If someone says Holland, what comes to mind? Windmills and tulips? That is exactly what I expected to see on a Tulip Time River Cruise. What I saw were those and a lot more. This was a leisurely paced tour on the waterways of The Netherlands and Belgium. My favorite city, really a small medieval town, was Bruges Belgium. This was an optional tour from Ghent. The Delta Works project, built to keep the sea from flooding the Zeeland area is one of the world’s most complex engineering projects. This was another tour stop and one of my husband’s favorites. I liked walking through charming small towns and seeing wisteria dripping over the doorways and cats sleeping on the steps. The highlight of the trip was a day at the Keukenhof Gardens. This is a 70 acre park of gardens, lakes, sculptures, and greenhouses. Millions of spring blooming bulbs are planted for a spectacular display each year. We started and ended the cruise in Amsterdam, a beautiful city of many canals. I love river cruising. The ship serves as a floating hotel, and you only unpack once while visiting one or two towns a day. Excursions are included. Each ship carries about 150 passengers. The meals are wonderful and often reflect the region of the country being cruised. Coffee and tea is available throughout the day and wine is included with dinner.
