Fairport Convention / Fascinating Aida

The Harmony Voyages experience....

Prepare to be spoiled .... Our goal is to ensure that you enjoy an unforgettable and stress-free stay with our partners Amadeus River Cruises and enjoy top class entertainment in a comfortable, relaxed environment.

A floating luxury boutique hotel that leaves no wish unfulfilled; wide panoramic windows, spacious magnificence and timeless elegance, coupled with excellent hospitality. Allow yourself to be looked after by attentive staff who will endeavour to serve you with whatever you require.

HOORN

Included in your 3 night mini-break is a short sailing to the picturesque Dutch town of Hoorn: a welcoming place, rich in tradition, and not far from Amsterdam. Enjoy Hoorn at your own pace or join the guided optional relaxed walking tour. Step back in time to the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century, when Holland was one of the most influential countries in the world. Visit the lively harbour and shopping street, and learn about Jan Pietersz Coen, son of Hoorn and founder of the former Indonesian city Batavia (now Jakarta). Touching the façade of the Saint John Hospice is said to bring luck, visit the hidden love chapel — once built as a secret place for a forbidden Catholic/Protestant couple to wed.

AMSTERDAM

It's often said that when you go to Amsterdam, Amsterdam visits you. A city so rich in culture, sitting up to four metres below sea level with its myriad of canal systems and hundreds of thousands of bicycles, Amsterdam is truly unique. Around every corner there is something new to explore. The many extraordinary districts around the city centre are something not to be missed, with the museum district housing the Van Gogh museum and works by Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Rijksmuseum. The trendy Jordaan district is flanked by indie boutiques, cozy pubs and hip eateries. You'll understand why there's always something to draw you back to Amsterdam.
