YOUR EXPERIENCE

Cruise the Rhine River with the women of Olivia, starting in the extremely LGBTQ-friendly city of Amsterdam and ending in delightful Basel. Unpack once, and your Riverboat becomes your home. What better way to explore charming Holland, Germany, France and Switzerland than on an elegant riverboat? Stroll along the canals learning about Amsterdam’s amazing history, view fields of vividly colored tulips in bloom, experience castles on the Rhine, and enjoy the fabled Black Forest, where cuckoo clocks are made. Included walking or city tours in each port ensure you see the best of the best as you immerse yourself in the rich local cultures. Pastries, cheese, and chocolate will be treats for the taste buds along the way!

PLEASE NOTE: These trips do require a level of mobility, as most of the tours are walking tours for up to 3 hours, which may include walking on cobblestone streets and stairs. A “Gentle Walkers” Group is included on most included walking tours, which accommodates those needing a little extra time and sometimes a shortened version of a tour, keeping in mind as few stairs as possible. If you are bringing a portable wheel chair or collapsible travel scooter, they must be able to collapse and be stored in your cabin. They cannot be used to get around the ship, only to use while off the ship. They may be used on tours that are accessible, but that can be difficult because of the cobblestone streets, stairwells and need to lift them up on curbs. If you do have limited mobility, you are required to travel with someone who can assist you to lift the scooters down the gangways, up and down curbs, and up and down stairs.
