AMADEUS Advisor FAM – Holland & Belgium River Cruise


5 Days

Join us on an exclusive familiarization cruise, in conjunction with the ASTA River Cruise Expo 2024. Immerse yourself in the Waterways of Holland & Belgium as you encounter magnificent cities along this picturesque route, and explore the culture and art of iconic cities like Middleburg, Ghent, and Rotterdam. Experience the beauty of picturesque villages, and centuries of captivating stories along the way.


Welcome to your specially-arranged Netherlands and Belgium cruise! Your journey begins in Amsterdam, with an early afternoon embarkation. This evening, join us for a Welcome Cocktail, followed by a specially-prepared Welcome Dinner.

Stay Amsterdam

Departure at 7:00pm

Just before lunchtime, your cruise ship will dock in Middelburg. As one of the centers where the Dutch East India Company flourished in the seventeenth century, this lovely city features historic merchant houses and storefronts lining its canals. 

This afternoon you are invited to an exclusive AMADEUS educational seminar onboard.

Stay Middleburg

11:00am - 6:00pm


During the night, your vessel will dock in beautiful Ghent located in Belgium. Thanks to its importance as a medieval city-state in the late middle-ages, Ghent boasts a wealth of well-preserved medieval architecture. This morning your city tour will include a visit to the Gravensteen, or “Castle of the Counts”, which was the residence of the Counts of Flanders until 1353.

After lunch onboard, join the excursion to Bruges. Bruges, the capital of the province of West Flanders, is home to one of the most charming city centers in Belgium and is also known as the “Venice of the North” thanks to its many canals. Art and old-world architecture – Bruges has it all.  

Stay Ghent

2:00am - 7:00pm


Early morning, your ship will arrive in Rotterdam, the second-largest city in the Netherlands. After breakfast, set off to Kinderdijk, which houses the most unique windmill complex in the world. Built to drain water from the soil, these windmills are now protected by UNESCO and are one of the Netherlands’ most popular tourist destinations. This afternoon marvel at the Rotterdam port, Europe’s largest seaport, during a harbor cruise, and discover local delicacies in a visit to the iconic Market Hall.

Stay Rotterdam

6:00am - 8:00pm


In the early hours, the AMADEUS Cara arrives back in Amsterdam. Enjoy one more leisurely breakfast on board before disembarking. The AMADEUS team wishes you a safe journey home and looks forward to seeing you again in the future.
