Bruges, Medieval Flanders, Amsterdam & the Dutch Bulb Fields Cruise Review

“This is a great cruise as there is plenty of time in Amsterdam and the chance to explore other areas and cities we certainly hadn’t encountered before. Ghent and Bruges are stunning and full of surprises, but the cruise highlight must be the Dutch Bulb Fields. Sign up if you want something a little bit different, but what you can expect on each trip is the fabulous cruise ship with luxury cabins and amazing food – this is a given with Riviera Travel.”
