Majestic Four Rivers Cruise
Open your heart and mind to the diverse influences of the mighty River Rhine, whose strength is
drawn from the European rivers that feed it. On its journey from the mountains of Switzerland to
the flatter landscape of the Netherlands, the Rhine links diverse landscapes and cultures. Our
meander along three of the tributaries that feed Germany's Romantic Middle Rhine section
provides vistas ranging from the spirited Moselle and fabled Rhine Gorges, to the 21st century
cosmopolitan cities occupying its broader plains. Whether we're gazing at the Moselle's steep vine clad
slopes, Heidelberg's romantic castle on the Neckar or the Main's high-rise "Mainhattan" skyline
of Frankfurt, our Four Rivers Cruise admirably pays tribute to the mighty Rhine and her tributaries.
