Overview

This cruise has the perfect mix of river views, mountain peaks, urban splendour and a dash of medieval charm. There’s no better way to savour the flavours (and the wine) of the Rhine Valley, than aboard our five-star ship. 

We’re rolling out the red carpet for these cruising stars: Heidelberg and Lucerne bring the class, Boppard and Rüdesheim add a quirky twist, and Strasbourg and Cologne throw in a bit of time-travel magic. As ever the Rhine Gorge steals the show.   

You’ll be wowed by the scenery of the Swiss alps on a mountain rail journey amidst the snow-capped peaks, and in for a treat as we cruise the epic Rhine Gorge where Mother Nature puts on her most dramatic show. And the views don’t stop there. The sleepy town of Titisee snoozes quietly on the peaceful shores of its shimmering lake whilst the pine-forested landscapes of the Black Forest cast their magic spell during a scenic drive.   

From Cologne to Koblenz, Strasbourg to Speyer, immerse yourself in cities steeped in wonder, where history really happened; you’ll feel it echoing around every corner as you wander with our local experts, marvelling in awe at ancient cathedrals and Romanesque churches, unchanged by the passing centuries. There’s charm galore in the old towns of Boppard and Rüdesheim, surrounded by sun-ripened vineyards whilst in Colmar’s timber-clad idyll, it’s hard to believe real life goes on here! Join us on a river adventure that showcases the very best of this historic and scenic region.
