The SS Antoinette redefines European river cruise luxury, with features such as a 20-seat cinema and indoor pool
A river of legend and romance, celebrated in art, poetry, literature and music, the Rhine is a joy to cruise. Rhine river cruises bring vistas of rolling vineyards and picturesque villages seemingly unchanged in hundreds of years . The stretch known as the Middle Rhine Valley, overlooked by 40 fairytale castles, has been recognised as a World Heritage Site in its own right.
Combining this inspiring river cruise aboard the spectacular SS Antoinette, the finest cruise ship to sail its waters, with the beauty of the Swiss lakes makes for a magical river cruise & tour.
Rüdesheim is truly one of the prettiest towns in the Rhine Valley and is famed for its winemaking tradition dating back to Carolingian times, with its famous Drosselgasse, a narrow alleyway lined with wine taverns and shops. This morning we enjoy an included wine tasting at the prestigious Castle Vollrads, which is perfectly situated in the vineyard covered hills and is one of the world’s top wine estates for Rheingau Rieslings. We then set sail this afternoon and enjoy the scenery en route to Boppard, where you can enjoy a stroll before dinner this evening.
