Explore Europe’s rich history on an incredible Rhine River Valley cruise through the Netherlands, Germany, France, and Switzerland, diving deep into the region’s culture, natural wonders, traditions, and historical significance. Delve into the region’s world-renowned museums in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Cologne, Basel, and Arnhem. Along the way, indulge in central Europe’s delicious cuisine—Dutch cheese and fries, Alsatian choux-croute, Kölsch beer, unique wine vinegar aperitifs, and Germany’s famous white wines.

Enjoy luxury amenities aboard River Empress, whether you’re dining in the ship’s sleek restaurant—reminiscent of a New York jazz and supper club—or relaxing over a cup of tea on the Sun Deck as you gaze out at the 360-degree view of the Rhine River Valley.
