With a destination to explore every single day, plenty of highlights – from iconic tulip fields in full bloom to world-famous diamonds and chocolates – awaiting discovery in each, and relaxing evenings of scenic cruising aboard Bolette to enjoy too, this five-night escape to Holland and Belgium makes for a rewarding Bank Holiday city break.

Your smaller ship will sail to Rotterdam, where the sight of the Erasmusbrug Bridge is bound to impress, and a fantastic collection of museums, galleries and futuristic architectural gems are yours to discover ashore: the unusual Markthal and Cube Houses are particular highlights. Then, after a peaceful navigation of the Nieuwe Maas, it’s on to the Dutch capital, Amsterdam. Your visit to this effervescent city is timed to afford an opportunity to explore the Keukenhof Gardens, an invigorating feast for the senses at this time of year. The famous tulips fields will be in seasonal full bloom, bursting with vibrant colour and sweet floral fragrance. Alternatively, you could use your time to take in world-famous attractions, such as the haunting Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum and the grand mansions of the UNESCO-listed Canal Ring; or opt to take to Amsterdam’s iconic canals. A boat tour of the city, passing underneath low bridges and through charming districts, is an unforgettable way to see the sights.

Soon after departing Amsterdam via the North Sea Canal, you then reach Antwerp for an overnight stay in Belgium’s sparkling second city. You’ll have ample time to uncover Antwerp’s gems at your own pace, and Bolette will dock in the heart of the destination: The main square, Grote Markt, with its intricate 16th century guildhouses, and the mighty Cathedral of our Lady are just some of the highlights reassuringly close-by. The Royal Museum of Fine Arts and the legendary Diamond District are amongst Antwerp’s most prized possessions; you can seek them out on all-encompassing walking tours that also afford opportunities to sample delicious, traditionally made Belgian chocolates too. Antwerp is also an ideal starting point for captivating tours to the attractions and artisan chocolatiers of nearby Ghent too.

  • From 1 January 2021, new rules apply on travel within Europe.

    Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air.

    New rules apply when travelling to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure:

    Passport
    British passport holders need to have at least six months left on their passport and it needs to be less than ten years old.
    These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.
    Visa
    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.
    Border Control
    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You may also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens when queueing.
    Healthcare Cover
    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad. Your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will no longer be valid. It’s particularly important you have travel insurance with the right cover if you have a pre-existing medical condition. This is because the EHIC scheme covers pre-existing conditions, while many travel insurance policies do not. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.
    Mobile Roaming
    From 1 January 2021, the guarantee of free mobile phone roaming throughout the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway will end.
    Check with your phone operator to find out about any roaming charges you might get from 1 January 2021.
