Page Text Content

Enjoy a private tour of the Beatles Museum in Alkmaar Idyllic Alkmaar Look forward to exploring Amsterdam by land and water Adventures ashore The Fab Tour On the first day of your cruise you will moor in Beverwijk from where you can join an included excursion which visits Alkmaar's Beatles Museum ­ the largest in the world ­ which will remain open `after hours' exclusively for our guests. The museum is the culmination of the combination of two separate private collections of memorabilia. See the original record contract signed by the band and a selection of outfits worn by the stars during performances in the Netherlands in the 1960s. The location is fitting as Alkmaar is where John Lennon's first guitar was made. Be a Day Tripper While in Zaandem, you might wish to join an optional six-hour visit to the magnificent Keukenhof Gardens ­ one of the largest and most revered flower gardens in the world. Over seven million spring bulbs bloom in its 32 hectares, filling the air with perfume and offering stupendous displays. It claims to be the most beautiful spring garden in the world and here you'll see a mass of tulips, hyacinths and daffodils amid the beautifully landscaped grounds. Of course the show of blooms are weather dependent, but they're normally in flower for eight weeks from mid-March to mid-May. You can also find out more about garden design trends and get ideas from seven inspirational gardens. Capital gains Amsterdam has a wealth of charms ­ as many of which as possible have been packed into your included canal cruise and coach tour. However we have also ensured you have two free afternoons to explore the friendly and picturesque city independently too. It's easy to make your own way around this compact and pedestrian-friendly city, especially should you opt to utilise our provided interactive map and audio headset. Perhaps explore the Royal Palace on Dam Square, see Anne Frank House or admire the paintings of Van Gogh. The floating flower market, the Central Railway Station ­ which is built on thousands of wooden piles ­ or the grand 19th-century Rijksmuseum are also well worth a visit. 6 nights FULL BOARD from £1249^ Including optional travel insurance or from £1229^ without insurance§ Your cruise includes VIP door-to-door travel service · 6 breakfasts, 5 lunches and 6 dinners · Wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner · All Gratuities on board · Saga Team · Optional travel insurance underwritten by Great Lakes Insurance SE, UK · Return coach travel via Eurotunnel or ferry.
