Cruise Day 2: Le Havre (Paris), France  (Saturday: September 17, 2022 / 7:00am - 7:00pm) 
Mont St MichelLe Havre is a major port in northern France's Normandy region, where the Seine River meets the English Channel. It's joined to the city across the estuary, Honfleur, by the Pont de Normandie cable-stayed bridge. Following WWII, Le Havre's heavily damaged city center was famously redesigned by Belgian architect Auguste Perret. Today it features many landmark examples of reinforced-concrete architecture.
Included Shore Excursion: Mont St Michel Visit
 - Enjoy the French countryside as we travel from the port of Le Harve to Mont St Michel. So worth the 2 1/2 hour drive as Mont-Saint-Michel is one of Europe’s most unforgettable sights and will take your breath away.. Built between the 11th and 16th centuries, it is set in the mesmerizing bay where Normandy and Brittany merge. Rising hundreds of feet above a rocky islet amidst vast sandbanks exposed to powerful tides stands a Gothic Benedictine abbey surrounded by a medieval village.
We will have a few hours to explore the village and Mont St Michel's surrounding views. There are many things to see including museums, churches and the spectacular Abbey (10 Euro). The climb up to the Mont Saint-Michel is considerable: the pathway leading to the top is steep, narrow and cobblestoned and there is a lot of stairs, especially when going to the Abbey. You can explore as much or as little as you would like.

 

Cruise Day 3: Brussels / Bruges (Zeebrugge), Belgium  (Sunday: September 18, 2022  / 8:00am - 5:00pm)
BrugesBruges is an ancient city located in the northern part of Belgium, about 62 miles from Brussels. The city was once a main port of Belgium welcomed artists and nobles from Europe during the 15th century and is distinguished by canals, cobbled streets and medieval buildings. Its port, Zeebrugge, is an important center for fishing and European trade. In the city center’s Burg square, the 14th-century Stadhuis (City Hall) has an ornate carved ceiling.

Having gracefully aged from its days as a medieval trading center, Bruges seems almost too good to be true, made of stunning gothic and Renaissance buildings and presenting a charming atmosphere today.

We will tour the striking canal side views, cross legendary bridges and have some breaks for photos at the Market Square, Belfry Tower, Quay of the Rosary, Chapel of the Holy Blood and Saint John’s Hospital, an eight hundred-year-old venue once caring for pilgrims and travelers.

At one time, Zaanse Schans had more than 500 windmills along its canals. Sadly, most of them are long gone. We will walk tour past some of the historic green-timbered houses and canals to a working windmill.
Cheese-making is also an old Dutch guild and a visit to a local dairy farm offers us an opportunity to view a cheese-making demonstration and experience the taste of fresh cheese.
Then we will drive back to the beautiful capital of the Netherlands for an overview tour of Amsterdam. See the architecture of city mansions, countless canals and amazing views from the famous museum district to the historic city center. We will walk by St. Nicholas Basilica and around Amsterdam's main square, the Dam.

Cruise Day 9: Warnemunde, Germany (Saturday: September 24, 2022 / 6:30am - 9:30pm)
What does Berlin have that other world cities don't? Well, first of all, there's the locals, whose rough yet friendly charm is all part of the Berlin experience. It's been more than two decades since the walls came down and Berlin became unified in many ways, including the pursuit of joy. Add to that an incredible array of sights that reflect not only the city's new-found swagger but also its great history. Germany's capital city is a city that balances cosmopolitan chic with a liberal undercurrent of creativity and cool. Famous landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag fascinate and the elegant Bavarian Quarter amazes.
