I'm beginning research into a possible future cruise on the Reflection in August 2020 - British Isles 12 night and I've bumped into a Google Maps curiosity for my inexperienced brain. I've never been to Europe let alone Amsterdam. I'm wondering how the ships leaving Amsterdam get out to the Sea and be still my kerthumping heart, is it a canal and a lock??? WOW. It looks like the two 'roads' across the lock slide back (Middensluisweg and Noordersluisweg). This alone is worth the price of admission. How cool is that!!! 😲
I'd love to hear stories of folks who have done this cruise or any cruise out of Amsterdam through the canals and the lock. 😀 At the risk of sounding goofy and/or niave, is it as amazing as I hope it could be? Is there a lot of daylight in August to see the sights as you cruise by?
I'm also trying to decide between Azamara Scotland Intensive and the Reflection British Isles (2 overnights, Dublin and Glasgow) which covers more of Europe and Ireland hitting Belgium and France. 😵
I would also love to hear stories from folks who have done Reflection British Isles and what you were able to do in Portland, Dover, Cherbourg France and Zeebrugge Belgium.
Thanks to all!
