Preview 2026 sailing schedule

Here's a sneak peek at what we have in store: 

Blue Danube 3-Country Tour 
The long-awaited expansion on the Danube is finally here! Introducing the 'Blue Danube 3-Country Tour of Austria, Slovakia & Hungary' from Vienna to Budapest and back. The detailed itinerary and descriptions will be developed this winter, but you can already book this journey for your group. We have four weeks planned, and two are already sold out. 

Merlijn’s Tulip Expedition 
Our classic 'Holland Tulip Tour' is getting a remake! We are preserving all the best parts while adding some exciting new elements. The ideas have been brewing in our notebooks for years, and from 2026, they will be available for everyone. Introducing 'Merlijn’s Tulip Expedition', a treasure hunt to all the tulip fields of the Netherlands. We have five weeks scheduled, with three weeks already reserved for groups. One week will always be available for individual bookings starting in February 2025, when we will bring these journeys online. 

Get ready to explore these new and revitalized journeys with Merlijn in 2026! Group bookings are now open upon request for those who wish to reserve the entire ship. You can fill out the contact form or email to info@merlijn.nu. Individual bookings will be available starting February 2025.

Dearest friends of Merlijn,

We knew we were "in goede handen" the moment we walked on board...... Zelfs het weer heb je goed verzorgd :)

You took care of us so well on so many levels in so many ways!
We love you!
