The Moselle, Luxembourg & the Majestic Rhine Cruise Review

“This was a departure for us, in more ways than one, as we’ve never sailed more than one river or for this length of time. Ten nights was the ideal voyage, and this cruise is the perfect mix of sailing time and great scenery with truly fascinating port stops. The ship’s cuisine is five-star, and the wine choice is amazing, as you might expect in this part of the world. Expect spacious and luxurious cabins, the ultimate sanctuary after a hard day’s holidaymaking.”

The Moselle, Luxembourg & the Majestic Rhine FAQs

Find answers to some of the most common questions about river cruising here.

How can I pay for my booking?

All payments must be made in pounds sterling, and you can pay by cheque, debit or credit card, or bank transfer. If you’re paying from a non-British account, there may be a handling charge of £10. You don’t have to use the same card or payment method for the payment balance as you did for the deposit.

Do I need a passport for this cruise?

You will require a valid passport for your holiday. We always recommend that you have at least six months left on your passport, working on a basis of ten years from the issue date of the passport not the expiry date. If you have any concerns about your passport, please discuss these with our friendly reservations team, who can signpost you to the right organisations.

I have reduced mobility. Can I still travel on this cruise?

Our booking team can discuss this cruise with you in detail to ensure it suits your needs. It may be that some shore excursions cannot accommodate you; for example, most of the coaches we use for road travel do not have wheelchair access. Your friendly booking agent can work through with you the best cabin choice, access around the ship, and which shore excursions are accessible to you because of steps, terrain, or different modes of transport.
