Catch the Eurostar from either London St Pancras or Ebbsfleet International station to Brussels, then take an onward connecting train to Amsterdam. Board Olympia and settle in, enjoying your first dinner on board and perhaps stepping ashore to discover the buzzing atmosphere of the Dutch capital.
This morning's optional canal cruise is the perfect way to discover this vibrant city of canals and cobblestones, with its imposing Royal Palace, renowned Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum, and countless cafes. Shortly after lunch, Olympia slips away from the city, and cruises into the delightful countryside of South Holland, arriving in Schoonhoven after dinner.
Discover historic Schoonhoven, famed for the gold and silver smithing celebrated in the town's fascinating museum. This afternoon, enjoy our included walking tour of the UNESCO-listed village of Kinderdijk, with its historic windmills. Later, Olympia sails on to the great maritime city of Rotterdam, for an overnight stay.
Spend the morning exploring historic Rotterdam, or join the optional morning excursion to the beguiling 'Golden Age' town of Delft, former home to painter Johannes Vermeer, and visit its renowned pottery factory, famed for its distinctive ceramics. This afternoon, Olympia sails north to the Markermeer fishing port of Hoorn.
Wander the pretty streets of Hoorn this morning, then join this afternoon's included excursion to Keukenhof Gardens. Have your camera at the ready to capture the wonderful sight of some seven million flowers carpeting the ground in a breathtaking horticultural display.
Re-join Olympia in Amsterdam for a last evening and dinner on board.
