Catch the high-speed Eurostar from London St Pancras or Ebbsfleet to Amsterdam via Brussels. Join Olympia in the Dutch capital, arriving in time for dinner, before she slips away out into the Markermeer early in the morning.
Today begins in Hoorn, a traditional 17th-century town that was formerly an important base for the Dutch East India Company, and is home to a replica of the company's infamous merchant ship - the Batavia. Cross the lake to Lelystad, where you can opt to join an excursion to Het Loo Palace - the former residence of the Dutch royal family - this afternoon.
Olympia's final call is at Zaandam, where a canal runs past vibrant the green-painted houses and traditional Dutch windmills that dot the landscape. Claude Monet depicted this charming city in a number of his paintings, having spent some time here during the late 1800s.
Today's spectacular excursion is to dazzling Keukenhof Gardens, world-renowned for their colourful floral displays. Enjoy a stroll or a boat ride through multi-coloured scenery, and stop for coffee or refreshments at one of the cafes along the way.
This afternoon, return to the ship in Amsterdam, choosing to enjoy your final evening relaxing on board or opting to join a cheese and wine canal cruise to take in the sights from the water.
Disembark in Amsterdam, and transfer back to the train station for your rail journey home.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
Optional shore excursions
Optional excursions are available on all cruises, and we recommend that you book now to secure your place. If the number of bookings needed to operate any excursion is not reached, the excursion may be cancelled. In this case your payment will be refunded in full.
The majority of cabins on board are 10.5m square. Single cabins are approximately 7.7m square. (These measurements include the bathroom.) Standard Promenade cabins are 15m square and most have double beds (which do not convert to sofas), but they do not have a table or stool and will by subject to engine noise during overnight and early morning sailing.
The tap water on board is safe to drink, but may not be to your taste due to the purification system.
On rare occasions, the Captain may need to alter the Cruise Itinerary. If this happens, the Cruise Manager will keep passengers informed.
Pre-paid drinks package
Spend just £17.50 per person per night, and enjoy unlimited draught beer, house wine and soft drinks (including water, tea and coffee) between 10am and midnight while on board Olympia. All other drinks are not included. The drinks package must be purchased by every person occupying a particular cabin.
Where possible, non-rigid suitcases are easier to store within your cabin.
The dress code on board and ashore is casual. After 7pm, in the lounge and restaurant, shorts are not permitted, and footwear and a shirt or T-shirt must be worn.
Tipping is not compulsory, but from experience we know that many passengers like to leave gratuities for the crew. An envelope will be left in your cabin for this purpose.
