Your Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Germany, and transfer directly to the Olympia. Depending upon your arrival time, you may be able to explore the delightful 'Pearl of the Rhine', Boppard, which sits on the southern side of a great horseshoe bend in the river, in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage region of the Upper/Middle Rhine.

Day Two (New Year's Eve)

On New Year's Eve, Olympia sails to Rudesheim, 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.

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 Siegfried's Musik Kabinett.

This evening, join your fellow guests in celebration as you enjoy a New Year's Eve Dinner and Party on board Olympia, toasting the arrival of 2019 while ashore the people of Rudesheim enjoy their own revelries.

Day Three (New Year's Day)

Around lunchtime today, you'll arrive in Koblenz. Explore this traditional Rhineland town, then return to the Olympia, and round off your holiday - and your New Year celebrations - with a special New Year's Day Gala Dinner and entertainment on board.

Day Four

Bid "auf wiedersehen" to Olympia and this captivating part of the world as you return to the airport for your flight home.

Further Information

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Optional shore excursions

Optional excursions are available on all cruises, and we recommend that you book now to secure your place. If the number of bookings needed to operate any excursion is not reached, the excursion may be cancelled. In this case your payment will be refunded in full.

Tipping

Tipping is not compulsory, but from experience we know that many passengers like to leave gratuities for the crew. An envelope will be left in your cabin for this purpose.

Dress code

The dress code on board and ashore is casual. After 7pm, in the lounge and restaurant, shorts are not permitted, and footwear and a shirt or T-shirt must be worn.

Luggage

Where possible, non-rigid suitcases are easier to store within your cabin.

Drinking water

The tap water on board is safe to drink, but may not be to your taste due to the purification system. Bottled water can be purchased on board and locally.

Itinerary changes

On rare occasions, the Captain may need to alter the Cruise Itinerary. If this happens, the Cruise Manager will keep passengers informed.
