11-Night Culture & Cuisine Voyage
Set out to sea from the Venice of the North-Amsterdam. Take in priceless works by Rembrandt and Van Gogh or cruise one of the city’s many canals before our evening departure.
Then it’s on to Rotterdam’s many markets and top-quality restaurants before an overnight in Antwerp, a foodie paradise with the most Michelin starred restaurants of any city in Europe.
In Bruges, wander the maze of its medieval core, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Savor a dish of moules-frites, mussels in broth served with fries, the unofficial national dish.
When we dock in Honfleur, it’s like stepping into an impressionist painting. Find a seat under a pretty awning at a waterfront café and enjoy a mug of Normandy’s famous cider and a galette, a savory pancake. Both Honfleur and our next stop, Cherbourg, played vital roles in the D-Day landings and we stay late in both ports. Lucky for us, the region is also a haven for food and cheese lovers.
Another late stay at St. Peter Port, allows you lots of time to explore Europe’s prettiest harbor town. Stop at a local seafront pub, cocktail bar or café for a sundowner, glass of wine, or cappuccino.
Enjoy a day at sea before a culinary and cultural change of pace. Dine on fresh seafood and meander along Paseo Maritimo in spectacular La Coruña before falling in love with Porto, a centuries-old city known for its robust port wine trade, where your outstanding journey wraps up.
