FLY: Most air­lines of­fer an op­tion to Am­s­ter­dam out of New Zealand. Emi­rates, for ex­am­ple, flies Auck­land to Dubai and onto Am­s­ter­dam. emi­rates.com/nz ON­BOARD: Sally went on a seven-night Rhine cruise which de­parts from Am­s­ter­dam and takes in the cities of Cologne, Koblenz, Hei­del­berg, Stras­bourg and a visit to the Black For­est. Guided sight­see­ing trips are avail­able but it is also a good idea to re­search be­fore­hand and em­bark on your own. Bud­get about $ 4000-plus per per­son for the week-long cruise. STAY: When stop­ping over in Am­s­ter­dam, stay in the his­toric city. Dou­bletree By Hil­ton Cen­traal Sta­tion is 20 min­utes from the air­port by train, and within easy reach of the city’s fa­mous shop­ping streets, restau­rants and mu­se­ums. Hit the rooftop ter­race for the panorama; re­cep­tion for the in-house bike rental ser­vice. dou­ble­tree3.hil­ton.com
