This afternoon, an optional tour brings the chance to visit the Atomium, a striking futuristic structure that's now an iconic symbol of the city.

The ancient trading port of Antwerp, the 'Diamond Capital of the World,' offers a wealth of museums, including the studio of artist Peter Paul Rubens, as well as a fine Gothic cathedral and a bustling cafe life on the streets surrounding the vast Grote Markt. This afternoon's optional excursion visits the city's historic De Koninck brewery, where you'll have the chance to sample their delicious Belgian beer.

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.

Disabled access

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.

All other drinks are not included. The drinks package must be purchased by every person occupying a particular cabin.


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.

The majority of cabins on board are 10.5m square. Single cabins are approximately 7.7m square. (These measurements include the bathroom.)
