Travel to Cologne, where you’ll board your sleek A-ROSA vessel at the quayside. Perhaps take a stroll through the city before you depart in the late afternoon. Board your ship, dine when you wish at the gourmet buffet, maybe enjoying a nightcap before turning in.
Overnight, you’ll sail downstream, and onto Amsterdam.
This morning, you’ll arrive in Amsterdam, where the boat will moor until the following evening.
Join an included city tour of this wonderful city, or alternatively head off to explore Amsterdam's canals and narrow streets, step-gabled houses and cobbled squares by yourself.
Spend the next day as you please, perhaps continuing your exploration from yesterday, or making use of the ship’s on-board facilities. Your ship will depart later in the evening.
Early the morning, you’ll arrive at maritime gem Rotterdam, home of Europe’s largest seaport. The boat will moor here overnight and depart early the following morning, allowing you ample opportunities to explore.
This morning you’ll tie up at Dordrecht, one of the Netherlands’ lesser-known and oldest cities. Spend the day exploring, perhaps strolling along its picturesque waterways stopping for a coffee at one of the many riverside cafés, before your ship departs in the evening.
Step ashore this morning at Antwerp in Belgium, ‘Diamond Capital of the World’. Centred around the impressive Grote Markt square, a masterpiece of Flemish Renaissance architecture, Antwerp’s medieval heart is maze of café-lined cobbled streets. Spend the day at your leisure, before your ship departs in the early evening.
Enjoy a day on the water as E-Motion cruises back upstream to Cologne. Sit back, relax and make the most of the ship’s facilities as you enjoy the passing scenery on the final full day of your cruise.
