Explore the Beautiful Rhineland through Germany and France with Crui.se
“Having cruised the Rhine and Danube several times, this was a bit of a voyage of discovery for us as the itinerary includes destinations you just don’t visit on other cruises. Strasbourg, in particular was fascinating and Heidelberg so very picturesque plus you pass through the Rhine Gorge not once but twice!! It’s just a little bit different but what isn’t different is the fabulous Riviera Travel cruise ship and the amazing service on board, just sheer luxury.”
Find answers to some of the most common questions about river cruising here.
Some river cruises between Mainz and Nuremberg encounter low bridges and locks, so parts of the Sun Deck have to be closed for safety reasons. However, this cruise is unaffected by these restrictions so that guests can enjoy uninterrupted access to the Sun Deck at all times on their journey.
There is complementary Wi-Fi available on board all our European river cruise ships. Sometimes, connectivity can be affected by terrain or even weather events, but on the majority of our European voyages, coverage is pretty consistent and uninterrupted, meaning you can stay in touch with your friends back home.
