Rhine In Flames & The Magical Rhine Valley
8 Days Full Board River Cruise
Experience the mighty River Rhine, one of the world’s most awe-inspiring rivers, as it carves its way through spectacular mountain gorges with vineyards clinging impossibly to the slopes. Hilltop castles look down from above, and pretty, flowerdecked riverside towns are a delight to explore. And there’s no finer place to take all this in than onboard the Prinses Christina – effortlessly gliding over the water as the scenery changes with every bend in the river. And a special highlight is an evening cruise amid the spectacular flotilla of vessels taking part in the famous Rhine in Flames celebration. It’s an experience not to be missed!
