Round Trip from Amsterdam

We're sorry, this tour is sold out.  Join Sue on our IQSCM Mediterranean Cruise in June, 2019.


Join Sue Spargo on our 10 day Quilter's Tulips & Windmill river cruise through the canals of the Netherlands and Belgium.  This fabulous cruise promises to be an inspirational journey you will not soon forget as together with Sue, we will discover the beauty of tulip season in this part of the world. 

Our journey will take us on a walk through the colorful acres of tulips at Keukenof Gardens, where we will get a sense of the Netherlands' extraordinary connection to the tulip blooms.  We will also visit the UNESCO heritage site of the Kinderdijk to better understand  how these historic windmills have been used to protect the Low Country from ever-rising water levels for centuries.

Enjoy the picture-perfect villages of Ghent, Hoorn and Rotterdam as well as uncover the rich treasures at Amsterdam's world-class museums.  Along our way, we will stitch and savor Dutch delights and Belgian treats as we sail through these two amazing countries surrounded by water.

Sue is preparing an exclusive project just for those who join her on this adventure.  Please note, there are no formal classrooms or formal teaching time planned onboard our ship, however Sue will be available to assist you with your project during some of our scenic cruising hours.  Our Quilters Journey with Sue will provide ample opportunity to meet and enjoy the company of those who share your passion for her artistry while enjoying the beauty, history and culture in this part of the world.

The Dutch Golden Age’s legacy lives on in gilded manses that line Amsterdam’s canals and in the lush paintings that adorn the Rijksmuseum.


Hoorn, The Netherlands

Founded in 1300, Hoorn was named for its horn-shaped harbor along the Ijsselmeer, the artificial lake created by massive dams.
