Fly to Germany, and transfer directly to the Olympia. Depending upon your arrival time, you may be able to explore delightful Boppard, the picturesque "pearl of the Rhine", with its great Roman fort and its beautiful historic quarter.
Early risers will be awake to see Olympia slip out of the harbour and begin her journey. Passing pretty villages and fairytale castles en route, and beneath the legendary Lorelei rock (where sirens were said to lure unsuspecting sailors to their ends), we'll sail to Rudesheim.
Spend the afternoon wandering Rudesheim's pretty streets, or join our late-afternoon optional excursion to enjoy an early evening wine tasting at a traditional 'weinkeller' and see the remarkable collection of musical instruments that are found in Rudesheim's Siegfried's Musikkabinett.
Around lunchtime, you'll arrive in Koblenz. Explore this traditional Rhineland town, or join our optional excursion to discover the great city of Cologne. You're free to explore the city, famous for the soaring twin towers of its mighty Gothic cathedral and its 'Altstadt' (Old Town) - its streets crammed with shops, cake-selling 'Konditorei' and bars where you can sample the city's famous 'Kolsch' beer.
This evening, enjoy a special Farewell Dinner and party with entertainment, to celebrate your last night aboard Olympia.
Bid "auf wiedersehen" to Olympia and this captivating part of the world as you return to the airport to check in for your flight home.
