River Cruise Highlights

  • An effortlessly rewarding journey combining unforgettable daytime scenic river cruising and stops at a string of enchanting towns and cities – this is Germany at its beautiful best

  • See a medley of exquisite vineyards, forested hills, and picture-perfect historic towns as Brabant sails the Middle Moselle, Lower Moselle and Middle Rhine valleys; and marvel at Cologne’s stunning cathedral, the half-timbered houses of Bernkastel-Kues, Cochem’s imposing Reichsburg Castle and much more during time ashore

  • A taste of historic France is thrown in for good measure too – there’s a chance to explore the UNESCO-listed historic centre of Strasbourg before sailing through the Upper Rhine Valley and Grand Canal d’Alsace

Calling first at Cologne, there’s a chance to marvel at the remarkable exterior and interior of the city’s iconic twin-spired cathedral and explore the charming Old Town before continuing onward along the Rhine. You’ll pass by Bonn, birthplace of Beethoven and the former capital of West Germany, see the historic Dreesen and Petersburg hotels, and marvel at the gorgeous Siebengebirge Mountains en route to Remagen. This fascinating town is like a living-museum of wartime history. Be sure to visit the famous Ludendorff Bridge during your time here; one of the surviving towers is now an interesting museum exhibiting the role of Remagen and the Ludendorff in World War Two.

Brabant will then divert down the breathtaking Moselle, a simply unforgettable scenic river cruise experience. Revel in the glorious Middle Moselle Valley as you glide by the region’s steep vineyards and postcard-perfect riverbank towns towards Bernkastel-Kues, where a medley of half-timbered houses, welcoming wine taverns and stunning lush-green scenery beckons you ashore. The journey through the Moselle Valley will be extra special, as only smaller river boats can transit this narrow stretch. The delights of Cochem, including romantic squares and the imposing Reichsburg Castle, await the following morning before you sail through the sensational scenery of the Lower Moselle Valley to Koblenz. Here you can take in a plethora of historic landmarks, such as the ancient Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, the Prussian Electoral Palace and the 13th century Alte Berg.

Your time in Germany concludes in Speyer after yet more scenic cruising by the forests and fairytale fortresses of the Middle Rhine Valley. Speyer’s UNESCO-listed Romanesque Cathedral is a must-visit, while the city’s stellar museums are worth a look too. Finally, a foray into France ensures a memorable end to your cruise. Be mesmerised by the exquisite Cathédrale Notre-Dame and peaceful canals of Strasbourg, then sit back and relax as Brabant navigates the tranquil Upper Rhine Valley and the locks of the Grand Canal d’Alsace.

Accommodation

You’re sure to settle in straight away aboard Brabant, thanks to the boat’s comfortable and contemporary accommodation. Each bedroom features cherry wood interiors, stylish décor and generous storage space to ensure you feel relaxed and right at home from the moment you step on board.

Juliette balconies and panoramic windows are a welcome feature in many of the rooms (available for a supplement) – perfect for admiring gorgeous river scenery from the comfort of your own space.

A wide range of in-room facilities include a large flat-screen TV, complementary Wi-Fi, individual climate control, an in-room safe and a well-equipped en suite bathroom, all provided to make your stay relaxing and stress-free.

Please note: the windows in the Standard Rooms are positioned high up and cannot be opened.

Dining

The quality and variety of the cuisine on board Brabant is sure to be a highlight of your holiday.

In the morning you can wake up with 'Early Riser' coffee, tea and pastries, all before tucking into a hearty breakfast buffet. At lunch, you have the option to indulge with three delicious courses, supplemented by a variety of buffet options, in the Panorama Restaurant. Mid-afternoon the Panorama Lounge will serve up a sweet tooth-satisfying Afternoon Tea to help refuel after a morning of exploration. The crowning moment is sure to be the sumptuous five-course à la carte dinner*, served every evening in the Panorama Restaurant. To round the day off, late night snacks are available for those who are – somehow – still peckish. What's more, all this is included in your cruise price.

The carefully crafted lunch and dinner menus feature a few classic favourites and vegetarian options too, as well as regional dishes inspired by the stunning destinations on your itinerary. Should you have any special dietary requests, simply let us know at the time of booking – we’ll do our utmost to ensure your needs are met wherever possible.

And, on top of all the above which is included in the price of our River Cruises – we can offer you a great value Dining Drinks Upgrade package. For £10 per person, per night, you can enjoy as much red and white house wines, European lager, bitter and branded soft drinks at lunch and dinner as you like.

Dining Drinks Upgrade

Why not add the great value Dining Drinks Upgrade? For just £10 per person, per night, you can enjoy a choice of red and white house wines, a choice of beers and branded soft drinks at lunch and dinner.

Bar & Lounge

Brabant's bar and lounge are perfect for enjoying some peaceful relaxation with family and new-found friends as the boat glides slowly along beautiful rivers and by postcard-perfect scenery.

There’s the Amadeus Club, where you can sit back and take in unforgettable scenery with a refreshing cup of tea or coffee – which is available 24 hours a day – in hand, browse a small selection of books and newspapers, or play cards, games and puzzles. You can even catch up on your emails and social media on one of the desktop computers.

When the weather's fine, you can grab a drink from the Lido Bar out on Sun Deck before retiring to one of the many sun chairs to soak up the scenery and sunshine.

The Panorama Bar and Lounge is always a great place to relax, enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple and socialise, however it’s in the evenings when this stylish venue on Mozart Deck really comes to life. Gentle live entertainment rounds off each day here, with performances from singers, pianists and other musicians, complemented by specially-chosen regional acts where available.

Facilities & Amenities

The time you spend on board Brabant should be relaxing and carefree from the moment you embark, which is why the river boat features everything you need to refresh and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul and make the most of your well-earned time away from the stress and strains back home.

The Sun Deck is a great place to enjoy fresh air, top-up your tan and take in breathtaking scenery on one of the many sun chairs perhaps with a drink from the Lido Bar in hand. For the ultimate indulgence, you might want to treat yourself to a soothing massage or luxurious bath experience at the Vital Club on Haydn Deck. Next door to the Vital Club is the Hair Salon, where you can perfect your current look or perhaps try something new at the hands of the expert stylist.

If you want to ensure you stay in shape during your river cruise, you can do so at Brabant’s on board Fitness Room. It’s open around the clock, so you can work out to your heart’s content and at a time that suits you. You can also use one of the boat’s complimentary bicycles for a leisurely bike ride ashore – it’s a great way to keep fit while exploring the charming towns, cities and villages on your itinerary.

Entertainment

With so much time in port, river boats tend to have less activities on offer than ocean ships. However, despite Brabant being little smaller than many other river boats, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to keep you entertained throughout the time you spend on board.

During the day you might choose to relax at the Amadeus Club, where you can play cards, games and challenge yourself with brain-teasing puzzles; lose yourself in a good book; and browse the internet to catch up with the latest news, or friends and family at home. Or of course you could simply sit back and marvel at the ever-changing countryside scenery with a cup of tea or coffee in hand.

Alternatively, you might prefer to spend your time out on the Sun Deck, where you can take in spectacular views over a drink from the Lido Bar; top up your tan on one of the many sun chairs; or even try your hand at shuffleboard and giant chess.

In the evening, be sure to take a seat at the stylish Panorama Bar to enjoy gentle live entertainment from a host of talented performers. Whether you’ve spent the day sailing along beautiful rivers or exploring ashore in a captivating town or city, you’re sure to savour soothing sounds of singers, pianists and other musicians here.
