Sailing round-trip from Amsterdam, this seven-night cruise offers a chance to see the lavish displays of tulips and other cultivated flowers that form dazzling carpets across the flat Dutch countryside from March to May. The voyage also visits Volendam and Edam, both famed for their cheese production; Arnhem; Nijmegen; and the city of Antwerp, known for its diamond production and fashion scene. There are tours to the pretty Belgian cities of Ghent and Bruges, as well as Kinderdijk, where the landscape is dotted with windmills. Sample more cheese at Gouda and visit Delft, home of the famous pottery. Finally, visit the legendary Keukenhof Gardens, planted with seven million tulips, daffodils and hyacinths. This year, the gardens have a British theme and a highlight is a vast flower mosaic of Big Ben and Tower Bridge, created from some 60,000 bulbs.
