Moselle River

Join our wonderful cruise along the meandering Moselle, from picturesque wine villages to vineyard-clad hillsides overlooked by romantic castles.

    Please note for navigational and passenger safety, the cruise company and the captain reserve the right to modify the cruise itinerary if necessary. Sailing times are dependant on how busy the numerous locks are. At some ports of call, a degree of walking will be involved to join our coach. Due to limited docking facilities, it may be necessary to dock alongside another ship to access the shore.

    Local departure by coach, then to Koblenz to join our cruise ship, the MS Rhine Princess for a four-night cruise.

    • Included meals: Light Supper

    We depart from Koblenz and cruise along the winding Moselle to the pretty wine town of Zell, famous for its Schwarze Katz Vineyard. Throughout the village, you'll see the black cat icon appearing on everything from shop signs to tourist trinkets.

    Our cruise today takes us to Cochem, the pearl of the Moselle. The town nestles beneath the Reichsburg fairytale castle. Explore the maze of narrow streets and the river promenade lined with many wine taverns. Why not join us as we visit the pretty, medieval village of Beilstein by coach, with its half-timbered buildings. We continue our cruise to Alken, where we moor overnight.

    • Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

    We rejoin the Rhine and cruise past Konigswinter and Bonn to reach Cologne, the capital of the Rhineland where you can enjoy free time, shopping or relaxing in one of the many traditional bars, maybe sampling the Kölsch beer.
