Welcome to the Holland Society
The Holland Society Plans to Return to
The Netherlands Just in Time for
April 2 through 11, 2014
The Holland Society is planning a voyage to the Netherlands with Viking River Cruises, April 2 through April 11, 2014. The cost is approximately $3,000 to $3,800 per person, based on the location of accommodations on the ship. This is inclusive of almost all costs associated with the trip. The trip is entitled “Tulips and Windmills” starting in Amsterdam, cruising down to Antwerp, and returning to Amsterdam. The destinations include: Ijsselmeer, Hoom, Amhen, Kinderdijk, Antwerp, Ghent, Middleburg, Rotterdam, and finally Amsterdam. The trip is laid out in detail on www.vikingrivercruises.com. It may also be found in Viking’s pamphlet, 2013 and 2014 River Cruises, on page 34. There are numerous discounts and perquisites that come with larger group bookings. Also, the sooner we book and put down a modest deposit, the greater the chances of getting the specific levels of accommodations we may wish.
Since the trip was announced on April 4, 2013, it has met with considerable interest and demand. Therefore, if you are interested in participating, please let President Charles Zabriskie, Jr. know as soon as possible via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
