Often referred to as Holland, the close proximity of the Netherlands to the UK makes it an ideal option for a short break and is easily accessible via an ocean cruise. In particular, the Dutch capital of Amsterdam welcomes many visitors from around the world throughout the year, offering a fine blend of cosmopolitan and charmingly historical elements.

Colloquially known as the Venice of the North, Amsterdam is split into numerous islands by a series of canals. There are more than 1,500 bridges situated throughout the city that connect the islands and make for a pleasant stroll through the Dutch capital. On your travels, you will be able to discover a number of impressive architectural landmarks including an array of churches, synagogues, windmills, museums and much more.

There is also plenty to see outside of Amsterdam including the beautiful Keukenhof Gardens, which are open to visitors for only the first two months of spring every year. Spread over a total of 32 hectares, visitors will discover a vibrant array of colours displayed in the form of thousands of tulips as well as hyacinths, daffodils and many other types of flower.
