FAM News
is pleased to be offering very Special Discounted Rates on the 90 passenger 5-Star MS Royal Crown on the August 20-27th for an 8 day / 7 night "Delights of the Rhine & Moselle" river cruise from Dusseldorf to Trier visiting Dusseldorf, Germany; Bonn, Germany; Konigswinter, Germany; Koblenz, Germany; Cochem, Germany; Zell, Germany; Traben Trabach, Germany; Bernkastel-Kues, Germany; and Trier, Germany. The Moselle river is the prettiest, quaintest river in Europe, especially just before the September harvest.

The MS Royal Crown awaits you in the great metropolis of Dusseldorf. We sail to historical Bonn, once the German capital and the birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven. Bonn’s history goes back more than 2000 years, and Bonn is full of fascinating museums.  The taverns and opportunities to try the local gastronomy will also not disappoint.  Not far from Bonn is the stunning riverside resort of Konigswinter.  Here you can hike or explore the area with Germany’s oldest cog railway.  Further upstream we reach the charming city of Koblenz which sits at the confluence of the Rhine and the Moselle rivers.  Explore its winding streets and museums or take the cable car across the Rhine up to the Ehrenbreitstein fortress and the city museum. We sail the gentle Moselle river upstream to Cochem.  A quaint wine town with the mighty Reichsburg castle towering over from its vine-clad summit. We sail past some of the steepest vineyards in the world to reach Zell which is a beautiful town and the perfect place to try its world-renowned "Zeller Black Cat" wine, overshadowed by its extensive vineyards. Our next port, Traben-Trabach, is truly a gem.  Hiking & cycling through the vineyards is very popular in this region of the middle Moselle as are the town’s museums. After winding upstream we reach the gorgeous twin towns of Bernkastel-Kues.  We dock on the Bernkastel side where you can explore the gorgeous cobbled lanes, shops, and wine taverns.  Kues is situated across the river and is more modern and lively but also with historical sights. We end our Moselle adventure in the old Roman city of Trier where you may wish to stay longer to learn about its Roman past or travel to Luxembourg to investigate this cosmopolitan country in the heart of Europe or fly home, taking with you some unforgettable memories.
