Travel by coach from your selected pick-up point, cross the Channel, and continue to join Olympia in Andernach. Enjoy a first meal on board, and settle into your cabin before Olympia sets sail.
Enjoy a scenic cruise past Koblenz and into the Moselle, today. By early afternoon, Olympia will have moored in Cochem, nestled beneath the Reichsburg's turrets. Explore the town, or join this afternoon's optional shore excursion to discover the castle and its secrets. This evening, enjoy dinner and entertainment on board, and step ashore into Cochem as Olympia moors here overnight.
Today, Olympia heads through a landscapde of vineyards and fields to pretty Traben-Trarbach where it moors for the night. Join the optional afternoon coach excursion and discover more of the Moselle valley and its winemaking villages as you travel the route of the Mosel Weinstrasse.
After a scenic morning cruise, Olympia will arrive in the twin town of Bernkastel-Kues. Discover this wine town on our walking tour, with its ancient, half-timbered houses surrounding the central square, and perhaps visit the ruins of the Burg Landshut to enjoy the view of the river.
Boasting the finest collection of Roman remains north of the Alps, Trier is Germany's oldest settlement. Today's optional excursion will take you to the city by coach. Enjoy our optional walking tour, and don't miss the birthplace of Karl Marx and the imposing Dom cathedral. This afternoon Olympia sails from Bernkastel-Kues, beginning her return journey downriver as you enjoy dinner and entertainment on board.
This morning, Olympia arrives in historic Koblenz. Enjoy a guided tour of the town as you wander through the Altstadt (old town) or along the riverfront promenade, before re-boarding the ship and continuing to Andernach, where you'll have the opportunity to go ashore. This evening, enjoy the special Captain's Farewell Dinner, while Olympia cruises gently to Cologne.
Leave Olympia and the Rhine behind this morning, and begin your return journey back to the UK.
Modern, well-equipped Olympia offers all you could wish to ensure that you enjoy every moment of your Rhine cruise. Offering accommodation and dining facilities for just under a hundred passengers, the ship has a warm, intimate feeling about her the minute you step on board.
