New Year on the Rhine Cruise Review

“I’ve only got a glowing report for this cruise, it was absolutely terrific. The ship was comfy and I was never bored, the food was scrumptious and I got to meet so many interesting people. The excursions were also brilliant, I had an especially good time on the Cycle Ride in Rüdesheim. All the activities were really fun and honestly knocked my socks off.”
