Spotlight on Tulip Time
The most colorful river cruises in the world!

You may have been thinking about taking a Springtime tulip time, garden-themed, or other river cruise. One of our favorite, short cruises is AmaWaterways' 7-night Tulip Time cruise through the waterways of Holland and Belgium. If you haven't yet read the day-by-day itinerary, you really should. Check it out and give us a call if you need more information from one of our river cruise experts, a FREE quote, or to book — 1-855-255-1200.

There seems to be a photo-op around every corner!
I'd like to give you just a glimpse of the incredible array of personal and photographic memories you’ll be able to capture when you book and enjoy a springtime river cruise through the waterways of Holland and Belgium.

Take a look at the images in this Spotlight and imagine yourself standing amid the millions, yes, millions of tulips found along the banks of the waterways. The colors and excitement don’t stop there... you’ll also enjoy the unimaginable beauty and vivid rainbows of color to be found within the exquisite Keukenhof Gardens (open only nine weeks a year) with its 70 acres and almost 7 million tulips. You’ve never seen colors like that in any art form — they just cannot be replicated! You have to see it for yourself, and I guarantee the sights and colors will be indelibly etched into one of the most incredible travel memories you’ll ever have!

Tulip time and garden-themed cruises are absolutely NOT just for flower or nature lovers, they'll satisfy all your other special interests, too!

These cruises are also for art lovers, especially those who enjoy the Dutch Masters. It’s for WWII history buffs (like me) that go absolutely bonkers when they take the time to visit the Liberation Museum. This museum has so much memorabilia and unique war documents about WWII, you won’t believe it. Other than my first visit to the bluffs above the Normandy beaches and the museum at Arromanches, this is the best museum of its kind in the world.

If you're an art lover and particularly fond of the Dutch Masters, we need only to say: Rijksmuseum. You’ll be giddy with anticipation of your visit, because this museum not only has the best collection of the “Masters” — Rubens and Rembrandt — but an equally robust collection of Impressionists.

Next, imagine walking through one of the few remaining functioning 18th century windmills in Kinderdijk, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and home to about 20 working windmills. You’ll enjoy a delightful guided tour that explains how important the windmills were in the history of the Netherlands low country, and their ongoing battle with the sea. You’ll also experience the ingenious modern solution to the low lands: the Delta Works.

There’s also a very enjoyable, separate Amsterdam canal cruise (not aboard your river ship) that provides a most interesting guided tour of many of the lesser known neighborhoods of this beautiful city. And yes… you’ll have plenty of time to visit Amsterdam’s fabled “red-light” district and we encourage you to do so as (other than for the Bangkok district), it may be one of the most interesting places to enjoy a leisurely walk in the evening — and yes, it is very safe!

Springtime is also a perfect time to experience Belgium.
A tulip time river cruise will also take you briefly (2-3 days generally) into the beautiful country of Belgium, home to some of the best chocolate in the world — it’s on every corner and very affordable, not to mention tasty. Actually, our favorite item here was not the chocolate, but rather the Belgium waffles adorned with fresh homemade ice cream and fudge... yummy!! The medieval city of Ghent is especially well-know for their fine chocolates, and there will be plenty of opportunity to visit a few chocolate making houses and get insights on the process from master chocolatiers.

A stay in Bruges is also distinctly in order. It is one of the best-preserved medieval cities in all of Europe. Many people have referred to Bruges and its canals as the "Venice of the North," and we think you’ll find it the most beautiful city you may have ever visited — especially at this time of the year. Your included sightseeing allows plenty of time in the really cool public gardens, and you’ll also have time to roam around Market Square with its Belfry Tower — maybe the best-known site in town. Save plenty of space on your camera's digital memory card, because you’ll soon see why Bruges is one of the most photographed cities in Europe.

For the best spot to take that perfect photo of Bruges, go to the bridge called Peerdenburg for views of the prettiest stretch of canal in the entire city. Actually, there’s practically a photo op at almost every turn in Bruges, that’s one of the reasons you’ll fall in love with it, and its people.

One last thing to mention...
Tulip time and garden-themed river cruises are generally the best river cruise values of the year, and we have some excellent deals on all of AmaWaterways Tulip Time, Spring time, and Rhine river cruises. Give us a call to find out more about all AmaWaterways river cruises, and let's get started planning your incredibly memorable river cruise.
