Itinerary

  • Day 1 UK to Strasbourg
  • Today you'll travel by Eurostar via Paris to Strasbourg, where on arrival, we'll transfer you to your ship. After time to settle into your cabin, meet your travelling companions and the crew over a welcome cocktail. Later, why not join an optional river cruise in Strasbourg.  
  • Day 2 Koblenz
  • ​We'll cruise towards Lauterbourg, Speyer and Mainz today, and then continue our journey to Koblenz along one of the most beautiful sections of the Rhine. Soak up the scenery as you sail past the towns of Kaub, Oberwesel and Saint-Goar, and be sure not to miss Stolzenfels Castle. This medieval-style fortress towering over the river is an impressive sight.
    We'll arrive in Koblenz early evening, so why not head ashore to explore. 
  • Day 3 Rüdesheim
  • Our journey today takes us to Rüdesheim, past castles, vineyards and the famous Lorelei Rock, a 433-foot-high slate cliff on the banks of the river.
    When we arrive in Rüdesheim, you can join us as we step aboard a fun train for an optional tour of the local vineyards, which includes a visit to a wine cellar for a tasting. Afterwards, we'll see the wonderful collection of self-playing instruments at the Museum of Mechanical Musical Instruments.
    Alternatively, you may have chosen to join a hiking tour through Rüdesheim, which takes you through the vineyards to the Abbey of St. Hildegard.
    This evening why not head ashore to explore further, with a stroll along the Drosslegasse highly recommended. This well-known alley in the heart of Rüdesheim's Old Town is where you'll find an array of cafés and bars where live bands often perform.
  • Day 4 Speyer
  • ​Early this morning we'll set sail for Speyer, passing the towns of Wiesbaden, Nierstein, Worms and Mannheim along the way. From Speyer we offer an optional excursion to Heidelberg, known for its charming Old Town and ruined castle which overlooks the city from a hilltop position.
    We'll re-join the ship and enjoy a gala dinner this evening as we sail back to Strasbourg through the night.
  • Day 5 Strasbourg to UK
  • After breakfast we'll disembark the ship and transfer to the station for our journey home.
