    Day 1

    Arrive Amsterdam, Embark Ship

    Welcome to Amsterdam! You’ll meet the crew on arrival and be transferred to your luxurious floating home for the next 15 days. Unpack, relax and get acquainted with your ship.

    Day 2


    Perhaps admire Amsterdam’s canals from a glass-top boat as you glide past 17th-century homes, churches and merchant houses. Maybe visit Zaanse Schans – known for its windmills and specialty produce. Or even sleep in and take the day as it comes. If you’re lucky enough to be on one of our spring departures, the tulips of Keukenhof Gardens are ready to greet you at every colourful turn.

    Day 3

    Andernach, Koblenz

    On a visit to Namedy Castle, go beyond the gates and wander about the rooms and grounds, then enjoy a cocktail party in the ballroom, where a pianist sets the mood.

    This morning will be spent cruising through Germany. You might want to head up to the sun deck and take in the views as they pass by. Disembark in Andernach for your first Signature Experience. Later, head back on board and enjoy dinner as your ship sets sail for Koblenz. Here, perhaps join your cruise director for an evening stroll through the charming village.

    Day 4

    Koblenz, Rudesheim

    A gondola ride over the Rhine Valley will give you the best perspective of the town. For something a little more quirky, Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum houses a collection of fine automated musical creations.

    Have your camera handy to capture some of the best scenery you’ll encounter as you cruise through the Rhine Gorge.

    Day 5


    Step ashore in Miltenberg today and set out on a guided exploration. Wander through cobblestone streets and admire the town’s enchanting half-timbered houses before time at leisure to explore on your own.

    Day 6


    Seize the day and walk to the 18th-century Würzburg Residence. Or travel to the fairytale town of Rothenburg. Maybe get to know the locals with a visit to a family-owned farm, with a home-cooked morning tea on the menu.

    Day 7


    Relax on board as you sail to Bamberg. On arrival, join an exploration with a local expert to uncover everything World Heritage-listed Bamberg has to offer.

    Day 8


    Perhaps journey through Nuremberg’s history with its Gothic churches and World War II sites. Or keep fit with a guided walk through the Schwarzach Valley.

    Day 9


    In Regensburg, explore its atmospheric World Heritage-listed city centre. With a history dating back to the Roman times, this incredible city was the first capital of Bavaria. Or, you might prefer to get active and take a guided bike ride to the Walhalla memorial. This neo-classical building sits above the Danube River and houses a hall of fame that honours notable politicians, artists, sovereigns and scientists from Germany’s past.

    Day 10

    Passau, Linz

    From Passau, head to Salzburg to visit some of the sites featured in The Sound of Music. Or set off into the Czech Republic, where Cesky Krumlov awaits. Either way, re-board your ship in Austria’s Linz. Alternatively, explore the town of Passau, followed by a relaxing day on board cruising to Linz.

    Day 11

    Melk, Durnstein

    Cruise through the Wachau Valley to Durnstein, where you’ll roam its cobblestone lanes at your leisure. Or perhaps take a guided bike ride along the river from Melk to Durnstein.

    Day 12


    After dinner, head to the princely family of Liechtenstein’s City Palace in the heart of Vienna, where we have arranged an exclusive cocktail party and private recital, just for you. A full orchestra will perform classical masterpieces by Mozart and Strauss. You will also be enchanted by an operatic recital and a performance by some members of the Mozart Boys’ Choir.

    Day 13


    In Esztergom, set out on a guided tour to discover this picturesque town and its historic buildings. Then, follow in the footsteps of the Habsburg Empire as you board the Grand Empress steam train, bound for Budapest. See inside some of the ornately adorned carriages from the early 1900s and be treated like royalty as you savour lunch on board. On arrival at Budapest Railway Station, see the Royal Waiting Room – a rather fitting way to end this opulent journey. Later, return to your ship. Operates on all departures between April and September.

    Day 14


    Enjoy a morning city tour of Budapest taking in its historic monuments, including Fisherman’s Bastion and Heroes’ Square. The afternoon is at leisure to further explore.

    Day 15

    Disembark Ship, Depart Budapest

    Sadly, the time has come to say goodbye and be transferred to the airport.
