The former East Germany and the Czech Republic are wonderlands of massive Gothic cathedrals, medieval city squares, splendid royal palaces, and breathtaking natural beauty. For decades, these treasures were under Soviet control and off limits to visitors from the West. Now, you can enjoy them the best way: on a leisurely European River cruise aboard a ship chartered exclusively for Vantage travelers. On your Elbe River cruise, you'll journey along a river that flows through the heart of the region — but because it has no locks or dams, it requires a ship specially built to navigate it. The ms Frederic Chopin is one of these rare European river cruise vessels. On this voyage, you'll see where the Protestant Reformation was launched, discover how Dresden china is made, dine as an honored guest in a Czech castle, enjoy private concerts, and so much more. And framing your Elbe River cruise are stays at superior hotels in two dynamic world capitals, Berlin and Prague. Don't miss your chance to explore the enchanting Elbe on a uniquely rewarding, brand-new European river cruise for 2014!
