Once every 10 years in the Netherlands, we’re treated to Floriade, the world's ultimate festival of flowers.  In 2022, the Floriade World Horticultural Expo takes place in the Dutch town of Almere. The theme, Growing Green Cities, focusses on the Green City of the Future, along with food, energy and health. You can expect stunning collections of trees, plants, crops and flowers, in a seemingly unending spectrum of amazing colours and scents. Join us and be part of this once-in-a-decade celebration of the world’s most innovative horticulture.

Refreshers Bridge

Refreshers Bridge is aimed at social bridge players, those who wish to improve their bidding and play, or those who simply want a friendly holiday with a smaller size group. We do not award EBU master points with these holidays, so the more hardened duplicate bridge players do not attend, therefore leading to a more social and easy-going atmosphere.
Join us on this Floral Extravaganza Bridge River Cruise. Explore the Green City Arboretum at the once-in-a-decade Floriade flower festival, blooming with species of trees, shrubs, perennials, creepers, hydrophytes and flower bulbs, all of which contribute to a green, healthy and sustainable city. Step back in time and witness the superbly preserved windmills of UNESCO World Heritage Kinderdijk and wander the cobbled streets and discover the history of Dordrecht, Holland’s oldest city. Be immersed in the tropical Plan Palace of the Botanic Garden of Belgium and soak up the culture of Antwerp.
During the evenings, after a superb dinner on board, we play a relaxed bridge session. There will also be some morning or afternoon sessions to compliment the cruise itinerary.
We will be sailing onboard the recently refurbished MS Arena, one of the ships belonging to our own Arena Travel River Cruise Collection. Click here more information.
