On this three night cruise you will spend time in the vibrant city of Amsterdam, as well as Rotterdam and Antwerp, the world’s two largest ports. You can then take advantage of low-cost airlines flying to Amsterdam and to Brussels for Antwerp.

This cruise is ideal for a short break, but could also form part of a longer holiday, perhaps with additional stays in Amsterdam, Antwerp or Brussels.
