Lovers of wine, food and culture are invited on an exclusive voyage of discovery into the finer things of life on the elegant River Cloud II with the arrival of “Golden October”.
Wine tasting, gourmet food and beautiful scenery will abound as guests immerse themselves in the wine making regions of Alsace, Baden and the Rhine and witness the vineyards at their best as they transform into stunning autumnal shades marking the last harvest of grapes for the season.
The 88-guest yacht will meander along the Moselle and Rhine departing 27 October from Trier, one of Germany’s oldest cities, before arriving into Basel, Switzerland on 03 November. A feast for the senses, this voyage will visit charming cities such as Strasbourg, Heidelberg and Comar and also offers guests the use of the ship’s bicycles to explore the charming villages and countryside along the way.
Passengers on the River Cloud II will also be introduced to numerous wines of the Old and New World by the two Masters of Wine accompanying the voyage, both on board and on land with the opportunity to sample the best of each region including Riesling, Gewurztraminer and the increasingly popular Pinot Noir.
After fascinating days exploring, guests will return to the intimate yacht to indulge in the exquisite on-board service, luxury accommodation and fine dining.
Fully inclusive fares for the 7 night cruise and return international airfares with Emirates start from AUD$7,990 per person, double occupancy. Sea Cloud Cruises fares include all meals, from early breakfast to the exquisite four-course dinner menu and five course gala dinners, and drinks including carefully selected wines and beers, and a welcoming bottle of Champagne in each cabin.
An additional highlight is the opportunity to partake in pre and post tours of the famous Champagne or Burgundy regions of France. Each region boasts its own speciality, whether Champagne or fine wines, and each three night/four day program will explore and celebrate the finest that these two iconic regions have to offer. Prices lead in at AUD$1990 per person and include accommodation in deluxe small luxury hotels.
