Your Cruise Itinerary

Your Cruise Itinerary

Day 1: Embark In Cologne, Cruise To Bonn

We join the MPS Rotterdam in vibrant Cologne, with time to explore. We sail to Bonn later this evening and moor overnight.

Day 2: Bonn To Koblenz

We begin our leisurely cruise along the Rhine to the lovely city of Koblenz, set at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle. Spend time discovering the town’s riverside promenades and historical streets.

Day 3: Koblenz To Cochem

Moving onto the Moselle, enjoy the stunning scenery as we cruise along to Cochem. Known as the ‘Pearl of the Moselle’, Cochem is beautifully situated, surrounded by vineyards and overlooked by the impressive Reichsberg Castle.

Day 4: Cochem To Bernkastel

We sail on to pretty Bernkastel, where you can explore this historical town with its medieval market square, half-timbered houses, 17th-century town hall, and the famous Spitzhauschen or ‘pointed house’.

Day 5: Bernkastel To Traben Trarbach

After a morning in Bernkastel, we continue to Traben Trarbach, known for its picturesque setting amid the vineyards. This afternoon, enjoy an included coach transfer to Trier - famous for its Roman history.

Day 6: Traben Trarbach - Zell - Alken

After a morning’s sailing, we call at the wine-producing town of Zell, known for the wine ‘Zeller Schwartze Katz’ (Zell’s Black Cat). Onwards to Alken, seemingly untouched by time, where we moor overnight.

Day 7: Alken To Cologne

Leaving Alken, we enjoy our last day of cruising on the Rhine and Moselle rivers, before we return to Cologne, dominated by its majestic cathedral.

Day 8: Disembark in Cologne

It’s time to bid farewell to the MPS Rotterdam in Cologne and continue our journey home.
