Activities & Entertainment

Pax tour in Holland and BelgiumThis trip is rated Moderate

Many of your included sightseeing tours involve walking — occasionally on cobbled or uneven streets. If you wish to extend your walks, your Cruise Director or local guide can suggest scenic routes nearby. At the same time, there is plenty of time to relax during your river cruise, and should you wish to forego any activity, you are always at liberty to do so. For the fullest enjoyment of this river cruise, we recommend that you be in reasonably good health, and able to walk at least a mile unassisted.



Onboard Cooking & Cocktail Classes

Savor 5-star dining onboard Vantage river ships. Get ready to learn all the tricks of the trade — and enjoy face time with our world-class chefs — when you sign up for complimentary onboard cooking classes in our Captain’s Clubs. Depending on the season and region you’re sailing, you’ll be treated to hands-on presentations spotlighting local produce, as the chef whips up main dishes and savory soups, followed by a delightful tasting session. Held during lunch- or dinnertime depending on your sailing schedule, these meals will replace those served in the main dining room. Each cooking class meals comes with food for thought, too — the conversation of fellow passengers in an intimate group of just 30. Don’t miss out on your chance to raise a glass, either, in cocktail-making demonstrations and tasting in your ship’s bar. (Cocktails available for purchase.) Salut!



Pax biker in Holland and BelgiumLet's Go Biking!

Biking is not only a wonderful way to get some exercise, it is also a great way to explore the best of Europe. Your Deluxe river ship has complimentary bicycles on board for use during your free time, so just speak to your Cruise Director onboard to reserve one, or reserve up to three time slots in advance through your MyPortfolio account. Your Concierge will even lead some tours upon request! Click the links below for maps of suggested pathways. Your Cruise Director can point you in the right direction, which includes the routes below and those from www.bikemap.net. Vantage provides you maps, helmets, locks, and safety instructions.

Time permitting, you might cycle along the canals, and there are also bike rentals available in ports along our route — such as Terneheuzen, Antwerp, Arnhem, and Enkhuizen — where you can rent bicycles at an additional cost (should those on board be unavailable).

Please note that cycling tours are on a first-come, first-served basis and subject to weather conditions. They will operate for your safety at the discretion of your Concierge or Cruise Director.
