Cruising aboard the Deluxe m.s. Amadeus Princess and featuring the Glacier Express
*This itinerary also operates in the reverse direction.
We invite you to join us on this Great Journey through Europe, a trip of a lifetime. Travel through four countries and the western heart of the Continent. Cruise from the Dutch polder land, reclaimed from the North Sea, through the fairy-tale beauty and UNESCO-designated section of the Rhine River, experience three of the world's legendary railways and visit four more important UNESCO World Heritage sites.
The exclusively chartered, Deluxe m.s. Amadeus Princess, one of the finest ships sailing Europe's waterways, 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, travel overland through the verdant countryside of Switzerland. Stop in the medieval gem of Berne and in Interlaken, scenically situated near the magnificent Bernese Oberland Alps. Spend two nights in Zermatt, where you will marvel at the iconic Matterhorn as you travel aboard the Gornergrat Bahn. Then, cross the mountainous backbone of Switzerland aboard the celebrated Glacier Express. Our tour concludes in lovely Lucerne for two nights in the Five-Star Hotel Schweizerhof, where glorious panoramas surround you.
Please join us on this extraordinary, unique Great Journey through Europe, exclusive to affinity travelers. We encourage you to reserve soon as capacity is limited and, year after year, this program sells out quickly!
