Flower market in Amsterdam

Amsterdam in Bloom

Feel the flower power in the city over spring. The Bloemenmarkt is full to the brim of colourful bouquets and you can grab some bulbs to bring home with you too. The Tulip Museum has some fantastic exhibitions and you can follow the Tulip Festival route through the city to see the 1 million bulbs planted specially for the occasion.

Our spring offer is valid on both mini cruises and short breaks, so you can book a crossing to suit you.

If you fancy a day in Amsterdam with two nights onboard, enjoying all the fantastic facilities and transfers to and from the city, the mini cruise is perfect.

If you’d like to stay longer and explore more of the Dutch capital, or perhaps the famous flower fields such as Keukenhof Gardens, our Cruise & Stay option may be more suited to you. With the choice to have packaged transfers, option to take your own vehicle, or option to add a hotel you can stay up to two nights in Holland and discover more.
