La Nouvelle Etoile
Holland Cruise

The La Nouvelle Etoile  slowly plies along picturesque inland waterways of Holland, France and Belgium lined with magnificent foliage and speckled with charming towns.

The La Nouvelle Etoile includes a large sun deck with jacuzzi, a main deck with a panoramic  lounge, a bar area with piano, a dining room, a fitness room and an elevator.  There are 4 oversized  suites (over 200 square feet), featuring flat screen monitors with internet connection, satellite television and video, double sink bathrooms with large showers.

Meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout - from the selection of the linens, to the fresh fruit and flowers in each suite.  The warm, elegant teak interiors, subtle color schemes and pleasant furnishings invite you to relax and enjoy.

After your pick-up by our driver you will be taken to the barge moored in the center of Haarlem for a champagne welcome. We will relax for the afternoon with a cruise to Zaandam, where we will moor for the night and you will enjoy your first gourmet dinner on board.

After an elegant breakfast we will take a short drive to the Zaanse Schans to visit a working windmill, a clog maker and a cheese maker. In the afternoon we will cruise to Amsterdam, through the heart of the city where the small canals and architecture will take you back to a previous century and then along the Amstel River to Ouderkerk.

An early rise and drive to the colorful flower auction in Aalsmeer. Upon return we will set off for a cruise on the canals to the cheese Mecca of Gouda. After lunch, we will take a drive out to a local cheese farm. Besides cheese, you will find beautiful buildings, excellent shopping and the most magnificent stained glass windows in Holland.

A morning cruise to Rotterdam through the center of this busy port and then onto Delft. Visit the Delft Pottery works, where porcelain is still handmade and painted. Spend the rest of the afternoon strolling around this beautiful ancient Dutch city.

A morning cruise through the canals past Leiden, across the Brasemmer Lakes to Oude Wetering. Spend the afternoon at the famous Keukenhof Gardens with the largest display of flowers in the world. Here you will see hundreds of varieties of tulips, hyacinths and other beautiful bulbs.
