Excellent ship La Fayette with good accommodation and food.
However 80percent of customers Were french which unfortunately did not help to make for a welcoming atmosphere on board!! Uk passengers were segregated on trips and in the dining room explained due to language . French talked through all English announcements. Very annoying,!! Dress code very lacking at dinner. Cruise staff introduced games and had a crew entertainment show which was more suitable for a holiday.camp and very embarrassing for crew and customers alike.
No way to escape unless you went to your room!
Would not reccommend this cruise
Total meals included:
Travel to Basel where you will be met and transferred to your cruise ship for embarkation. There will a welcome cocktail reception before dinner on-board tonight.
Today, perhaps join the optional guided visit of Basel, an ancient medieval town, situated in the heart of Europe, on the Rhine banks. In the afternoon, an optional excursion visits the Rhine Falls, one the most spectacular sites to visit in Switzerland. Later, cruise to Breisach.
Have free time in the city of Breisach this morning. Breisach lies on the Rhine Valley and is renowned for housing one of the largest wine cellars in Europe and also for its historic cathedral. An optional excursion in the afternoon uncovers Colmar and the Unterlinden Museum.
Admire the magnificent wine-producing region as you cruise to Strasbourg today. Strasbourg is a delightful blend of cobbled lanes and half-timbered houses which has changed hands between the French and Germans down the centuries. Discover the European Parliament building, tour the interior of the stunning Gothic cathedral and visit the La Petite France old quarter, where 500-year-old houses cluster around miniature canals. An optional guided tour will show you the very best of this beautiful city.
Arrive in Mainz today and perhaps join the optional guided tour of the city and a visit the Gutenberg Museum (closed on Mondays). Mainz was founded more than 2,000 years ago by the Romans and is currently the capital of the Rhineland-Palatinate. Later, cruise to Koblenz. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2002, the legendary and romantic Rhine River is bestowed with truly magnificent landscapes. We’ll pass the legendary Lorelei rock, named after a beautiful young maiden who, according to German legend, threw herself into the river in despair over a faithless lover and was transformed into a siren. We arrive into Koblenz in the evening.
Today, we continue our cruise up the magnificent Rhine Valley. The Rhine River follows a remarkable route, meandering between sheer rocks, small islands and fortified castles sitting high above the vineyards. This afternoon, perhaps join an optional guided tour of Cologne. At the crossroads of Europe since the Middle Ages, Cologne has kept its importance as a vibrant commercial and industrial city, as well as a cultural and religious centre. You have some free time on your own before we return by coach to Düsseldorf. Tonight, there will be a Gala evening on-board.
Today, there will be an optional guided tour of the Dutch Open Air Museum of Arnhem. Return to the ship in Xanten and cruise to Amsterdam during the afternoon. We’ll cross the border into Germany near Emmerich, glide past Arhem, and enter Holland.
Today, perhaps join the optional guided visit of Amsterdam. The Dutch capital is a truly delightful city with a rich and fascinating past. This afternoon, have free time on your own or join the optional excursion to Haarlem. Dutch Haarlem dates back to Gothic times and this is reflected in its architecture and cobbled streets. A final evening of dancing and entertainment on-board awaits.
After breakfast, disembark your ship and transfer to the airport for your return to the UK.
