    This would be just the thing to celebrate my 65th birthday with my lovely wife of 35 years.

    This is a fabulous prize. I have such wonderful memories of my time in Belgium and Holland, mostly Army days back in the 1960s/70s, and have revisited both countries a few times since as well as a trip to Lille (French Flanders). Hugely underrated area of Europe, friendly people and amazing food especially for a 'moules et frites' lover like me. Like everyone else I would love to win this.

    Would love to win this and take my lovely mum as she would get seasick on a sea cruise! I would love the beer and chocolates of course :)

    This sounds wonderful, we took our first holiday abroad this year on a cruise to the Norwegian Fjords, so to have the chance of going on a river cruise would be the icing on the cake!

    This sounds lovely. Have often wondered what a river cruise would be like and the ports if call sound fascinating. I have never been to any of the places mentioned so would be lovely to discover these.

    Sounds lovely, gentle cruising along the waterways and stops to visit all the interesting cities, and no driving along busy roads.

    Fantastic prize, would definitely float our boat! We have never been on a cruise before (and our last holiday was over 10 years ago) - so would love to win this amazing scenic Dutch river cruise. It sounds like a lovely unique way to experience the beauty and architectural history of this wonderful country.

    Beautiful prize! We've been to Holland many times and have friends there. We've mainly had Ocean Cruises but have also had a river cruise on the Mosel. Enjoyed all the wines and vineyards an the journey.

    Have cruised the Nile and it was fabulous. So enjoyed watching the world go by as we sailed along. Nothing to see at sea!!
    Brilliant prize

    I'd love to go on a river cruise, particularly this one as it's so long since I last went to Amsterdam and the Netherlands. It certainly seems more appealing than a sea cruise, , I went on one many years ago and found there's only so much sea that I need to see.

    We've never been on a cruise before as the thought of days on the open sea does not appeal to me .
    But a river cruise, that could be really enjoyable! Watching the beautiful Flanders countryside pass by, seeing Holland from a river rather than a motorway, it all sounds very tempting.

    My husband served in the Royal Navy for 32 years and says he doesn't want to go on a cruise. This would be a great chance to show him he is wrong-it would not be like work at all!

    I've done sea cruises and loved them but I feel there may be a lot of road travel at either end to get me to and from any river. I would be happy to be corrected on this as I'm seriously tempted.

    I think I could persuade my reluctant husband to try a river cruise and who knows, maybe a longer sea going one if he tries it and likes it. I know that I would - and to win this wonderful prize might open up new horizons for us as we head towards our diamond wedding.

    Have been trying to persuade my husband to have a go at cruising without success so far. If we won this he could hardly say no!!!

    Although I have visited the Netherlands before I didn't get the chance to cruise the waterways which would be absolutely wonderful.

    Have never done any cruising .. unless cattle class on a Channel Ferry counts ! Would love our first experience to be an experience such as this. Fingers crossed.

    Waterway to have a holiday: this sounds wonderful! I'd love to go Double Dutch on this holiday with my partner, taking in the culture and cuisine as we cruise the waterways of northern Europe.

    A dream holiday. Unpack once and wake up somewhere new every day. Bliss.
    Plus no cooking and washing up!
