Itinerary

Day 1 Overnight Flight

Discover a dramatic waterway where winding valleys give way to riverside cities and Alpine hamlets. Venture along the Rhine and Moselle and spend time in beloved European cities, getting a taste of the local culture in each stop along the way.

Day 2 Zurich, Switzerland - Tour Begins

Your tour opens in Zurich, Switzerland. This evening, join your fellow travelers for a welcome dinner.

Day 3 Zurich - Lucerne - Basel - Board Cruise Ship

Experience Lucerne, the “Swiss Paradise on the Lake.” On a leisurely paced Alstadt (Old Town) walking tour, see the hidden treasures of this 800-year-old city, including the covered Chapel Bridge and the Lion Monument. Head to Basel and board your ship. Your home for the next seven nights, the ship offers an array of amenities including outside staterooms, unlimited wine with every dinner, and daily onboard musical performances. This evening, enjoy a cocktail reception followed by a welcome aboard dinner.

Day 4 Strasbourg, France

Cross the French border and experience Strasbourg, a fairytale town that blends centuries of international influences to create its own unique culture. On a guided tour of the old quarter, Petite France, take in the iconic timber-framed houses, the Cathedral of Notre Dame, and Place de la République. Make the most of some free time to explore this perfectly preserved town before returning to your ship.

Day 5 Speyer, Germany - Mannheim

Sail to Speyer, one of Germany’s oldest cities, and step back in time on a walking tour to explore the Old Gate and the Jewish baths. Later, the river takes you to Mannheim where you will have free time to explore this German city and its parks on your own. Perhaps you will join an optional excursion to Heidelberg, an ancient city of Renaissance buildings and castle ramparts.

Day 6 Rüdesheim - Koblenz

Your first stop of the day is Rüdesheim, which you’ll explore with an expert guide. Visit the city’s famous Siegfried’s Mechanisches Musikkabinett (Mechanical Music Museum) and hear the traditional music of barrel organs and medieval instruments. Your next stop is Koblenz; get to know this 2,000-year-old city on a tour before docking for the evening. See such sights as the town’s old quarter, badly damaged during World War II and then rebuilt, as well as the Schaengel Fountain at the town hall.

Day 7 Moselle River - Cochem

Continue along the Moselle River to Cochem, a storybook town overlooking the water. Embark on a guided tour through the town and into Reichsburg Castle, a fortress perched high above the surrounding area. End your tour in one of Cochem’s wine cellars, introducing you to the culture with a local winemaker and a tasting of regional Mosel wines.

Day 8 Cologne

As the sun rises, cross into the Rhine River and pass through the picturesque German landscape dotted with medieval towns. Your journey brings you to Cologne, where you will join a guide for a walking tour of the city’s Gothic Old Town. Wander along cobblestone streets and admire the Cologne Cathedral, the Roman Dionysus mosaic, and the Romanesque church of St. Martin. End your day at the Captain’s Gala Dinner – a lively celebration of food, music and entertainment.

Day 9 Amsterdam, Netherlands

Begin your day in Amsterdam, a city of narrow canals and stone bridges. Embark on a tour with a local expert before seeing the city from a different perspective, voyaging along the city’s centuries-old canal system. Sail by charming cafés and famous 16th-century row houses stacked side-by-side.

Day 10 Amsterdam - Disembark Ship - Tour Ends

After breakfast, wish the river valleys goodbye as you disembark and your tour comes to a close.

Had a river cruise booked for May 2020 on the Danube but unfortunately because of Covid 19 it was cancelled. I had no issues in getting a full refund for my vacation. I will definitely rebook with Collette when things return to normal...

Recently, our dream trip to Italy was canceled due to covid-19. Collette's superior customer service responded to my inquiry by message and phone call literally within minutes. Their team was sympathetic and informative with regards to our refund details. Thank you Collette. We realize this is also a difficult time for your company as well. We hope to rebook our trip to Italy with you again one day!

I do recommend Collette, had two great dream trips to AUSTRALIA/NEW ZEALAND and AFRICA. Was planning to go to MOROCCO this Spring but trip was cancelled. The way they handled the cancellation of the trip did not make me feel like a valued customer. I wanted to keep the reservation and move it to next year. I asked that I receive back the $7000 plus final payment I just made and they could keep the initial payment to hold the trip. Collette basically said I could move the reservation till next year and get no money back or just cancel the trip. They wanted to keep my total payment in order for them to move the trip. They would rather me cancel my trip, with no chance of trying to keep my business, go through the rebooking process, hoping I rebook, then just move it and return all of my final payment. This was a big disappointment from a company I have had a great travel experience with and have recommended to my friends. I want to take many more trips that Collette offers but I am not sure now.

During this coronavirus we had a trip to Italy my mom is 89 and we unfortunately didn’t take out the insurance and they have said they can only give us only 30% on the land and zero on air fare back and I just think it’s poor business in a situation that is so unprecedented
