the wine was great, ask Jenni
The scenery along this part of the Rhine and the Mosel river were magnificent and covered in vineyards on both sides. Most of the wines on board came from the Mosel region and were excellent. We finally started to see the sunshine on Wednesday and got a little bit of a tan as we had largely been hit with thunderstorms and rain.

Having three meals a day served to you, each time with a minimum of three courses and most times four, tends to reek havoc on the waistline! Not much room to exercise on the boat but we did quite a bit of walking whenever we got off the boat. In both Cochem and Rudesheim we chose to do our own thing in both of these cities and had a great time exploring with Klause and Elizabeth and spent a few euro here.
