River Cruises — Tulip Time In The Netherlands

Paul and Elizabeth sail on AMAWaterways newest ship, the AmaLea, through the Netherlands and Belgium during the height of the spring tulip bloom in April. The tulips are blooming and Holland is at her best. It’s a chance to experience a river cruise and visit some of the most interesting towns and cities, including Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Middleburg, Ghent, Bruges, and even a stop at Kinderdijk.

The ship’s godmother is travel industry veteran Filomena Andre. Before boarding the vessel in Amsterdam, Paul and Elizabeth spend two nights in nearby Haarlem, home to the Netherlands’ oldest museum, the Teylers, as well as the Frans Hals Museum, and the inspirational Corrie Ten Boom House. And they share what it was like to be in the Netherlands on King’s Day.
