October 27, 2016 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

The tulip season of Holland is best admired aboard hotel barge Panache with European Waterways, Europe’s largest luxury hotel barge cruise company.


Bookings made by 30 November 2016 for the Holland itinerary will be offered 10% off cabins and full-boat charters for selected 2017 departures in March, April and May.

For single travellers, European Waterways is waiving single supplements for 2, 16 and 30 April sailings on the Holland Tulip Cruise representing a saving of up to €1,800 pp.

The Spring departures aboard the stylish 12-passenger Panache, beginning on March 26, are timed especially when the flowers are in full bloom. The six-night itinerary uncovers Holland’s hidden gems showcasing its rich artistic and cultural history.

In addition to the fields of tulips, excursions include the Keukenhof Gardens, which treats visitors to 100 acres of stunning colour, that have earned it the designation of ‘the Garden of Europe’.


Cruises aboard Panache also include a visit to the Aalsmeer flower auction, where some 17 million cut flowers are traded every day. Guests can also tour the Royal Delft factory to see porcelain being handmade and painted. Other cruise highlights include the Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem, where guests will see its unique collection of Old Dutch Masters, and a visit to the historic city of Leiden, Rembrandt’s birthplace.

“The Panache is an ideal hotel barge for cruising in Holland,” says Derek Banks managing director of European Waterways. “With its panoramic windows and a large sundeck it is perfect for viewing the colourful and unique tulip season in the Netherlands.”

Discounted prices for cabin bookings (double occupancy) are from €3,915 per person, and from €38,250 per charter booking. Rates are all-inclusive; gourmet meals, fine wines, a champagne welcome, an open bar, all escorted excursions and admittance fees, local transfers and opportunities for independent bicycle exploration and the use of other hotel barge facilities such as a spa pool.
