Yes, we were on the Vantage River Odyssey for Holland/Belgium and Keukenhof in April, 2011. It was wonderful. My spouse, the reluctant traveler, even loved it. The boat does this itinerary routinely so the travels ran like clockwork. The cabin had adequate storage space, the beds were comfortable (with individual duvets), the menus were superb and the passenger care was attentive, from the cabin steward to the front desk to the program managers.

The cruise had been mentioned at several Vantage Memoralbe Journey meetings as one of the best and these recommendations were certainly correct. The itinerary is jam packed. I suppose if you skipped the optional excursions you'd have a little more time to yourself. Even the on-board entertainment was so enjoyable passengers were talking about it all the next morning.

For Keukenhof, I'd suggest choosing dates between the middle of April and the beginning of May. We just happened to hit it just right, or so we thought.

We're regular world travelers so I am pleaseantly surprised that we were this impressed.

Thanks again.

I will be on this cruise departing Amsterdam April 19th. Our flight gets in early that morning so am concerned about when we can board the ship. Do you remember? Also, how close is the ship docked to the city center?

Any suggestions will be most appreciated!
