Product Image
One of Europe’s most legendary rivers awaits you on this exciting Rhine River cruise, which takes you across Germany-and touches in Holland, France, and Switzerland! Begin your Romantic Rhine River cruise vacation your way with an overnight stay in Amsterdam! Join us for an off-the-beaten-path guided walking tour through its cobblestone streets before embarking on your Suite Ship®. Explore this 700-year-old city on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten lined with homes dating back to the city’s "Golden Age." Cologne, Germany-a 2,000-year-old city known for its Gothic-style architecture-will be an exciting stop with its famous twin-spired cathedral and Old Town with many shops, cafés, and taverns.

Sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge-the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River where ancient castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water. In the charming wine town of Rüdesheim, visit the unique Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum. Continue your Rhine River cruise to Mainz for a guided walk and visit to the captivating Gutenberg Museum, or take an excursion to Heidelberg to visit the ruins of its red-walled castle. In Strasbourg, France, marvel at the red-sandstone Gothic-style cathedral with ancient murals and fascinating astronomical clock. Also, stroll through the lovely La Petite France district with its quaint shops, delightful bistros, and peaceful waterfront promenade. Visit Breisach, Germany, the gateway to Germany’s Black Forest-an area of unrivaled natural beauty-best known for Black Forest ham, cherry cake, and the cuckoo clock.

Disembark your river cruise ship in Basel, Switzerland, and begin your Monograms vacation package with a special excursion up Mount Pilatus for spectacular Alpine panoramas and a guided walking tour to explore lovely Lucerne. Travel by high-speed train to Como, where an included guided walking tour features the charming historic district, the Gothic-style Town Hall, and the imposing Duomo. Enjoy a relaxing boat ride on Lake Como to renowned Bellagio with its centuries-old buildings, cobblestone lanes, and charming shops. Travel to fashionable Milan for a 2-night stay. Your Monograms Local Host® is on hand to help you make this fabulous vacation just perfect for you!
