Amsterdam is just the beginning. On this cruise along the Rhine river, you’ll have three days to spend in this laid-back and forward-thinking Dutch hotspot, along with stops in the port-town of Hoorn, urban Cologne, and winegrowing Rüdesheim. You’ll spend several nights out on the town. And you’ll get your fix of famous artwork, incredible scenery, Dutch cheese, German beer and so much more on this in-depth look into European history and culture.
