What does a holiday accommodation on a ship look like?
In principle, a holiday on a ship works the same as in a holiday home, except that you sleep on the water in a very special accommodation.
You can go in all directions from the ship. You can go out during the day and then return to your ship to cook and enjoy the evening.
The ships generally have a permanent berth in the harbor of a city or a nice quiet spot outside. Most ships are suitable for a group of around 12 people, but there are also a number for small groups and groups of up to 32 people.
It is also possible to ship sail to another location if you are going on vacation for a longer period. This way you can call at multiple ports during your stay on board. For example, take a round of Friesland during your holiday! This option is not available for all ships, ask us about the possibilities without obligation.
