Itinerary

Welcome to Amsterdam, you will embark you ship today

Everyone has an image of Amsterdam. For some, it’s small boats gliding on the canals and locals two-wheeling on bikes to work. For others, it’s cobbled streets, important history and innovative design. For all, it’s tulips, windmills and extraordinary art… Vermeer, Van Gogh and Rembrandt. Come and find your own Amsterdam.
