FLORIADE EXPO 2022, AMSTERDAM, COLOGNE, STRASBOURG, AND MAINZ

On this beautiful cruise along the Rhine River, you’ll journey from Amsterdam to Mainz, enjoying the European charm of Germany, France, and the Netherlands as we dock at historical and quaint cities throughout these countries.

In 2022 our Rhine River Cruise tour includes an extra day in Amsterdam with tickets to explore the Floriade Expo 2022 which takes place once per decade. This year, the event takes place in Almere, just outside of Amsterdam, and features not only a wide variety of plants and flowers, but will showcase cultural exhibitions, live entertainment, and green solutions for healthier and more sustainable lifestyles.

Discover Amsterdam’s rich culture, distinctive architecture, and scenic canals. Experience all the gems of Germany as you sail to and explore Cologne, Koblenz, Mainz, and Mannheim. In Strasbourg, France you’ll see some of the city’s most impressive buildings and architecture, and then take a walking tour to admire the half-timbered houses. Plus, throughout this cruise, you’ll simply love each day’s incredible views from on the water.
