2015 – Grand European River Cruise: Rhine Valley to the Black Sea

Cruise Map40 days and 40 nights – a Grand European Holiday!

I will fill out the posts and add links below on this page as I go.

I will be on this trip from June 8th-July 11th. Once I arrive in Europe, I have 3 days in Amsterdam before the River Cruise, 26 days cruising from Bonn to Bucharest, along the Danube, Main, Rhine River Valleys. Following the cruise, I have 4 nights in Roumania, which will be the end of my Vantage excursion.

Instead of coming right home, though, I am going to spend a week in Munich.
