Rhine & Moselle Splendours Cruise Review

“I have to say that this has been the best cruise I have ever been on. There’s nothing about this cruise I would change, everything was absolutely perfect. For starters the food on-board and off-board the ship was delicious and the staff were wonderfully helpful whenever I needed help with something. The itineraries were packed with loads of fun excursions. I was particularly fond of the walking tours through historical sites. 10/10, amazing experience.”

Matthew Stoker, Salisbury, Wiltshire
