See the incredible 'Rhine In Flames' festival, as explosions of fireworks light up the sky. Our cruise ship will be part of the flotilla - the best way to view the spectacle.
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.
We continue our cruise, passing the 2000-year old town of Koblenz, at the point where the Rhine meets the Moselle. We continue to Boppard, where you can enjoy a stroll around the compact town or along the pretty Rhine Promenade. This afternoon, we offer an excursion by coach to the old town of Cochem, one of the most beautiful wine-growing locations in Germany, where the impressive Reichsburg Castle stands high above the river. We moor overnight in Boppard.
A day of wonderful scenery today as we cruise along the most dramatic stretch of the mighty Rhine. Our cruise takes us through the Rhine Gorge, passing hill-top castles, picturesque towns and vine-clad slopes. We also pass the legendary Loreley Rock near the picturesque town of St. Goarshausen before reaching Rüdesheim. Explore this bustling town known for its wine-making, especially Riesling wines. At the heart of the old town, Rüdesheim boasts the Drosselgasse, a charming street bursting with shops, wine bars and garden taverns.
We cruise downstream towards Koblenz, where we arrive around lunchtime. At around 5.00pm we sail in convoy, as part of the flotilla towards Bonn and witness the amazing fireworks display. The ever-changing kaleidoscope of colour erupts over the river, illuminating the countryside, before we continue to Cologne arriving in the early hours.

We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not
generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests
at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
