Overview Ship Info Deck Plans Supplier
Start this magnificent river cruise vacation in Holland's popular, modern capital of Amsterdam. See the treasures of this 700-year-old city from a unique perspective-on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten.

Begin your scenic cruise along the Rhine River and arrive in Cologne, Germany-a 2,000-year-old city known for its gothic architecture. On a guided city walk, see the famous twin-spired cathedral and explore the cobblestone streets of the Old City. You'll sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge-the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River where ancient castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water. In the charming wine town of Rüdesheim, enjoy a stroll through its famous cobblestone Drosselgasse lined with shops, restaurants, and lively taverns. Along the Moselle River, you'll stop at the picturesque town of Cochem where the Riesling grape is cultivated. Visit Reichsburg Castle, nestled among vineyards and offering breathtaking views of the town and river valley below. The wine village of Bernkastel offers quaint narrow streets and half-timbered houses from the Middle Ages. Relax, take in the scenery, and enjoy a wine-tasting of the area's best offerings. Before your fabulous European river cruise concludes, visit Luxembourg City with a local expert. This historical city offers unique and dramatic views as it is set on two levels-high above on straddling hills and dropping into two river valleys.
