The landscape is immaculate, with shimmering

lakes, mature trees and wonderful works of art. and although the crowds can get busy at times, Keukenhof emanates an underlining peaceful ambience that soothes the soul. Visit the capital city of the Netherlands. 

MV ESMERALSA ***

The MV Esmeralda has become a firm favourite for river cruising, and is a comfortable vessel decorated in traditional Dutch style. The 63 cabins are all the same size and all have air conditioning, TV, mini safe and en-suite bathroom with shower, toilet and washstand. The lounge and reception area are located on the upper deck, and the tastefully decorated restaurant is located on the main deck. There is a lift between the promenade deck and the main deck, as well as a chair lift to the sun deck. The Esmeralda is an ideal floating hotel for those who like the traditional ambience to go hand in hand with modern comforts.
