Cruise Details

Artists, musicians, writers, and poets from all over Europe have immortalized the Rhine’s unadulterated natural beauty in their songs, artworks, stories, and poetry. Today, the Rhine continues to inspire those who visit this UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site with more than 40 castles gracing its shores, along with vineyard terraced landscapes and stunning countrysides.

On board the stunning new ship, S.S. Antoinette, you will immediately feel like you stepped into France’s Château de Versailles during the late eighteenth century. Travel in luxurious elegance and comfort along the breathtaking Alsatian Wine Road and indulge in the region’s famous Rheingau Rieslings at Castle Vollrads, or view fairytale Strasbourg, one of Europe’s most attractive cities. All this and much more awaits you on “Castles along the Rhine.”
