Modern, well-equipped Olympia offers all you could wish to ensure that you enjoy every moment of your Rhine cruise. With accommodation and dining facilities for just under a hundred passengers, the ship has a warm, intimate feeling about her from the minute you step on board.
Board the coach at your pick-up point, and travel to Dover to cross the Channel and join Olympia in the wonderful Dutch capital, Amsterdam. This evening, enjoy dinner before the ship slips out into the Markermeer to moor overnight in the former fishing village and artists' retreat of Volendam.
This morning you'll have time to wander Volendam's pretty streets before Olympia crosses the inland sea to Lelystad. Join our optional afternoon excursion to the garden city of Apeldoorn and the elegant Het Loo Palace, or relax on board, before Olympia heads back across the Markermeer to colourful Zaandam - once home to Tsar Peter the Great and inspiration for the windmill paintings of Claude Monet.
This morning's unforgettable included excursion is to the world-renowned Keukenhof Gardens, where some seven million flowers carpet the ground in a breathtaking display. Wander this floral paradise, perhaps stopping in one of the restaurants and cafes, or take a boat ride (payable locally) through the stunning gardens.
Later, rejoin Olympia in Amsterdam for a final afternoon and evening on board. You might join our optional Amsterdam canal cruise - perhaps the best way to see the sights of the city.
Bid farewell to Olympia, and begin your coach journey home, arriving back in the local area in the late evening.
