Best of Belgium & Holland New Year's Cruise
We've sailed this fantastic itinerary a few years ago and fell in love with both Holland and Belgium. Come see for yourself!
Immerse yourself in a feast for the senses as you travel through the Netherlands and Belgium. Taste rich Belgian chocolates and listen to the distinctive clanks and charms of mechanical instruments at Utrecht’s Museum Speelklok. Admire the beautiful architecture and artistry of castles that include Utrecht’s de Haar, Brussels’ Beersel and Ghent’s Caste of the Counts of Flanders. Inhale the aroma of freshly pressed Belgian waffles and Dutch street fries. As a diverse array of knowledgeable and gracious local guides share each destination’s unique history with you, you’ll return from this cruise having experienced the best of Holland and Belgium!

Top 10 Reasons Why AmaWaterways Outshines Other River Cruise Lines:
- Ships are built with lower draft and less weight – This allows them to sail in more extreme water conditions. A common problem in river cruising is high and low water situations. AmaWaterways ships are less susceptible to these issues
- More Excursions Included – AmaWaterways offers an excursion in every port and a lot more choices – many lines only offer 1 excursion per day with limited choices.
- Bikes onboard – AmaWaterways not only has bikes onboard but they also offer bike excursions
- Local Wines – When in Austria enjoy Austrian wines, Budapest enjoy Hungarian wines. Other lines give you house wines or charge you a fee for an upgraded wine package.
- Chef’s Table Restaurant – Watch the chef prepare an amazing meal right before your eyes. This wonderful experience is included for all guests.
- Dining Room Oversized – No rush to be seated for dinner, there is plenty of room for everyone
- Less Passengers – AmaWaterways twin balcony ships are the same physical size as other ships but the Ama ships carry about 30 less passengers. When other lines have to bring out folding chairs for entertainment and informational sessions Ama can comfortably fit every passenger.
