You have plenty of free time today to explore this charming little city brimming with history and fascinating architecture. If you prefer, join in with an optional excursion to visit the Medemblik Bakery, a quaint two-story museum where you'll be able to see how traditional Dutch specialities are made, including the almond paste cookie 'gevulde koek'. Return to the ship for a relaxing dinner on board and sail overnight to Den Helder.

Return to the ship for lunch before you continue on to the city of Harlingen to discover its many sights and attractions. There are over 600 monuments which outline this harbour city, and part of the original defences can still be seen in the original canals and old warehouses. Relax on board this evening as you sail overnight towards Lelystad.

Glide into the lively little port of Lelystad this morning to enjoy an included excursion to Keukenhof Gardens.
