Superbreak are a rennouned company in the UK offering mainly hotels and theatre breaks, however this has all begun to change. They have recently expanded to offering worldwide hotels and tour packages and Amsterdam is one of their most popular breaks.
To gain an insight into what Superbreak packages have to offer a handful of travel agents were flown out for an unforgettable weekend to experience what our guests can book.
Once we arrived in Amsterdam we met with a local tour guide who was very knowledgable in the history of the city and took a group of us on a walking tour beginning at the port walking past the train station, past the famous Dam square, the shopping district and of course the red light district, which in daylight was a bit underwhelming, until dark came and the area came to life.
Lunch was served at Haesje Claes, a typical Dutch restaurant which was full at lunchtime. A traditional set menu was served including smoked mackeral, roast chicken and the most amazing apple and cinnamon cake for dessert.
After lunch a wander around the flower market to see the many flowers and tulips on offer before we ventured back to our hotel, the grand Moevenpick right at the port. A beautiful hotel in an excellent location only a 10 minute walk from the central train station and situated right at the cruise terminal, we had a fantastic view of Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas from our bedroom window and watched a typical sail away
Once the evening came we were taken on a canal river boat dinner cruise, where we sailed through the canals of Amsterdam whilst being wined and dined with a 4 course meal and unlimited wine. Again a set menu which we had pre ordered but were given a choice of either meat, fish or vegetarian. The hosts offered a fantastic service and we saw a lovely sun set whilst onboard before arriving back at the dock, where we treated ourselves to a couple of cheeky drinks before heading back to our hotel for a well deserved nights rest before our visit to Holland America’s new MS Koningsdam on Sunday morning.
