3 years ago we did Budapest to Amsterdam and enjoyed, this year we did the reverse and would recommend doing our first option. The hotel and cruise director great. The Opal is a new ship and very nice. The only fault we had was at the buffet, breakfast and lunch, the food was not hot or warm. The meat was still red and we would have preferred it to be At least pink when cooked. Leaving from Amsterdam, we felt that the excursions were rushed as it was afternoons and the ship had to sail. This is our personal opinion. The trip was fantastic all in all.

  • Windmills Driving Tour
    A beautiful place, great to see the windmills and get an idea of the history.
    The stop over of the cheese farm was also yummy as you were given cheese tasting
