Itinerary

Day 1: Portsmouth

Today you will embark the Saga Pearl II in Portsmouth.

Day 2 & 3: Ijmuiden

Just an hour from IJmuiden lies magical Amsterdam with its canals, museums and beautiful buildings. Join a twilight canal cruise and see the city from the water as you sail past Amsterdam’s famous tall houses that flank the waterfront, and discover the maze of canals that make this city famous. You may also be tempted to join a guided pub crawl – Amsterdam is home to many craft breweries in addition to well-known ones – as well as Dutch gin known as ‘genever’.

The following day why not treat yourself to another day in cosmopolitan Amsterdam, grab a map and start to explore! Apart from the joy of strolling cobbled streets beside peaceful canals, art lovers can head for the famous Rijksmuseum, or the sublime Van Gogh Museum where the artist’s history is traced through his work. Visit the house of Rembrandt, or Anne Frank, take in a museum or two, browse the fleamarket or just shop before enjoying some people-watching from one of the city’s many charming cafes.

Day 4: Zeebrugge

Zeebrugge is well placed whether you want to hop on the shuttle bus to the nearby town of Blankenberge for a spot of shopping, or make your way to historic Bruge, with its wealth of Flemish buildings, canals and enchanting vistas. Alternatively set off to learn about a battle that brought 20 years of conflict to an end on an optional excursion that looks at the Emperor Napoleon and the Battle of Waterloo – one of Belgium’s most famous battles.

Day 5: Portsmouth

Today you will arrive in Portsmouth to end your cruise.
