Cruise Itinerary

Saturday: From local joining points we cross the Channel, then into Germany to reach Cologne in time for a late dinner.

Sunday: Cruising upstream on the River Rhine we pass the university city of Bonn and enter the Rhine Gorge, where the river winds its way past the Seven Mountains to reach the old Roman town of Andernach by early afternoon.

Monday: Cruising upstream on the quieter River Moselle, past famous vineyards and picturesque wine villages, to arrive at the favourite tourist centre of Cochem, with its colourful riverside promenade and cobbled alleyways and squares. This afternoon enjoy free time to explore at leisure.

Tuesday: We cruise back to Koblenz and onto the wine town of Boppard – known as the ‘Pearl of the Rhine’, where the remainder of the day is free to explore.

Wednesday: Today we cruise through the most spectacular part of the Rhine Gorge, learning about the legendary Loreley Rock, and passing a succession of ruined hilltop castles. Today’s destination is Rüdesheim, perhaps the best known of the Rhine Valley resorts, where the Drosselgasse alleyway is full of friendly wine taverns.

Thursday: From Rüdesheim our coach takes us to the top of the Loreley Rock for views of the river below before visiting the nearby riverside village of St Goarhausen. We rejoin the ship in Koblenz, mooring adjacent to the old town, rebuilt since World War II.

Friday: Today we return downstream from Koblenz, with a stop at the riverside resort of Königswinter, before continuing to Cologne.

Saturday: We disembark for the return coach journey to Calais and the Channel crossing, then on to our original joining points.
