Cruise Description

9 Night Cruise sailing from Antwerp to Amsterdam aboard River Princess.

Day 1 – Antwerp (embark)
Embark the ship in Antwerp.

Day 2: Antwerp
It may be the diamond capital of the world, but Antwerp is also known for a number of other sought-after cultural gems, including Golden Age art and Belgian beer, waffles and fries. Belgium’s largest port, the city is home to trendsetting fashion designers and a mecca for chocolate lovers, Antwerp is lively and historic, lovely and legend-filled. Visit Antwerp’s striking Cathedral of Our Lady, with its UNESCO-designated belfry and its historic surroundings, or, if you’re feeling adventurous, hop on the metro and experience the city like a local.

Choice of “Do as the Locals Do” Antwerp walking tour or Antwerp historic downtown highlights

A special Captain’s Welcome Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you this evening.

Day 3: Ghent (Bruges or Ghent)
Your next day in Belgium offers you the chance to visit a national gem: beautiful Bruges, the capital of West Flanders and one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Europe. Bruges is a place that seems frozen in time, where boats and swans float down canals and under stone bridges that gave the city its name.

Choice of Bruges walking tour with canal cruise or "Do as the Locals Do" Ghent walking tour

Day 4: Veere
Remember the tale of the Dutch boy who saved a town by plugging a dike with his finger? Well, the reality of life in this below-sea-level country is a tad more complicated, as you’ll learn today during your visit to the Delta Works. For something completely different, we’ll also visit a former artists’ colony.

Featured Excursions:
Stroll into the artists’ village of Veere
Delta Works museum

Day 5: Rotterdam, Kinderdijk
Windmills are such an iconic symbol of Holland that it’s easy to overlook their marvelous engineering and their role in changing the course of Dutch history. You may never look at a windmill in quite the same way after today’s outing to historic Kinderdijk. The second-largest city in the Netherlands and the largest port in Europe, Rotterdam is thoroughly modern—much of its historic fabric was destroyed during WWII. As your ship cruises through the port, you’ll soon understand why it’s sometimes called “Manhattan on the Meuse”: The Maas Tower, the Montevideo, the Millennium Tower and the spectacular Erasmus Bridge make for a dazzling skyline. You’ll have some free time to explore this exciting modern city on your own. Take a look at the amazing cube houses, stop by Groos for unique pieces by Rotterdam designers, check out the new market hall or visit one of Rotterdam’s many museums.

Featured Excursions:
Dutch Culinary Stroll of Rotterdam’s SuperDutch, supersized Market Hall
Kinderdijk windmills

Day 6: Nijmegen
For your choice of excursions today, you can visit the Kröller-Müller Museum, which is home to 97 works by native son Vincent Van Gogh, as well as other notable artists and sculptors. Or enjoy a bike ride in the Hoge Veluwe National Park.

Choice of Kröller-Müller Museum visit or “Let’s Go” Nijmegen riverland biking

Day 7: Hoorn, Enkhuizen
Today offers you a chance to discover the Netherlands’ maritime history, with visits to two historic towns linked to the Dutch East India Company (which dominated Europe’s trade with Asia for centuries), and to learn a little about the daily lives of the seafaring Dutch in the 19th century. The tip of South America—Cape Horn—is actually a misspelling of “Hoorn,” which tells you a lot about the town of Hoorn and its seafaring past. The swash-buckling derring-do of Dutch explorers comes to life today on a guided walking tour of this historic locale. Later, leave the modern world far behind during a visit to a re-created 19th-century Dutch village.

Featured Excursion:
Enkhuizen fishing port- Dutch maritime traditions on the Zuiderzee

Choice of Hoorn walking tour or Dutch Cheese Trail

Day 8: Haarlem
Keukenhof is said to be the world’s largest and most famous flower garden, a bold declaration that actually lives up to the hype. Spend all day amongst millions of brilliantly colored flowers, or mix it up a bit with a shorter garden visit plus a stroll through Haarlem.

Choice of Full-day at Keukenhof Gardens* or Keukenhof Gardens (half-day), with Haarlem: art, history and dutch lifestyle

Day 9: Amsterdam
The Netherlands’ largest city, Amsterdam has been an international port and financial center for 400 years, endowing it with a lively cosmopolitan feel to match its historic architecture. The laid-back, forward-thinking Dutch capital is as celebrated for its artistic masterpieces as it is for its canals, narrow houses, bicycles and vibrant nightlife. Discover the “Venice of the North” in two iconic ways today—a private visit to the Amsterdam Hermitage (an extra special perk reserved solely for Uniworld guests), plus a canal cruise or walking tour with a native of the city. Here, even the simplest shop has a distinctive charm, and every street has a story to tell.

Featured Excursion:
"Morning with the Masters" at the Hermitage Amsterdam
Choice of Amsterdam canal cruise or “Do as the Locals Do” Amsterdam walking tour

A special Captain’s Farewell Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you this evening.

Day 10: Amsterdam (Disembark)
Disembark the ship.
