“rhine and christmas markets”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

3 rd Rhine cruise for us and best yet ! On board MV princes Christina for 3 nights. The boat is comfortable, food plentiful and staff friendly and very helpful. There was plenty of time to do Christmas markets and towns. The boat docked 2 pm fish and we were free from then till start of sail at 5.30 am if we wished. We booked through Caledonian Travel and wouldn't hesitate to do so again

“Awesome Panaromic scenery”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

beautiful. Glad to take the boat and went around the Rhine Valley. Took a lot of pics. Love the little towns. I regret I didn't buy the cuckoo clock in one of these souvenir stores :) Instead I bought a little house which tells you the temperature. When it is hot, the woman comes out. When it is cold, the man comes out. I also bought chocolate cigars from one of the chocolate stores.

i like the history behind the cat and mouse castle :) You can find a more detail historic description in You Tube.

“Great relaxing Holiday”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Recently travelled with the coach firm Leger Holidays for a Rhine and Mosel River Cruise aboard Princess Christina.
Brilliant relaxing holiday.
The journey to Cologne was a bit of a trek but well worth it once we arrived.
By comparrison to some of the other river cruisers our ship was only small with about fifty cabins, we had a cabin on the Prominade Deck, which was absolutely fine, worth paying the extra few quid for. Cabin was spotless and cleaned every day food was good and of course the german beer on draft was excellent and not a bad price.
Visited lots of nice places and it was Octoberfest the week we were there so lots to see and do.
Most of the staff on board were Slovakian and they were brilliant, couldnt do enough for us.
if you are looking for a relaxing week I can recommend this type of break, just sitting on deck in the sun with beer in hand watching the world and castles go by, heaven.
Well done Leger and well done Princess Christina.

“Beautiful trip, amazing landscape”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

It is a place that requires some time to see the many castles and how the river flows through the valley. If you do it by car or bike you will probably stop many times to fully enjoy the view.
We went during the month of December, but it was not snowy. The disadvantages for December are, no regular cruises by the river, the landscape is not so green, and there are not so many sunlight hours.
