City Break to Newcastle
If you’re craving a short break, a mini cruise to Amsterdam is perfect.
If the sun is shining you can spend the afternoon in one of the city’s parks, browse the world’s only floating flower market or if you’re looking to soak up some culture, why not visit one of the many famous museums in the city? With pre-booking and social distancing measures in place, you can browse some world-famous museums without the normal crowds you would expect. You won’t want to leave before sampling some delicious Dutch pancakes too!
We recommend you book in advance any museum visits or canal cruises and check the guidelines of the venue before visiting.
