copyright Laurens LindhoutThis month we have a superb 5-night cruise for two from CroisiEurope, on Ijsselmeer, one of the largest lakes in the Netherlands, in the heart of authentic towns and villages. You’ll be able to visit historical monuments, such as a 17th century mill and old fishing ports. And if you like cheese, especially Edam and Gouda, you might enjoy a trip to a museum dedicated to it in Alkmaar! There’s a chance to meet clogmakers too, who use traditional methods to make the comfortable wooden footwear. Explore Amsterdam on the canal boats or by bike: the absolutely authentic way to experience this marvellous city, with its relaxed atmosphere, interesting buildings, narrow canal houses, charming bridges and outstanding museums. There’s the chance to cycle around the friendly town of Hoorn too, it has a welcoming character. April is a perfect time to visit the magnificent Keukenhof Garden, the largest flower gardens in the world, with over 7 million bulbs (not just tulips) planted each year in 79 acres. Feast your eyes on a magical array of colours in a peaceful setting, with attractive trees too, creating an enchanting environment.

    I have a cousin who lives in Holland but when I visit we tend to just stay in Rotterdam as she can not get out and about much. I have never seen the bulb fields and it would be lovely to have such a luxurious trip to a country that I have come to love.

    Been meaning to visit the Netherlands for ages.
    Always seem to let Barbados, Costa Rica, Oman/Jordan, and so on get in the way. But just discovered cruising and what better way to be introduced.

    What a lovely prize, I did go and see the tulips many years ago, must of been about 35 years now! I can still recall the wonderful display of tulips in all colours even now, so just shows you how good they are! It would be fantastic to go on this cruise and see all those sights in the beautiful Netherlands. Thank you for offering this Competition, a real winner!

    Every year when I put in my new bulbs my thoughts go to their very existance and influence in the Netherlands Culteral and Industrial history. I have never visited or seen acreage of these wonderful varying colour bobbing heads but it gives me great heart pleasure to recognise Spring is going on its way when I see their wonderful brightness to blow away the gray Winter cobwebs in my own little plot. I would love to go.

    I have been married to my wife and soulmate for just over five years now, and we've been together for a total of seven years. We have had a number of holidays together in this time, but it was only fairly recently that I found out that she gets as excited as a box of frogs when on a cruise. I found this out having booked a short two night cruise for us in Halong Bay while we were in Vietnam. I would dearly like to win this prize, as I'd like to surprise her with it, and once more get to witness her giddy excitement and joy at being on a cruise.

    Ooh - this sounds amazing! I visited Amsterdam many years ago and would love to return now I’m at a different stage of life, as well be able to learn so much more about the Netherlands today. I remember the art in Amsterdam was wonderful, the people were really friendly and we cycled everywhere. Good memories - I’d love to make some more!
