Explore the fascinating maritime history of the Netherlands, from the comfort of your very own small ship cruise. Start with Amsterdam’s beautiful canals, which allow you to see the famous canal-side houses of the Old Town and get a sense for how this city has grown up around the canals and rivers. From there, visit Rotterdam, said to be the world’s busiest port and see how it has recovered from the devastation of World War II, or for something a little more light-hearted, visit Enkhuizen, a quintessential Dutch fishing village.
