The service was excellent throughout and the trouble your staff went to to get my wife and I off the ship when back in Hull was greatly appreciated, as was our night on the Captains Table. We look forward to cruising with you again.

A memorable summer river cruise
Cruise along the meandering Moselle and down the mighty Rhine, and enjoy this most scenic of passages where villages are flanked by vineyards and crowned by fairytale, turreted castles. As well as calls at a trio of exquisite wine towns - with the opportunity to drive the scenic Mosel Weistrasse - you'll visit the fascinating cities of Trier and Koblenz.
There's far more to life on board Olympia than we could possibly fit on one page. Click here to find out more about her fantastic facilities and welcoming atmosphere.
All prices are per person and based on two sharing. Single cabins are available for a supplement
Make your own way to Dover (or Ashford - see below) and join our coach before it boards the ferry to cross the Channel and head to join Olympia in the ancient Rhineland town of Andernach. Enjoy a first meal on board, and settle into your cabin before Olympia sets sail.
Enjoy a wonderful, scenic cruise past Koblenz and into the Moselle. By early afternoon, Olympia moors in delightful Cochem, nestled beneath the Reichsburg Castle's fairytale turrets. Explore the town, or join this afternoon's optional shore excursion to discover the castle and its secrets.
This evening, enjoy dinner and entertainment on board, and step ashore into beautiful Cochem as Olympia moors here overnight.
Today Olympia heads to pretty Traben-Trarbach where she moors for the night. An optional excursion by coach this afternoon, in the company of our Tour Manager, will bring to life the Moselle Valley and its winemaking villages, as you travel along the Mosel Weinstrasse's breathtaking route.
This morning enjoy a pleasant cruise along the river, passing vineyard-clad hills and rolling hills, as Olympia heads towards Bernkastel-Kues. Discover this famous wine town on our walking tour, with its ancient, half-timbered houses surrounding the central square, and perhaps visit the ruins of the Burg Landshut to enjoy the spectacular view of the river.
Boasting the finest collection of Roman remains north of the Alps, Trier is Germany's oldest settlement. Today's optional excursion will take you to the city by coach. Enjoy our optional walking tour, and don't miss the birthplace of Karl Marx and the imposing Dom cathedral.
This afternoon Olympia sails from Bernkastel-Kues, beginning her return journey downriver as you enjoy dinner and entertainment on board.
This morning, Olympia arrives in historic Koblenz. Enjoy a guided tour of the town as you wander through the pretty Altstadt or along the riverfront promenade, before re-boarding the ship and continuing to Andernach, where you'll have the opportunity to go ashore.
This evening, enjoy the special Captain's Farewell Dinner, while the ship heads to Cologne.
Bid farewell to Olympia, and begin your coach journey back to Dover (or Ashford), from where you'll be free to make your own way home.
Our flexible joining options allow you to travel on any date, and as an added convenience we've arranged two possible pre-departure options for you. Make your own way to the Holiday Inn Ashford North and stay the night (car parking is included), and our coach will call for you at the hotel on the way to the Channel.
Alternatively, those living close by, or wishing to join the coach at Dover, are free to make their own way to the port. Passengers can take advantage of our easy pre-booking service and reserve car parking at Dover Eastern Docks for just £7 per day.
