Food & Wine

Whether you're a connoisseur or simply an enthusiast, food and wine cruises are a fun and fascinating way to expand your horizons. Showcasing gastronomical regions along the Rhone, Rhine, Danube, Mosel and Douro Rivers, these cruises immerse you in Europe's incomparable dining culture and traditions. Excursions to beautiful vineyards, renowned wineries and historic cellars are combined with onboard wine tastings, food pairings and lectures hosted by distinguished food and wine authorities. You might learn how grapes are cultivated in Austria's Wachau Wine Valley, explore the Great Vat -- a 58,100 gallon wine cask -- in Heidelberg, or participate in tasting excursions of France's famed Burgundy, Chardonnay and Chateauneuf-du-Pape wines.

Most culinary and wine excursions and onboard tastings are included in the price of your river cruise, though there may be some optional activities available for an additional cost. As always, your accommodations and onboard meals and entertainment are covered in the upfront price.
