Wow, the new season has started ! Easter weekend was our first, of many, Theme Cruises. It is still a little bit cold on board. April is not really high season, of course! We have some lovely blankets to cover your legs, to make it more convenient for you. By accident the blankets suits with my new Mondriaan tables on board. Blue pillows, red blankets and my pale face 🙂
2017 we celebrate 100 years ” The Style “, an art movement with architecture, design furniture and modern art. You probably notice all the shopping windows in the colours red-yellow-blue & white. Same as the famous ” Victory Boogie Woogie” by Piet Mondriaan. With no less than 300 works of art, Gemeentemuseum Den Haag has the world’s largest Mondrian collection. On top of that, the museum has one of the largest De Stijl-collections in the world. The exhibition Mondrian & De Stijl will give you a glimpse of their world and absolute worth a visit.
From tables with a theme we go to boat tours with a theme. This season we have some lovely theme cruises. Starting with celebrations on King’s Night, a few days later a more serious boat tour. The Jewish History boat tour is part of the Liberation days in The Hague. A unique chance to visit the synagogue and we’re getting a guided tour from the Rabbi herself. Friday May 5th is liberation day with a lot of festivals and music in town. We celebrate our freedom on the boat. Where else ? and you’re free to join us on the liberation boat tour.
In June we also have a new theme cruise ! for the first time were visiting a beautiful working wood saw mill in Leidschendam. A long boat ride, but nice countryside and we pass the working locks. Definitely an experience to see how all the boats pass through….
Anyway to many theme cruises will coming up this season. I made an agenda on the homepage. Check it ones in a while, and save the dates for the cruises you like to join.
