'Panache' - Holland (2017)

The opportunity to sample fresh local cheese in Alkmaar is just one of the highlights of this languid journey through Holland. See iconic flower fields from a hot tub on deck as you drift by spectacular, colorful fields. Visit the world's largest flower market at Aalsmeer and walk through Keukenhof Gardens with its prolific blooms. Immerse yourself in historic, charming Amsterdam, tour Rembrandt's birthplace in Leiden, and visit the fabled porcelain factory in Delft, where you see its world-famous pottery being hand painted. Back on board, watch your gourmet chef prepare dinner with ingredients purchased at the morning market. Itineraries can be arranged for chartering parties with special interests, such as food or walking.
