

    Day 4

    After a relaxing morning at your leisure, you will depart for Haarlem, a lovely medieval city. While meadering through Haarlem’s historic downtown, you will past landmarks such as the city hall, Grand Market Square, and the Grote, a church also known as St. Bavo Kerk.

    While browsing the church’s interior, you will see its famous organ, which has been played by some of the world’s most famous composers, including Mendelssohn, Händel and the 10-year-old Mozart.

    The next church on the tour, Jopenkerk, has been converted into a brewery and a café where you may savor a local beer before returning to Amsterdam to board the ship.

    Please note: Land programs that encompass multiple days ashore customarily include extensive and prolonged activity, while those of shorter durations typically have more moderate activity levels. However, each program varies and participants should be prepared to negotiate a mixture of surfaces which may include: inclines, cobblestones, sand, and gravel or natural paths. There may also be a need to climb steps or stairs on occasion. Guests who utilize a wheelchair and those with mobility concerns are advised to check with the cruise line in advance to see if any portion of the tour program may not be considered suitable for their individual situation. Weather appropriate clothing; hats; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are generally recommended.

    Please note: All land programs are capacity controlled and subject to availability. Programs falling under the minimum number of required participants are subject to cancellation. Pricing listed is also subject to change to meet unexpected cost increases for transportation, land arrangements or currency fluctuations. Once purchased, pricing is guaranteed and not subject to change. Land Programs must be purchased no later than 60 days prior to your sail date. Cancellations made within 60 days or less prior to the sail date are subject to 100% cancellation penalty. There are no refunds for unused portions of any program. Guests failing to arrive on Day 1 of a scheduled land program will be considered a no-show and their hotel space released.
