Sailing from Newcastle aboard Balmoral
||Tue 14 Apr, 2020
||Fred Olsen Balmoral
Experience the delights of five countries on this springtime escape with stops in Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. An overnight stay in Antwerp gives you time to explore this medieval city with its Diamond District, riverside fortress and the soaring tower of the Cathedral of Our Lady. Amsterdam has canals lined with graceful merchants houses as well as attractions such as Anne Frank’s house and the Rijksmuseum. It is also your gateway to visiting the world famous gardens of Keukenhof in all their springtime glory. From here, enjoy scenic cruising through the North Sea Canal then Germany’s picturesque Kiel Canal as you sail past Second World War fortifications, quaint villages and impressive bridges. Copenhagen beckons with its Little Mermaid statue and colourful waterfront seventeenth century townhouses that are now bars and restaurants. Sweden’s laid-back seaport of Gothenburg has Dutch designed canals as well as the must see Garden Society of Gothenburg – one of Europe’s best kept parks. Your final port is Brevik, Norway’s well preserved town with narrow streets and beautiful architecture.
