Explore the legendary sites of Holland and some off-the-beaten-path locales as well on this springtime river cruise through Northern Holland. Embark from Amsterdam and visit the famous fields of blooming tulips, or take a guided visit to the Zuiderzee Museum to experience the local culture and Dutch maritime history. There is an opportunity to meet some of the locals before continuing your river cruise through the area of Friesland. Here, you’ll visit the Royal Planetarium, nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In Lelystad, visit the Batavia shipyard and board an exact replica of the Batavia ship itself, or enjoy a guided tour in Giethoorn. Get a true taste of the culture with an onboard tasting of local cheese and Genever. Cruise through the modern harbor of Rotterdam after a half- or full-day excursion to see the breathtaking colors of Keukenhof, also known as the “Garden of Europe.” With over 70 acres of parkland and lakes, it’s one of the world’s largest flower gardens with nearly 7 million flowering bulbs bursting with color. A river cruise through Holland would not be complete without some time in Holland’s colorful capital of Amsterdam. The city combines its historical 17th-century buildings, sculptures, and museums with a modern feel. See the most fascinating views of the city on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten lined with homes dating back to the city’s “Golden Age.”

Great crew and cruise director. Boat appears nearly a new boat due to constant attention they give. Mosul was special and made the cruise.
The staff was excellent in accomodating my 88 year old mother who took her Rollator on-board The Gentle Walks worked well.
Great trip , loved all the discounts , and room upgrade. Allyson always answered my questions promptly.
Due to positioning issues, we were changed to a sister ship, Affinity II. The layout was excellent with several large public areas either inside or protected from the weather; those areas inside had wonderful panorama windows. The Cat A cabin was a good size, comfortable with an excellent bathroom layout and great shower. We ran into low water conditions on the Rhine and therefore had to do part of the cruise via land. Avalon handled this as best as possible and kept our inconvenience to a minimum. Their rearrangements were less disruptive than other river cruisers we bumped in to. The only negatives are the noise level in the dining room and the cabins on the port side sometimes had diesel fumes (many of us experienced this); the starboard cabins did not have this problem (only reason for not giving a top score for cabin)
The ship and staff were great. There was concern about low river levels, but they handled the situation very well. As a result, we had not problems and stayed on schedule throughout the cruise. This was a new cruise combining the Rhine and Moselle rivers, and it was one of the best we've had. We now have had 5 cruises with Avalon.
I've now been on 3 river cruises with Avalon and have loved each one.
Our river cruise on Avalon was fabulous. The cruise director was professional and always available for any questions and he went out of his way to make sure our travel experience was a good one. The entire crew on the Avalon was amazing. Every crew member was cheerful, and always helpful. They all had a sense of humor and engaged with all our fellow travelers in a delightful way. The crew made this trip even more special. The food was delicious. This was one of our best trips ever.
Our cruise director was always available, helpful and courteous. In addition, he was extremely entertaining, so his information stuck, and he went out of his way to make sure that we were able to make the most of any free time we had, by providing suggestions, tips and recommendations. I loved his port talks and receiving the printed itinerary and additional information and maps for the next day. I have kept every one of them in the folder provided, and still refer them for information on our destinations. The rest of the crew on the Artistry II were always friendly, efficient and provided quality service, from the waiters and the stewards all the way to the Captain. Absolutely wonderful experience-Avalon does it again.
Our tour director was fabulous. Everything ran like clockwork. The Moselle river is the most beautiful river we have ever been on.
Delightful experience. Great itinerary. Wonderful food and service.
Everything went according to plans for the city stays and the riverboat cruise. Unfortunately, we could have had a little better weather.
This was an awesome first class Tour in a great part of Europe.
Additional included tours were provided but not listed in the brochure. A plus. Lots of vineyards and lots of castles.
The trip was wonderful. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful trip with both Monogram and Avalon. We Totally enjoyed our experience. Would definitely recommend both travel companies to others.
This trip exceeded our expectations...have already booked our new trip through Affordable and recommended Affordable and Avalon River cruise to others.
Had a great time Avelon ship great food great all was good
