Holland

The water is a way of life in Holland, a nation born of the sea and the rivers that flow across its pastoral flat lands. On an Amsterdam canal, you will cruise leisurely past turning windmills, fields of colorful tulips, quaint villages, cosmopolitan cities and it will usher you into a realm unique in boating. It’s a place to explore at your own pace, inviting you to ease into an unhurried journey like no other. These are nice cruises:
