Admire the sun-kissed splendour of the fabulous French Riviera as you cruise along the coast aboard Boudicca, and step ashore to experience the glitz and glamour of this stunning region as you encounter four luxurious destinations in just three days.

In historic Toulon you can explore the citys beautiful Old Town and appreciate the fine Romanesque architecture of the grand Cathédrale Sainte-Marie-Majeure; savour the sights and scents of traditional Provencal markets on Cours Lafayette, and take a cable car to the top of Mont Faron for unspoilt views of the Rivieras magnificent scenery. A morning in Nice could be spent relaxing on the gorgeous golden beaches, or wandering along the iconic, palm-lined Promenade des Anglais – the perfect way to prepare for an exciting call into Monaco. Here you can indulge yourself at world-famous restaurants and glamourous casinos, immersing yourself in the vibrant nightlife, and explore roads used for the annual Formula One race, where extravagant locals often parade their own exotic supercars.

Cannes – home of the world-famous international film festival – is your final call on the Riviera. Sample the movie-star lifestyle with a stroll along La Croisette – the catwalk by the sea – stopping to enjoy fantastic shopping in high-end stores and boutiques along the way, soak up the glorious sunshine on the beautiful beaches, or perhaps take a tour to St. Tropez, the destination of choice for film stars from yesteryear. You may even spot a few celebrities here if you are lucky. You will also sail to Spain and Portugal on this stunning 16 night sailing, visiting four stylish, attraction-packed cities. See the palaces, churches and castles of Lisbon, marvel at Gaudis Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, and discover historic structures and sun-kissed sands in Mahon and Cadiz.

The incredible diversity of Germany awaits your discovery on this cultural jaunt aboard Braemar; which includes hours of daytime scenic cruising along stunning, highly-rated waterways and calls into some of the country’s most beautiful, historic and exciting destinations.

Sailing along the size-restricted Flensburg fjord, you’ll enjoy unspoilt views of the picturesque countryside lining both the German and Danish shores of the fjord, and glide past the pretty Oxen Islands. Once ashore in Flensburg, sample the local brew at one of Germany’s best-known breweries, or perhaps journey into the delightful Schleswig-Holstein region and visit historic sites such as Gluecksburg Castle. Docking in Travemünde next, you can take a trip to UNESCO-listed Lübeck and admire the outstanding structures from the city’s Hanseatic past before sailing 53-nautical-miles along the calm, tranquil waters of the Kiel Canal – a feat that only smaller ships such as Braemar can manage.

An extended stay in Hamburg allows you plenty of time to explore the city and discover the many highlights, such as the imposing neo-Renaissance style Rathaus, incredible St. Michael’s Church and bustling HafenCity urban quarter – home to busy bars, trendy restaurants and lively plazas – at your leisure. You could even enjoy a glide across the beautiful Alster Lake in the evening on an unforgettable boat trip. A full day of scenic cruising along the enchanting Elbe and Weser Rivers is then followed by a call into beautiful Bremen. With Balmoral docking in the heart of the city – rather than an hour away in Bremerhaven – you’ll find a multitude of attractions from the moment you step ashore. Visit the UNESCO-listed market square to see the impressive 15th century Town Hall and an abundance of gothic-style structures; then head to the modern Überseestadt district to catch a show at the theatre and grab a bite in one of many stylish cafés and restaurants.

Cities and Waterways of Europe 8 nights on the Balmoral

Cruise from Dover, UK

Amenities & Facilities

Air conditioning Laundry service Luggage Storage Nature or Scenic Area Paraplegic Rooms Restaurant Rooms Satellite TV Spa Swimming Pool

Stop overnight in three of Europe’s most picturesque and interesting cities and experience hours of relaxing scenic cruising along winding waterways in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium on this attraction-packed, 8-night cultural cruise aboard Balmoral.

Two days in Hamburg allows plenty of time for exploring the pretty streets of the historic Hanseatic city. Impressive landmarks to tick off your must-see list include the neo-Renaissance style City Hall, St. Michaels Church and the soaring, 482 feet-high steeple of St. Nikolai church, while the unique Miniature Wonderland – home to the worlds biggest model railway – is well worth a visit. In the evening, you could venture into the vibrant Reeperbahn district to try local beers and culinary treats at fine bars and restaurants, or perhaps enjoy an unforgettable boat ride on the Alster Lake. Gliding along the Elbe River past rolling hills, vast plains and beautiful countryside will be a fitting conclusion to your German jaunt.

A cruise along the Nordzeekanaal will then lead you to Amsterdam, where your overnight stay coincides with the annual Kings Day celebrations. Be sure to dress yourself in orange – the Netherlands national colour – and then head into the heart of the city to enjoy the fun and festivities with excited locals. See brightly decorated boats packed into the iconic canals, treat yourself to a traditional tompouce pastry from one of the food stalls, and grab a bargain at the bustling flea market. Alternatively you could escape the hustle and bustle and visit world-famous attractions such as the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum and Anne Frankhuis, which will all still be open on the big day. Finally after winding along the Western Scheldt River, Balmoral will dock in delightful Antwerp – a city famed for its fine architecture, delicious chocolate and sparkling diamonds. You could indulge in some sightseeing and shopping to discover highlights such as medieval Cathedral of Our Lady and pick up a few gems to take home, then take the weight off your feet in a charming cafe with a hot chocolate in hand.
