A sell-out Floral Delights of Holland river cruise has prompted Saga to add another sailing to meet demand from guests wanting to to visit the gardens of Appeltern, Utrecht and Keukenhof in spring 2018.

River cruise ship Amadeus Royal makes a round-trip from Amsterdam and the first port of call is Tiel, where an included half-day excursion to Appeltern Gardens is offered to provide inspiration for garden lovers through an innovative collection of individual garden designs.

Utrecht Botanical Gardens are next on the itinerary and feature one of Europe’s finest rock gardens as well as tropical greenhouses.

Amadeus Royal sails on to the city of Haarlem for the annual Flower Parade where a procession of floats carry displays of colourful blooms, before guests are taken to see the floral displays at Keukenhof Gardens, where seven million bulbs are planted to create the world-famous beds of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths, alongside pavilions of exotic and scented blooms.

On return to Amsterdam guests can also take an optional excursion to Amsterdam’s Botanical Gardens.

The seven-night itinerary leads in at £1,249 departing on April 18, 2018.
