Rhine in Flames & the magical Rhine Valley

Prinses Christina

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, flower-decked riverside towns are a delight to explore. And there’s no finer place to take all this in than onboard the Princes 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!

Cruise Highlights:



DAY 1: We head for the Channel and on to Koblenz in time for a late supper on board.

DAY 2: Today we cruise through the spectacular Rhine Gorge, passing embattled castles and pretty shoreside villages, to reach the popular tourist centre of Rudesheim. Here you can enjoy the town at leisure or perhaps taste some of the local wine in the famous Drosselgasse.

DAY 3: A morning cruise takes us to Boppard – the ‘Pearl of the Rhine’. The remainder of the day is free to explore this charming riverside town.

DAY 4: This morning a short cruise to Koblenz at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers with the day free to explore. This evening we depart Koblenz to join the Rhine in Flames procession of vessels cruising downstream as fireworks illuminate the river at five spots between Linz and the finale in Bonn.

DAY 5: We cruise from Bonn to reach the old Roman town of Andernach. From here we travel by coach for a scenic tour of the Eifel Mountains, where the gently rolling hills and forests blend with the traditional picture-postcard villages.

DAY 6: Today we cruise onto the River Moselle to Winningen. From here we enjoy a coach excursion through picturesque wine villages to the favourite tourist centre of Cochem with its colourful riverside promenade and cobbled alleyways and squares.

DAY 7: We return to the Rhine and cruise to Cologne with free time this afternoon to discover this majestic city, the focal point being the impressive Cathedral.

DAY 8: Disembarking after breakfast we return to Calais and homeward bound.
