Overview

This river cruise showcases Switzerland's best bits combined with the picture-perfect Rhine and Moselle. We're talking chic cities, timber-framed towns, truly beautiful landscapes and the iconic Bernese Oberland.

Embark on a classic journey through the Rhine valley, unravelling its most fascinating towns and cities – not to mention incredible scenery – along the way.   

Where two of Europe’s mightiest rivers, the Rhine and Moselle, converge, discover Koblenz where the past seeps from every ancient stone in its tangled streets. As we glide through the Rhine Gorge, brace yourself for Mother Nature at her most awesome – make sure you’ve got a front row lounger on the sun deck for the full effect. 

Our adventure will uncover Speyer’s medieval charm, picture-perfect Rüdesheim and unlock Alsatian secrets in Strasbourg's old town. Just when you think the scenery couldn't get any better, enter the Black Forest, with its rolling forests, white-water rivers and waterfalls, whilst Titisee, nestled by a glistening lake, sets the perfect fairytale scene.  

Chic Lucerne welcomes us with Swiss sophistication before a thrilling ascent by mountain railway reveals alpine scenery like you’ve never seen it before. And we’re not joking.  

History buffs will revel in Cologne and Trier’s fascinating past whilst Boppard, the Rhine’s undisputed medieval crown jewel will blow your socks off whatever your penchant.  Get acquainted with Cochem’s cobbled canal paths, and Traben-Trarbach as we meander along the Moselle’s picturesque course.  

This is a cruise crammed with new discoveries but fear not, you’ll still have plenty of time to unwind in five-star style on board and enjoy the ship’s luxurious facilities – along with the gastronomic delights of course!
