Cruising aboard the deluxe m.s. Amadeus Silver III
We invite you to join us on this Great Journey through Europe, the trip of a lifetime and an opportunity to retrace the traditional
17th‑, 18th- and 19th-century “Grand Tour.” Travel through four countries and the western heart of the Continent on this carefully planned, exclusive itinerary. Cruise Holland’s waterways, surrounded by polder land reclaimed from the North Sea, and the fairy-tale beauty of the UNESCO-designated Rhine River and its Rheingau wine region; experience three of the world’s legendary railways and visit four important UNESCO World Heritage sites.
The exclusively chartered, deluxe m.s. Amadeus Silver III, launching in 2016, provides our accommodations en route from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, to Basel, Switzerland. Port calls along the way include Cologne, Koblenz, Rüdesheim and Mannheim for Heidelberg, Germany, and the lovely Alsatian city of Strasbourg, France, a fusion of both French and German cultures.
From Basel, journey overland through the verdant countryside of Switzerland. Stop in the medieval gem of Berne and in Interlaken, situated near the scenic, magnificent Bernese Oberland Alps. In Zermatt, marvel at the iconic Matterhorn as you travel aboard the Gornergrat Bahn, the country’s oldest cog railway. Then, cross the mountainous backbone of Switzerland aboard the celebrated, ingeniously engineered Glacier Express, and spend two nights in lovely Lucerne in the Five-Star Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern, where glorious panoramas surround you.
