River CruiseExclusive
 
Wine Cruises
Immerse yourself in the many flavors of Europe on one of our unique Wine Cruises, which let you add a unique, epicurean dimension to one of our European itineraries. Like our standard river cruises, guests have the opportunity to join tours that highlight the famous sights in each port of call. These special itineraries, however, offer guests a perfect blend of wine-related experiences and excursions in grand capitals and charming towns. You’ll taste local cuisine, discover how wine is made and, of course, partake in tastings — all at no additional cost. Whether you have a seasoned appreciation for fine wine, or simply indulge in a sip here and there, this is a wonderful way to uncork the traditions of the local culture and learn about the region you’re visiting.
 
Delectable cuisine and fine wine abound on these special cruises, both on board and ashore. While on the ship, you’ll enjoy wine tastings led by a wine expert. You’ll also indulge in award-winning cuisine paired with hand-selected, premium wines. There are plenty of varieties, and you’ll have the opportunity to try different selections every day. And then, of course, there are exclusive excursions designed to bring the rich wine history and culture of Europe to life. You’ll visit private cellars, renowned wineries and stunning vineyards where more tastings and pairings await. All this while discovering all the wonderous sights and landmarks along the way.
 
Your Wine Expert
 
Each Wine Cruise is hosted by a qualified wine expert, who usually brings hand-selected wines on board that are served during meals and at tastings. Some wines come from the expert’s own winery and other varieties are sourced from local wineries located along the cruise itinerary. The wine expert will recommend food and wine pairings, lead discussions and hold tastings during your cruise. They will talk all things wine and provide insight into different varieties.
 
Enchanting Rhine (Wine Cruise)
 
7-NIGHT CRUISE
 
CRUISE FROM : Basel to Amsterdam
 
Castles from ancient empires and steep vineyards sprout up from every angle, which makes cruising on the Rhine River feel like entering a scene out of a storybook. Wind through Switzerland, France, Germany and the Netherlands, diving deep into the history and wine regions of this vital waterway. Inspirational towns have given way to great stories, such as Heidelberg, where Mark Twain wrote “A Tramp Abroad.” Timeless traditions still remain intact—from the making of Cologne’s Kölsch beer to the making of Rüdesheimer coffee. Sample wines from France’s Alsace region while in Riquewihr, Freiburg and Strasbourg; and walk through the vineyards of Rüdesheim tasting the Rheingau’s Rieslings. Take a front-row seat on this enchanting journey along the Rhine.
