You might like to join an optional walking tour around the attractive harbour town of Hoorn, once home to many an adventurous mariner ­ including Abel Tasman and J P Coen, founders of the Dutch East India Company. As a result of its early seafaring wealth, Hoorn boasts many pretty historic buildings, notably the State Council building, which houses the Westfries Museum and its fascinating collection of ceramic tiles, silver, china and model ships. The best of Brussels You'll have a full day to enjoy the delights of the Belgian capital. You might wish to join an included walking tour, or join one of our optional Unique Experiences designed to give you the chance to enjoy the local food and culture. After disembarking your ship and meeting your guide, take a stroll into the city centre from where you will begin a walking tour of the Belgian capital themed around the famous Belgian passion for chocolate. Along the way look forward to learning about the history of chocolate production in the country, watch a master chocolatier at work and, yes, of course, taste some local delicacies. Glorious Ghent Look forward to spending time in the typically Flemish city of Ghent where quaint timber-framed buildings mixed with stone fortifications jostle for space among a network of canals. You can join an included city tour to discover the best of the city's Flemish flavour. As you wander through the cobbled streets and attractive squares, keep an eye out for the 91-metre-high bell tower of the medieval Cloth Hall. There are also other fine Gothic buildings and canals to explore and you can enjoy stunning views from St Michael's Bridge. Alternatively you might prefer to join a Unique Experience which will allow you to enjoy the sights from an entirely different perspective ­ a canal cruise. 14 nights FULL BOARD from £1999^ Including optional travel insurance or from £1945^ without insurance§ Your cruise includes VIP door-to-door travel service · 14 breakfasts, 13 lunches and 14 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.
