New Year Tours

The New Year is always an exciting time for everyone as we say goodbye to the old and welcome in the new. Why not be part of the celebrations and join one of Edwards many exciting Continental breaks.

 

The mighty Rhine is Europe's best know river, flowing from the Alps of Switzerland to the Dutch North Sea coast, through a historical landscape of legend and superb scenery, past great cities, vineyards and fairytale castles perched on cliff tops.

 

 

MS Prinses Christina

Facilities on board include a forward lounge with a bar, dance floor with extensive views, restaurant and an open air sun deck. The ship is heated and fully air

conditioned. Cabins have twin beds, shower and toilet. Stairways can be steep so extra care is needed. www.transriverline.com

Day 1

Depart South Wales and travel to Folkestone/Dover for the crossing to Calais. We continue to our overnight's half board accommodation at the Novotel Ieper in Belgium. Following your dinner (time permitting), try to attend the moving Last Post Ceremony at 8.00pm which takes place every evening at the Menin Gate.

Day 2

We depart after breakfast and travel to Cologne, one of the largest cities in Germany and probably best known for the Kolner Dom, an impressive stone cathedral that took over 600 years to complete and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. We board our ship, The MV Christina from 15.00 hrs. So once you have settled into your cabin, you can spend some more time in the city before returning to the ship in time to relax before dinner. We stay berthed up in Cologne for the evening.

Day 3

We set sail from Cologne early morning and enjoy breakfast as we cruise up river to Koblenz. Lunch is taken on board before arriving into Koblenz mid afternoon. You will have a few hours free time to explore Koblenz which is situated at the confluence of the mighty Rhine and Moselle rivers and surrounded by four low mountain ranges. Its abundance of cultural monuments and historic buildings, its cosy lanes and narrow alleyways, the relaxed and happy atmosphere of its squares and river promenades make Koblenz a friendly town where its guests feel right at home. The view from Ehrenbreitstein Fortress high above the Rhine (118 metres) across the river down to "Deutsches Eck" with its re-erected equestrian statue of Emperor William I is simply spectacular. Enjoy the New Years Eve party on board ship; the gala dinner is followed with entertainment and a glass of bubbly at midnight.

Day 4

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast on board as we begin our cruise up river to Boppard arriving early afternoon where we moor up for the remainder of the afternoon and evening. Boppard has a pleasant promenade and shopping area. Dinner is taken on board.

Day 5

Sadly we depart after breakfast and travel to Calais for the afternoon sailing to Dover and then complete the journey home arriving back in South Wales during the evening.
