Switzerland, the Heart of the Rhine & Moselle

Join Vantage aboard the deluxe River Splendor and discover why our river cruises are award-winners. You’ll journey the entire length of the Rhine between Holland and Switzerland, also venturing up the breathtakingly scenic Moselle to take in its steep-sloped banks cloaked in vines.

Winding through the Beautiful Alsatian Wine Route

Join Vantage on our Switzerland and the Heart of the Rhine & Moselle river cruise and experience the Alsatian Wine Route, the oldest and best-known wine route in France.

Walking tour of Strasbourg

In Strasbourg, an included walking and canal boat tour take you to the elegant Palais Rohan, Cathedral Notre Dame, the ultra-modern European Union Parliament, the quaint shops and parks of “La Petite France”, and the Tanner’s Quarter.

Von Nell Wine Estate

Visit Weingut Georg Fritz von Nell winery for a wonderful lunch.

Take a Ride through the Rhine Valley

Cruise through the Rhine Gorge, known for its steep hills topped with castles and ruins that tower above the river.

Trier, Germany

Discover Trier, the oldest city in Germany, on an included tour that visits the amphitheater and includes a viewing of the Porta Nigra (a massive stone gate), the Roman Bridge, and Barbara Baths.

Reichsburg Castle

Enjoy a guided visit to fairy-tale Reichsburg Castle, perched atop a steep hill in the quaint town of Cochem on the Moselle River. Meet the “count” in the castle and enjoy a glass of the fine Riesling produced in the area.

Gutenberg Museum, Mainz

Located at the confluence of the Main and Rhine Rivers, Mainz was once the seat of the Holy Roman Empire. Here, you’ll visit the Johannes Gutenberg Museum, dedicated to the inventor of moveable type and home to one of the original Gutenberg Bibles.

Biking Opportunities

On board our ships, complimentary bicycles are available for your use so you can pedal along the scenic paths that wind along the river, or cycle around town, during your free time.

Optional Extension to Bruges

Add another European jewel before or after your river cruise explorations with this optional extension to historic Bruges. You'll get to know this well-preserved medieval city with an included canal boat cruise beneath its graceful bridges, as well as a walking tour along its cobbled streets. You'll admire the juxtaposition of historic Burg Square, City Hall, and the Church of Our Lady with the new Concertgebouw concert building in 'tZand Square, which opened in 2002. This extension also includes a Welcome Dinner at your hotel, an optional excursion to Ypres, and free time to explore as you wish.

Optional Extension to Montreux, Switzerland

The 19th-century luminaries who once visited Montreux — Tolstoy, Nabokov, Flaubert, Dostoyevsky — were no doubt drawn by the pleasant climate, idyllic surroundings, and shimmering waters of Lake Geneva. This resort town remains an elegant escape, and you’ll experience its many charms on this extension. Enjoy a full-day tour of the Château de Chillon and Gruyère region — which includes some time at the Lavaux Vineyard Terraces, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Witness the art of chocolate-making with a local chocolatier. And take time on your own to revel in the beauty of this lakeside gem.
