Overview

Anyone who doesn’t believe in the power of romance has never travelled along the Rhine or its idyllic tributary, the Moselle. In fact, on this itinerary, there’s probably a fairytale moment waiting just beyond the next river bend. The castles that grace this region sometimes seem as if they were lifted straight from the silver screen – hardly surprising as it’s a region that’s long been favoured by Hollywood directors. From Lorelei, the Rhine river siren said to lure sailors to their demise, to the legendary Black Forest, which still resonates with imaginative children’s tales, there are stories...read more of romances galore to discover and delight in. You may even compose a few new ones of your own.

Scenic River Cruise Basel to Amsterdam 14 , QLD, Australia, Sep 2018
This was our third river cruise, and it is still the best way to travel. Unpack once, sit back and watch the world go by. However tours are available every day in a different city. Please yourself with what you do. All people are different and expect different things, we rarely used the butler as it is not our thing. We have been with another river cruise company (Avalon) and found their food and entertainment much better. Once again it's the only way to travel and relax.
