Get a “Taste of Europe” and sample some of Western Europe’s best-loved areas, including England, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, and France. You’ll visit the main cities—London, great for shopping, museums, and its cosmopolitan flair, but also Amsterdam, Lucerne, and Paris—and you’ll also behold fascinating scenery and cruise scenic waterways. In Amsterdam, hear about its 165 canals with a total length of 100 kms (62 miles). As such an integral part of the city, you’ll enjoy a canal cruise to appreciate Amsterdam from the waterways. Experience the wonder of a cruise on the Rhine—with its scenic countryside, historical castles, and charming villages. See the Lorelei rock and hear its legend about a distraught maiden who sat on the rock combing her long golden hair and luring passing navigators to their death. Dip into the Swiss Alps and discover Lucerne with its iconic Chapel Bridge. And finally, experience the “grandeur” of Paris and its special atmosphere. Breakfast is included daily, and most days, you’ll have the opportunity to venture out and try local cuisine. Sample a pint of bitter in a local British pub, savor French wines in the Parisian cafés, and taste the local beer in Germany.
