Canals, Commerce & Culture

Spend the August Bank Holiday Weekend on board Columbus as she cruising across the Channel to two of Northern Europe's most historic ports. Explore Amsterdam’s cobbled streets, flower markets, bars and museums, and perhaps experience the city from a different angle on a canal cruise. Enjoy a night of good company, great food and spectacular entertainment on board Columbus as she cruises down the Dutch coast, then step ashore to explore Antwerp.

Built on the wealth of the diamond trade, and home to a string of world famous artists - including Rubens, Breugel, van Dyck and even (briefly) Van Gogh - Antwerp is an elegant, enchanting city. Stroll across the Grote Markt and through pretty cobbled streets, see the city’s beautiful cathedral and magnificent railway station, and perhaps even head underground to discover the secret canals and waterways of the Ruien
