Your River Cruise Itinerary - Rhine Inclusive Cruise

Day 1: Embark in Cologne, cruise to Koblenz

The MV Virginia is just waiting to welcome you on board today. Settle in then why not venture out into the beautiful city of Cologne. The stunning Gothic cathedral here is itself a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but there is lots more to discover, including the historic old town and bustling shopping streets. We depart later this evening for our overnight sailing to Koblenz.

Day 2: Koblenz to Boppard

We arrive this morning in Koblenz, idyllically situated on the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers. The town has an abundance of cultural monuments, historic buildings and twisting alleyways, which are a delight to explore. A lunchtime sail brings us to Boppard, ‘The Pearl of the Rhine’.

Day 3: Boppard to Rüdesheim

Today we continue our cruise, passing the famous Loreley Rock, where legend says a beautiful siren bewitched passing sailors, making them crash into the rocks. Enjoy the riverside scenery and hills passing us by until we arrive in Rudesheim. This popular town is famous for its wine production, so why not enjoy a stroll along the vibrant Drosselgasse street to sample the produce at one of the quaint wine taverns?

Day 4: Rudesheim to Cologne

Spend a relaxing morning on the river as we continue our leisurely cruise back to Cologne, arriving after lunch. Join our included excursion to discover the city’s many sights, before we moor here overnight.

Day 5: Disembark in Cologne

Today is sadly time to depart the ship and journey home.
