Docking Location: De Ruyterkade Oost No. 3
Though we have almost come to the end of our cruise, this is the most colourful page of the whole blog. I feel so cheerful and happy just by looking through all these wonderful and colourful pictures.
In Amsterdam, we had to triple park, so Crystal Bach was the one in the middle, with Belljour closest to the dock and AmaSerena arriving after breakfast on the outside.
At 9:30 am, we started our tour to Keukenhof Gardens which was a 1-hour drive from Amsterdam. We were all super excited to do the highlights of our cruise. Keukenhof was only open for 8 weeks throughout the entire year, from March 21 to May 19 in 2019.
We had only 2 hours to spend in the garden, so we had to fast track everything in order to visit all the different pavilions. My husband took a map and plotted a route so we could cover most of the gardens. We were only able to visit Oranje Nassau, Willem-Alexander, The Mill, Beatrice and Juliana/Tulpomania. We didn’t even have time to line up to order tulip bulbs. Oh well…next time!
As soon as we walked in from the main entrance, we were greeted by a sea of tulips.
Beautiful floral displays inside the Oranje Nassau
Then we walked to Willem-Alexander where we spent the longest time.
We didn’t have time to walk to the front of the windmill. Just the back will do for this time.
Garden staff dressed up in flower costumes of all kinds.
Wow! Wow! Wow! Exceedingly beautiful Cherry Blossoms!
Inside the Beatrix pavilion:
Not just tulips, there were also beds of hyacinths.
There were also some exquisite flowers:
On the way back, we passed by many tulip fields.
Praise the Lord for a gorgeous morning in Keukenhof Gardens!
