DAY 2 - Arriving this morning in Amsterdam ready to explore the compact Dutch capital after breakfast. Amsterdam, is a youthful city with an engaging buzz, shaped partly by its liberal attitudes and counter-culture but it is also a heavy weight when it comes to the world of art with more than its fair share of masterpieces at the Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum. Take time out to sip a coffee in one of the traditional, bare-floored brown cafés or one of the many designer bars or grand cafés. Stroll along the tree-lined canals past the beautiful gabled houses and merchants' mansions. Sail overnight to Antwerp. Full board.
DAY 3 - Wake up this morning in Antwerp. One of Europe's largest ports, Antwerp is renowned throughout the world as the centre of the diamond trade. With its charming medieval streets and remarkable renaissance buildings, Belgium's second largest city is a delight. Historic guild houses and Antwerp's imposing Town Hall with its rows of colourful European flags surround the cobbled stone main square, the Grote Markt. The focal point of the city skyline is the towering Gothic spire of the Cathedral of Our Lady. Re-board the Columbus to sail back to Tilbury overnight. Full board.
