Jewels of the Rhine Cruise Review

“Our cruise was an absolute delight! We loved exploring the Old Town of Cologne with the guided tour and we had a blast in Koblenz with the orientation walk, and we learned so much about the gorgeous architecture of the city. In Heidelberg we enjoyed a castle tour and caught a concert at Bruchsal Palace which was as wonderful as we were expecting it would be and then some! Strasbourg was a mediaeval wonder and we also got to bike around in Freiburg. The ship’s amenities were very well loved and we really enjoyed talking to the other passengers in the Horizon Bar.”
