Your Ship : MV Virginia

If you're looking for a quality cruise experience but on a more intimate scale, you must consider the MV Virginia, like many of our passengers have already. It's a warm and inviting ship, perfect for the gentle waterways of the Rhine and Moselle with its many sights, and friendly and welcoming atmosphere on board means you're likely to make new friends once you set sail.

Keukenhof Gardens

Keukenhof is an acclaimed spring garden, and during its short two-month opening period each year, the gardens receive visitors from all over the world. Established over 50 years ago by the Mayor of Lisse for European growers to showcase their hybrids, Keukenhof is the largest bulb park in the world, with over seven million bulbs planted by hand each year. The result is simply breath-taking, and is a sight not to be missed!

Extend your holiday ...

Why not extend your river cruise with an additional stay in Amsterdam or Antwerp? When travelling by air or rail, consider enjoying an additional two nights in Amsterdam at the beginning of your river cruise, or a two night stay in Antwerp once your cruise has ended - or both!
