About this Cruise

From impressive architectural sights to unique, seasonal delights, discover the highlights of a duo of attraction-packed Dutch cities on this short, yet rewarding break. A specially timed visit to Amsterdam includes chances to experience the springtime splendour of the Keukenhof Gardens, alive with the vibrant colour and fragrance of millions of tulips, and visit capital’s famous morning flower markets to feel their buzz of excitement and energy. You’ll dock within a mile of the Dutch capital, so you could discover other attractions, such as the UNESCO-listed Canal Ring and Anne Frank House, with ease if you wish too.

Balmoral also takes you to Rotterdam, for a day of discovering the various treasures of the Netherlands’ second city. Explore at your leisure, or perhaps on tour, to see and compare the diverse architecture on display, from the futuristic Erasmusbrug Bridge to the unusual Markthal and the Cube Houses. You’ll find interesting museums and galleries aplenty too, providing an insight into Rotterdam’s extensive, maritime industry-influenced heritage.
