Spring River Cruises including Floriade


Once every ten years, the Netherlands hosts Floriade – a World Horticulture Exposition showcasing garden-inspired exhibits from around the globe. In 2012, a full day visit to Floriade’s “theatre of nature” in Venlo is a highlight of our riverboat cruise through the inland waterways of Belgium and Holland aboard ms Swiss Sapphire, ms Swiss Jewel or new-for-2011 ms Treasures – making your ringside seat for nature’s colorful show that much more spectacular! Check out the Aalsmeer Flower Auction and visit Keukenhof Gardens or Haarlem in Holland’s bulb country. Take a private cruise through Amsterdam’s canals and experience the past at the Zuiderzee Museum. Taste Belgian beer, observe cheese-weighing in Gouda and porcelain-making in Delft, and enjoy an interactive culinary experience at Château Neercanne – a Tauck Exclusive! Tour renowned art museums and World War II sites, and visit Bruges or Ghent, Brussels, Amsterdam, Antwerp, the Hague and more on this most popular of Holland cruises.
