\Fourteen glorious days sailing onboard the Grand River Countess – one of the ships voted in the 2007 Conde Nast Poll for Best Small Ship. The Grand River Countess’s European Discovery itinerary sails the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers through Switzerland, France, Germany and Austria.

Port stops – to name just a few – include Strasbourg with its fairytale-like Petite France; Aschaffenburg, once deemed the “Bavarian Nice” owing to its Mediterranean flair; the architectural gem of Bamberg with its Renaissance palaces, Baroque homes and breathtaking cathedral; enchanting Nuremberg with its Medieval Kaiserburg Castle and central market with its beautiful fountain; Melk with its Baroque abbey perched high above the vineyard-rich Wachau Valley; and Vienna, the cosmopolitan “City of Waltzes.”

Onboard the luxurious River Countess, enjoy an intimate and elegant setting with outside facing staterooms lavishly appointed with the finest amenities including hotel-style beds; 100% Egyptian combed cotton linens; and private bathrooms replete with thick towels, plush robes and aromatherapy bath amenities. Take pleasure dining on sumptuous cuisine prepared by dedicated chefs and delight in the individualized attentive service of an all English-speaking staff.
