Board the coach at your pick-up point, and travel to Dover to cross the Channel and join Olympia in the Dutch capital, Amsterdam. This evening, enjoy dinner before the ship slips out into the Markermeer to moor overnight in the former fishing village and artists' retreat of Volendam.
This morning you'll have time to wander Volendam's streets before Olympia crosses the inland sea to Lelystad. Join our optional afternoon excursion to the garden city of Apeldoorn and the elegant Het Loo Palace, or relax on board, before Olympia heads back across the Markermeer to Zaandam - once home to Tsar Peter the Great and inspiration for the windmill paintings of Claude Monet.
This morning's included excursion is to the Keukenhof gardens, where some seven million flowers carpet the ground. Perhaps stop in one of the restaurants and cafes, or take a boat ride (payable locally) through the gardens. Later, rejoin Olympia in Amsterdam for a final afternoon and evening on board. You might join our optional Amsterdam canal cruise - perhaps the best way to see the sights of the city.
Bid farewell to Olympia, and begin your coach journey home, arriving back in the local area in the late evening.
Modern, well-equipped Olympia offers all you could wish to ensure that you enjoy every moment of your Rhine cruise. Offering accommodation and dining facilities for just under a hundred passengers, the ship has a warm, intimate feeling about her the minute you step on board.
