Beyond the mighty Rhine Gorge the great Rhine Valley carves its way along the much-disputed borderlands of France and Germany.

There is a spacious open-air Sun Deck, which is partially covered. There are stair lifts between the Main and Promenade Decks, and between the Main Deck and the restaurant on the Cabin Deck.

All cabins have recently been refurbished and have beds at floor level, shower & toilet, satellite television, in-house movies, continental electricity socket (220 volts). The ship is fully air-conditioned throughout.
