Rhine River Cruises

Rhine River Cruises 2022/2023

Embark on a relaxing Rhine cruise along board the MS Rhine Princess or MS Serenade 1. From Rüdesheim to Koblenz and Cologne, savour the spectacular surroundings, explore many famous sights and recharge your batteries.

Flowing for almost 800 miles from its mountain source all the way to the North Sea, cruise the Rhine and discover spectacular sights including the stunning Rhine Gorge.

We think one of Europe's most enchanting waterways is the River Rhine. Passing through six countries, the Rhine flows from the Swiss Alps to Rotterdam. Wander charming squares and visit sweeping vineyards. Take cable car to the emposing Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. Stand on top of the world at Rigi Kulm and gasp at the sparkling views below. Sip fabulous Rieslings and explore picture-perfect towns Basel and Strasbourg, where fairytale timber-framed houses line the canal. The Rhine will excite and astound in equal measure.
