Every day, guests will experience a new masterpiece and learn a new technique. We’ll supply the sketch pads, pencils, inspiration and encouragement.

When you draw, you see things you never noticed before. You see proportions, details, colors, lines. Much like what happens when you travel aboard a cruise ship; it's all about the journey.

Rijksmuseum at Sea will feature a bright studio space featuring life-sized reproductions of artworks from the Rijksmuseum, drawing tables, sketch books, pencils, friendly instructors and everything guests need to create their own masterpieces.
