One of the many joys of river cruising is sharing the company of like-minded travellers while the scenery eases gently by, knowing that everything is organised for you from start to finish. And on this easy cruising itinerary you’ll be treated to a fabulous journey along the spectacular River Rhine, starting in the vibrant city of Amsterdam, passing through the fabled Rhine Valley, and arriving on the French border in the enchanting city of Strasbourg. With delightful cruising and memorable visits along the way, there is no better way to experience the scenic splendours of the heart of Northern Europe.
