Cruising Itinerary

Sunday: Embark in Amsterdam
Welcome aboard the MPS Rotterdam. Time to explore your ship or discover Amsterdam, with its enchanting canals and fascinating museums.
Monday: Amsterdam to Volendam
Today you’ll enjoy a visit to the spectacular Keukenhof Gardens, the largest flower garden in the world. We set sail this evening for Volendam famous for gabled houses and the high, pointed bonnets, most recognizable of the Dutch traditional costumes, that some residents still wear.
Tuesday: Volendam to Hoorn
After a leisurely morning and lunchtime cruising, we arrive in Hoorn. Hoorn is known as museum town. One of the museums has made use of a former cheese warehouse, showcasing the city’s history.
Wednesday: Hoorn – Enkhuizen – Rotterdam
Enjoy breakfast as we cruise to Enkhuizen. There is so much to explore in this well-preserved town – including two magnificent 15th-century churches, the largely intact 17th-century city walls, and the 17th-century city hall.
Thursday: Rotterdam to Antwerp
Most of the day is yours to experience Rotterdam, including the important nautical history of the area at the Maritime Museum. We sail for Antwerp in the evening.
Friday: Antwerp
A full day to enjoy the delights of Antwerp. There’s the country’s most impressive cathedral, cobbled lanes, the medieval riverfront fortress, the home of Pieter Paul Rubens and the Diamond Quarter. The hardest part is deciding what to see first!
Saturday: Antwerp to Brussels
A relaxing day of cruising as we make our way to Belgium to arrive in the city of Brussels - home to the finest chocolate and tempting Belgian beers. Take time out to read a book, or simply relax and take in the views and reflect on your time exploring the delights of Holland and Belgium.
Sunday: Disembark in Brussels
Time to say a fond farewell to the MPS Rotterdam.
