Rhine Getaway Cruise Review

“I really enjoyed myself on this cruise. There was lots to do on and off the ship. I especially enjoyed the visits to the windmills in Kinderdijk as well as the beer tasting in Cologne. The staff were also very lovely and I really enjoyed the food served on the cruise as you could tell it was high-quality. 10/10 would recommend to anyone wanting to travel.”
