Saga’s first river cruise for solo travellers will set sail on 14 October for seven nights along the River Rhine.
The Saga-exclusive ‘Autumn Colours of the Rhine’ cruise starts in Bonn, Germany, with coach travel from Folkestone via Eurotunnel.
MS Arlene moors overnight in Bonn where guests will enjoy a welcome cocktail party to get to know other passengers, the Saga cruise director and Solos host.
In the morning, an optional walking tour will include a visit to Beethoven’s former home, now a museum dedicated to his life and work. Further highlights include the Electoral Palace with its elegant Hofgarten and baroque City Hall.
The cruise continues to Koblenz, where the rivers Rhine and Moselle meet. The confluence is marked by a monument to Emperor Wilhelm I and there is an optional tour to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress.
The cruise aboard MS Arlene, with a maximum of 52 passengers, will conclude in Arnhem.
The river cruise includes all meals, plus wine, beer and soft drinks with three-course lunches and four-course dinners.
