Join us before the coach boards the ferry to cross the Channel, or book an overnight stay at the Holiday Inn Ashford, Kent, and board our coach when it stops at the hotel. Later this evening you'll arrive in Boppard, the picturesque 'pearl of the Rhine', with its great Roman fort and its beautiful historic quarter. Board Olympia in time to enjoy a buffet dinner, and the warmth and welcome of your first night.
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 fates.
Day Two (New Year's Eve)
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 2018 while ashore the people of Rudesheim enjoy their own revelries.
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 Three (New Year's Day)
After an early breakfast, bid auf wiedersehen to Olympia and this captivating part of the world as our coach carries you back across Europe and across the Channel to the UK.
