Your 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 and then why not venture out into the beautiful city of Cologne? The city’s iconic Gothic cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but there is plenty more to discover in Cologne, including the historical 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, historical buildings and twisting alleyways which are a delight to explore. A lunchtime sailing brings us to Boppard, the ‘Pearl of the Rhine’.

Day 3 Boppard to Rudesheim

Today we continue our Rhine 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 hillside views 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.
