Reveiw of cruising in the Netherlands...

"The base staff were extremely kind and helpful. She took her time to understand what were hoping to see and do on our short vacation in the Netherlands and guided us through the alternative waterways. She explained the different options clearly and helped us make the right decision for our vacation. The Netherlands were great for a short vacation! We went to Muiden, Weesp and down to Maarsen and Utrecht. It was so picturesque and quite relaxing. Beautiful scenery and mooring next to the windmill in Weesp was a treat."
