The most popular travel destinations from here are Paris, Rome, Barcelona, ​​Madrid and Buenos Aires.

When I arrived in Amsterdam on the first Norwegian Prima cruise in September, I hosted two events at the invitation of the company. In both, the guides spoke English, but among the languages ​​available in the audio guide was a Portuguese variant. In the capital of the Netherlands, I was in the Heineken Experience store and took a boat tour along the canal; in the nearby towns I got acquainted with the Zaanse Schans and Volendam windmills.
