Spring Breaks to Amsterdam

Spring is a great time to visit Amsterdam. The sun is shining, flowers are beginning to bloom and there’s a sense of regeneration across the city.

Cafes are starting to spill onto the streets once more, the parks are becoming greener and festivals such as King’s Day take over the city.

Plus, when you travel on a mini cruise, your holiday starts as soon as you step onboard. Enjoy live music, an onboard cinema, some retail therapy and delicious food before unwinding in your en suite cabin ready to arrive the following morning.
