Tulips and Windmills... the most colorful river cruises in the world!


If you’ve spent any time on the Premier River Cruises’ site, you know that when we talk about the many wonderful features of a river cruise vacation, we mention the word "memories" often. I don’t know about you, but memories seem to become more important as we mature and move “north” of fifty… memories of our childhood, of life-changing events, of our parents, of our kids, the memories (and friends) we acquire if we’re fortunate enough to be able to travel. I think you know what I mean. You close your eyes and actually visualize specific memories as if they were snapshots of your life. For me, it’s a snapshot of my wife standing in front of the Eiffel Tower on a rainy spring day. (Take a look at all the garden themed cruises in the cruisGENIE™ CRUISE CHART below.)

We’d like to recommend a sure-shot for creating those new memories with the garden theme cruises available… You may be thinking about a Tulips & Windmills or another river cruise through the Waterways of Holland & Belgium. The first thought that entered my mind is that anyone who has ever taken or thought about taking a fall New England car trip to view the changing of the colors will love these itineraries; it’s like New England on steroids!

How do you find the perfect river cruise? It’s EASY! Just select “Garden” from the Theme drop down menu in the CruisGENIE™ Cruise Locator filter bar below. Click “GO!” and all of the garden theme cruises will result in the cruise chart. When you find the itinerary and departure date that best suits you, give one of our Personal Travel Planners a call right away at 1.855.255.1200, to begin planning your exciting river cruise in Europe. Don’t be disappointed... book now.

Not convinced yet that a garden theme river cruise will make everyone happy?
Let me give you just a glimpse of the incredible array of personal and photographic memories you’ll be able to capture if you’re ready to book and enjoy a springtime river cruise through the waterways of Holland and Belgium (Which just happens to be one of our particular favorites!). And just a taste of all the other destinations and sights you'll experience on one of these excellent itineraries...

First of all, imagine yourself standing amid 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 and other flowers. You’ve never seen colors like that in any art form — just cannot be replicated! I guarantee the sights and colors will be indelibly etched into one of the most incredible travel memories you’ll ever have!

The next thing you need to know is that these Tulip & Windmill cruises are absolutely NOT just for flower or nature lovers, it is for photo journalists, too! Those who are looking for that perfect, colorful picture to hang on the den wall. They’re 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 are an art lover and particularly fond of the Dutch Masters, we need only 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!
