Rhine & Moselle Fairytales Cruise Review

“Embarking on this luxury cruise was an exhilarating adventure from start to finish! Cologne offered history, beer tasting, and bike tours while Lahnstein allowed us to embark on a once-in-a-lifetime visit to Ehrenbreitstein Fortress and go on a beautiful bike journey. The Moselle Valley was also breathtaking as to be expected and it’s much more spectacular in person. My wife and I were particularly fond of the Black Forest tour but we loved every second of this cruise. The ship’s amenities and phenomenal services also elevated every moment and ensured a truly unforgettable experience.”
