Remarkable Rhine (2018) : River Empress
9 Days Basel To Amsterdam
Art, action and authentic encounters along the fabled Rhine River
Our newest itinerary on the Rhine River is a tantalizing mix of art, action and authentic encounters, showcasing The Netherlands, Germany, France and Switzerland at their postcard-perfect best and deeply delving into local culture and traditions to reveal the rich complexity that lies within.
Over the course of this nine-day journey, you'll have special access to the art collections of revered museums in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Cologne and Basel. At the Amsterdam Hermitage, for one, you'll see a treasure trove of Dutch artwork in the most exclusive manner imaginable-a private "Morning with the Masters" tour of the Portrait Gallery, an extremely rare opportunity to have these centuries-old masterpieces entirely to yourself. With your art historian guide, you'll also see part of the museum's blockbuster exhibition of Dutch Masters collected by Catherine the Great, an extraordinary show available only through May 2018.
For something completely different, choose from an array of active adventures onshore-this itinerary features more "Let's Go" excursions than any other, including expertly guided bike rides through Frankfurt's Old Town and Strasbourg's picturesque Petit France district. Equally immersive are our seven "Do as the Locals Do" excursions, each offering an in-depth look at daily life from an unforgettably authentic perspective. Along the way, indulge in Central Europe's delicious cuisine-Dutch cheese and fries, Alsatian choux-croute, Swiss-style sausages, Kölsch beer, unique wine vinegar aperitifs and Germany's famous white wines.
Oh, and did we mention the scenery? Standing on the top deck of your ship, watching the ever-changing landscape turn increasingly dramatic, you'll understand why people have been raving about the Rhine River Valley for centuries-and there's definitely no cause to stop
