Highlights

 

Travel to one of the prettiest sections of the mighty Rhine, passing from the Netherlands to Switzerland, on an 10 day Amsterdam to Basel river cruise.

The itinerary begins as soon as embarkation formalities have concluded; with a Captain’s welcome cocktail and dinner. Use this opportunity to begin to meet your fellow passengers and settle into your cabin. Your first morning waking up aboard sees you venture into the heart of Amsterdam on a guided city tour. Among the sights and landmarks you will check off are the Royal Palace and Skinny Bridge. Give your feet a rest by then clambering onto a glass-top boat to cruise along Amsterdam’s famous canals and see more of the city from a watery vantage point. Leave the Netherlands behind as the Monarch Countess sets sails for Cologne, the capital of the Rhineland. A walking tour introduces you to the beauty of this port and there is time to experience its vibrant nightlife scene before the cruise departs for Koblenz. Sail past Lorelei Rock on the way to Mannheim and Speyer, and then make port in Strasbourg. It is in Strasbourg that you will soak up the city’s mix of French and German influences, as well as see its UNESCO World Heritage Site-listed centre.

The final stop on the river cruise is Breisach. This incredible city was restored following the destruction it suffered during World War II. Make sure to have a camera within arms’ reach to photograph the line-up of pastel-coloured houses and geranium-filled window boxes. Wind down with a stop at a local winemaker, and then toast to your magnificent tour experience with a farewell dinner aboard the ship. As well as a host of city and walking tours that are included in your cruise, passengers also have full use of the Monarch Countess’ world-class facilities, such as early-riser breakfasts, late-night snacks, daily entertainment from on-board musicians, fitness centre and a guest lounge.

This route is also available as a Basel to Amsterdam cruise.

 
 

Day 1: Amsterdam (D) cruise-icon

Prepare to embark on your stunning river cruise along the Rhine by stepping aboard the luxurious Monarch Countess.

Day 2: Amsterdam – Cologne (B, L, D) cruise-icon

Your first morning waking up aboard! Today’s agenda includes a sightseeing tour of Amsterdam that will offer insight into the old and new faces of this dynamic city. See the Royal Palace on Dam Square, the Dutch Monument dedicated to victims of WWII by Queen Juliana, and the aptly-named Skinny Bridge. You will then step onto a glass-top boat for a scenic cruise through Amsterdam’s emblematic canals. It is a beautiful way to get up close to admire some of the city’s most historic homes and 16th-century architecture.

Day 3: Cologne (B, L, D) cruise-icon

Day 4: Koblenz – Rüdesheim (B, L, D) cruise-icon

The Monarch Countess docks in Koblenz this morning.

Spend the afternoon relaxing on-board as the ship sails and watch as grand castles, vineyards and river-perched villages pass by. You’ll also see Lorelei Rock, a slate pile that rises from the river and was so named for the siren who was said to seduce travelling sailors. The cruise arrives in Rüdesheim, a town known for its production of riesling, this evening and there is opportunity to take a walk through the town on your own accord.

Optional: Marksburg Castle
Marksburg Castle is the only castle situated along the Rhine that has never been destroyed. As such, this 700-year-old structure is rich with history and fascinating artefacts that give insight into life during from the Middle Ages onwards.

The ship then departs for Strasbourg.

Optional: Heidelberg City Tour

Strasbourg is the capital of the Alsace region and is a wonderful blend of French and German cultures.

There is then some free time, or passengers can join the optional tour to Colmar in France. Tonight, say goodbye to your new-found river cruise friends at the Farewell Dinner served on-board.

Optional: Colmar City Tour

Itinerary: Please note, tour itinerary is subject to change without prior notice based upon weather, traffic conditions and other unforeseen occurrences. 
While most of the time river cruises operate exactly as planned, weather conditions may result in high or low water levels which impact a ship’s itinerary and, on occasion, render a ship unable to sail at all. On very rare occasions, other events such as heavy fog, a damaged lock, or an incapacitated vessel blocking the river, may impact a sailing. These events typically occur with little or no notice. In the event that a cruise is partially or completely impacted, the itinerary will be operated by deluxe motor coach, accompanied by a Tour Manager, with overnights in hotels. The itinerary will include as many of the originally scheduled sightseeing features as possible, considering the travel time and distances required, as well as meals. 
These alternative services will be provided at no additional charge.

Tipping: Whist gratuities for the Tour Manager and a driver are included, if you have enjoyed the service of the cruise staff, a tip (while not compulsory) is appropriate towards the end of your tour. While it may not be customary in Australia, tipping is entrenched into many cultures especially within the tourism industry globally.
