DAY 1 - London to Amsterdam


Spirits will be festive today as we link up in London ready for our King's Day extravaganza. Grab any last minute orange attire then climb onto the coach and get acquainted with the posse. 


Shortly before we find our ferry to cross the English Channel, we'll be taking in the coastline beauty of the White Cliffs of Dover. They owe their gorgeousness to their composition of chalk - you're feeling astounded and we haven't even left the UK!


Off the ferry we arrive in the port town of Calais - French soil! We travel north via Belgium before reaching...Amsterdam!


Cross off another country off your list as you cruise through Belgium on your way to Amsterdam.


Here we are! Home of good times and cuteness galore. Fun fact: the city has 1539 bridges, 165 canals, and 2500 house boats. Yes, you read that right, and it's all here for you to explore. Dutch National Day might be two days off, but that doesn't mean we need to delay our celebratory mood - we have a canal cruise & a few beverages to sign up for! 

DAY 2 - Amsterdam - King's Day


Alright party people - today is the day! You and a casual 1 million other people shall be taking to the streets of Amsterdam to celebrate this fine country via a frenzy of costumes, parades, live music, markets & general mayhem. This has got to be one of the best street parties around and this year you're part of it! Orange is definitely the new black when it comes to what to wear, so make sure you've got the threads at the ready. The locals take to the streets with goods to sell, everything from vintage clothes to beers. Out on the water the canals are dotted with boats, there is music, bars and people...the only way to describe it is pretty much AMAZING.

DAY 3 - Amsterdam


Today we can opt to explore the endless museums of the city like the Rijks, taste the local Heineken drop in its true home, make a sobering stop at Anne Frank Museum, and that's just the tip of the iceberg of goodness to be found. For those that like the laid-back approach, do some shopping, or just kick back amongst their famed cafe culture. Tonight we'll roam the city checking out the infamous Red Light District and get the A to Z from our team on the facts of the city, then opt for a Volendam dinner for some traditional fishing village vibes on the waterfront. 

DAY 4 - Amsterdam to London


Fuel up on a recovery breakfast before we load ourselves onto the coach and head out of Amsterdam, promising to visit again the same time next year. 





Team squeals - we did it! We survived a colossal canal-side party & added to our already fabulous collection of European memories. Next up: the summer sailing season! Are we right?
