In 2020, Avalon Waterways is unveiling five cruises – including three new itineraries – that invite travelers to Europe for Tulip Time cruises through Holland and Belgium. The new itineraries include 8-day Tulip Time in Holland & Belgium, 8-day Tulip Time Highlights, and 15-day Grand Tulip Cruise of Holland & Belgium.
Avalon’s new 8-day Tulip Time in Holland & Belgium vacation begins in Amsterdam and ends in Brussels with opportunities to bike the river banks of Arnhem, take a guided walk through a mill and bake a Vlaai, spend time in Namur, walk through the streets of the “Fiery City” of Liége, visit the Grote Markt in Antwerp and meander along the Lower Town Streets of Brussels.
The river cruise company’s other new 8-day itinerary – Tulip Time Highlights – begins in Brussels with opportunities to explore Ghent – or alternatively, Bruges – a “last post” ceremony in Bossuit, a guided walk of the Delta Works, time spent in Rotterdam, an immersion in Dutch history in Zaandam, tulips, tulips, and more tulips in Haarlem, and ends with the sights of Amsterdam.
The river cruise company’s 15-day Grand Tulip Time Cruise of Holland & Belgium combines both new cruise itineraries, giving travelers an in-depth vacation featuring windmills, waterways and waving fields of flowers.
Other Tulip-focused itineraries include 8-day Tulip Time Cruise and Tulips of Northern Holland itineraries.
