Rhine River cruises will sail through Switzerland, France, Germany, and the Netherlands, past 30 fairytale castles, villages, and exciting cities. Highlights include Strasbourg, France, where guests can explore the nearby Black Forest or historic wine caves, and Amsterdam, where guests can take a boat ride through the canals and visit a fishing village.
Danube cruises visit Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary, with castle tours, "The Sound of Music"-themed excursions, cooking classes featuring local cuisine, and more. Cruises through France along the Seine include visits to Normandy beaches, Monet's house and gardens, and postcard-worthy small towns, with the option to extend your time in Paris with a two-night Paris Escape pre-cruise package.
