PACING:

  • The pace of this itinerary is moderate
  • Visit 8 ports of call in 10 days, cruising for 9 nights aboard a Vantage Deluxe European River Cruise Ship
  • Sailing distances between ports are relatively short, so you'll still have time to relax and enjoy the passing scenery from your river cruise
  • This tulip time cruise itinerary has been designed to give you an optimum amount of time at each port while allowing you the opportunity to enjoy overnight and full-day stays in many ports, with the ship sailing at optimum times

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS:

  • On your European river cruise, you'll have a chance to join included walking tours in select destinations that go at a more leisurely pace or some that go at a faster clip, depending upon your abilities and preferences. Either way, you won't miss any highlights
  • On some tours, you'll have free time to walk on your own
  • Canal tours may require embarking and disembarking a canal boat with a short flight of stairs
  • Expect multiple flights of stairs in some museums and in older houses
Please note: Vantage's owned fleet of river cruise ships have elevators, but tours are not intended for travelers using mobility aids like walkers and wheelchairs. There are steps onboard. 

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION:

  • All tours involve some walking over uneven terrain, cobblestone walkways, and flagstone paths, especially in ports of call like Schoonhoven and Hoorn
  • One or two tours may involve short uphill climbs
  • Panoramic city tours use air-conditioned private motorcoaches

CLIMATE:

  • March and April are generally chillier months for Belgium and the Netherlands
  • On average, expect highs in the 50s and lows in the mid-30s, depending on which month you travel
  • Rainfall can average about 8-10 days a month
  • Since the weather is unpredictable, please check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly
