River Cruise Itinerary

Day 1 (Wed, Jul 15, 2020): Prague

Welcome to Prague, capital of the Czech Republic. Transfer from the airport to your hotel. After checking in for a 2-night stay, enjoy free time to explore this celebrated city, or join our "welcome walk” to stretch your legs and get oriented.


Day 2 (Thu, Jul 16, 2020): Prague

This morning, tour the "City of a Hundred Spires.” A guided walk takes you through Old Town to the famed Charles Bridge. Then, travel to Hradčany for a guided tour inside Prague Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral. Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure; you can see the Town Hall's intricate 15th-century astronomical clock and spend some time in historic Wenceslas Square. You also have the opportunity today to join an optional tour to Lobkowicz Palace. (B)


Day 3 (Fri, Jul 17, 2020): Nuremberg

Travel to the Bavarian city of Nuremberg and join a tour that takes you to the ruins of Zeppelin Field, the Nazi parade grounds of the 1930s, and the Palace of Justice, the venerable vestige of the Nuremberg Trials. Briefly stop at the courthouse before returning to Old Town, enclosed within ancient city walls. Complete your day with a walk from the imperial castle grounds, past the Albrecht Dürer House to the Main Market Square, with its elaborate Gothic fountain. Continue to Bamberg to embark your ship. (B, D)


Day 4 (Sat, Jul 18, 2020): Bamberg

Today enjoy a walking tour of Bamberg's beautifully preserved Old Town area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, then take time to explore or perhaps sample the town's famous locally brewed smoky beer, rauchbier. Enjoy lunch on board your ship before we depart this afternoon and begin cruising along the scenic Main River, which winds its way west through the Franconia region of Germany. (B, L, D)


Day 5 (Sun, Jul 19, 2020): Würzburg

Disembark in Würzburg, a Franconian wine town, and tour the Bishops' Residenz, a beautiful baroque palace with numerous paintings and frescoes.

Return to your ship and relax as you dine and cruise through the night. (B, L, D)


Day 6 (Mon, Jul 20, 2020): Heidelberg

We sail through the early morning, arriving in Wertheim after breakfast. Disembark for a full-day excursion to Heidelberg, an ancient city that is home to Germany's oldest university founded in 1386. Tour the imposing red sandstone ruins of Heidelberg Castle, built in the 12th century but twice destroyed by lightning and then later rebuilt. A guided walk through Heidelberg's Old Town and marketplace is included, as is lunch in a local restaurant. Return to your ship at dinnertime; we sail through the night. (B, L, D)


Day 7 (Tue, Jul 21, 2020): Mainz

Arrive in Mainz during breakfast, then disembark and join a guided tour of a city that boasts over 2,000 years of history. Walk along the picture-postcard streets of Old Town and stop at the Gutenberg Museum. Founded in 1900, 500 years after the birth of Johannes Gutenberg, the museum covers the history of the printed word and displays many illuminating books and fascinating printing technologies, including a replica of Gutenberg's workshop. Return to your ship for lunch and scenic afternoon cruising along the Rhine. Arrive in Rüdesheim midafternoon. You have time at leisure to enjoy the restaurants, bars and shops that line Rüdesheim's Drosselgasse, or you may choose to join an optional wine-tasting experience. Dine on board and remain docked overnight. (B, L, D)


Day 8 (Wed, Jul 22, 2020): Cochem

Cruise this morning through the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine. With castles perched on both sides, this area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Return to your ship before dinnertime; we sail through the night. (B, L, D)


Day 9 (Thu, Jul 23, 2020): Trier & Bernkastel

We dock in Bernkastel this morning, one of the Moselle's most beloved medieval villages and a thriving wine center. You might join an optional wine tasting excursion during your stay. Return to your ship for lunch and enjoy lovely unspoiled scenery as we cruise along the Moselle River toward Trier. We arrive this afternoon in time for a tour of Germany's oldest city. See the wonderfully preserved Roman Porta Nigra, Trier Cathedral and the Church of Our Lady. Dine on board. We remain docked here tonight so you may wish to take an evening stroll in town. (B, L, D)


Day 10 (Fri, Jul 24, 2020): Reims

Disembark in Trier this morning, then travel to Luxembourg where, at the American Cemetery, you can pay homage to the thousands of soldiers who lost their lives during the World War II Battle of the Bulge. Then pause in Reims to visit the cathedral and stop for lunch before continuing on to Paris. When you arrive in the romantic capital of France, check in to your hotel for a two-night stay. Your evening is free to explore and dine on your own. (B)


Day 11 (Sat, Jul 25, 2020): Paris

Today's tour begins with a drive along the Champs-Élysées, past the Arc de Triomphe to the world-famous Louvre.
