We rise with the birds this morning, taking a trip to Aalsmeer to visit the vibrant flower auction and see the vividly hued blooms for which Holland is so famous. Alternatively, during the flowering season (April until mid-May), we'll enjoy an included visit to the tulip fields of Keukenhof - the mesmerising sight of several million flowering bulbs planted across a 70-acre will leave you in absolute awe. This afternoon, we travel through The Hague to the historic town of Delft and visit the Royal Delft Pottery workshop for a Cultural Insight into the manufacturing of this delicate hand-painted blue and white porcelain. We continue to edgy Rotterdam, where we'll enjoy two Cultural Insight experiences. Board a Spido boat cruise along the most important river port in Europe and ascend the iconic Euromast Tower for panoramic views of the city. This evening we stay on board the SS Rotterdam.

Rotterdam – Groesbeek – Arnhem – Oosterbeek

Explore the tragic history of Operation Market Garden in Groesbeek, whose residents were forced to flee intense battles which obliterated the city during World War II. Here we will visit the National Liberation Museum, built on one of the landing sites of this airborne operation and learn about the occupation and liberation of Holland. We travel north to Arnhem to see John Frost Bridge, so named to pay tribute to the commander of the British forces that held the bridge for four days with a mere 750 soldiers during the World War II Battle of Arnhem. This afternoon we'll also visit the Hoge Veluwe Park and the Kröller-Müller Museum, featuring the second-largest Van Gogh collection in the world. Buffet Breakfast
