Brussels Pre-Cruise Option — 3 Days, 2 Nights
The capital of Belgium, this cosmopolitan city has become a crossroads of modern Europe—both the European Union and NATO have their headquarters here; residents speak variations of French, Flemish and German; and the grand boulevards and parks have a Parisian flavor while retaining Flemish character. Accommodations for two nights are in the deluxe, centrally located Hilton Brussels Grand Palace Hotel.
Amsterdam Post-Cruise Option — 3 Days, 2 Nights
The historic heart of Amsterdam, laced with tree-shaded canals and stately 16th- and 17th-century merchant houses, is designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, and is the perfect ending to your cruise.

Walk through Jordaan, one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in Amsterdam and a center for art, musicians, and antiques; and visit the historic Anne Frank House museum.
