CRYS­TAL ON THE MOSELLE

Signature Travel & Lifestyle - - Cruise -

Crys­tal Bach was re­cently chris­tened with all the cer­e­mony ex­pected for the in­dus­try’s first all-suite, all-but­ler river­ship. Although she is cur­rently ply­ing the Rhine, the 106-suite ship is set to ex­plore new wa­ters from 28 May 2019, when she sails her first 10-day roundtrip En­chant­ing Moselle itin­er­ary from Am­s­ter­dam, through the Nether­lands and Ger­many. The Moselle is a left trib­u­tary of the Rhine, join­ing the more fa­mous river at Koblenz. Ter­raced hill­side vine­yards climb up from the river­side, pro­duc­ing some of the world’s finest Ries­lings. You’ll have a chance to sam­ple th­ese dur­ing a visit to Bernkas­tel, be­fore an overnight stay in Trier, with its Ro­man ru­ins and 12th-cen­tury cas­tle, and re­turn­ing to Am­s­ter­dam via sto­ry­book Cochem, Bonn (Beethoven’s home­town) and Arn­hem, the Dutch site of WWII’s Op­er­a­tion Mar­ket-Gar­den.
