We cast off this morning and cruise upriver through the spectacular Rhine Gorge, stopping at the pretty town of Rüdesheim.

New Year’s Eve starts with us cruising back down the Rhine Gorge to Koblenz. You are free to explore the quaint lanes and atmospheric squares which are filled with ancient buildings.

Enjoy a leisurely morning onboard our ship as we cruise to our final destination, Cologne. This beautiful city is the largest on the Rhine and is dominated by its cathedral, a gothic masterpiece which hovers above the rooftops. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a New Year’s Day stroll, so join our Cruise Manager for an optional walking tour taking in the historic centre and the riverbanks with the iconic Hohenzollern Bridge.
