Christmas and New Yearscruise

You will celebrate the festive season in style during this cruise aboard the luxury ship Antonio Bellucci. Christmas and New Year will be celebrated in a very unusual and festive ambiance. The excellent service on board and the culinary skills of the chef de cuisine will ensure an unforgettable experience.

Sunday 23 December: Arnhem

Boarding will take place between 19:00 and 21:00 in Arnhem. The musician will provide a convivial atmosphere on board this evening and for the rest of the trip. We will remain moored in Arnhem for the night.

Monday 24 December: Arnhem - Düsseldorf

We will weigh anchor very early and head towards our first destination, Düsseldorf. The brightly lit streets in the Altstadt (Old Town) complete the Christmas scene. It is Christmas Eve and if you wish you can attend mass in the nearby church. Later in the evening you can enjoy a midnight buffet on board. Merry Christmas!

Tuesday 25 December: Düsseldorf - Cologne

After a Christmas breakfast we continue our journey towards Cologne. Of course a visit to the imposing Cologne Dom (Cathedral) should not be missed. At the end of the afternoon there will be a Christmas aperitif in the stylish lounge. The chef de cuisine has pulled out all the culinary stops to provide a wonderful Christmas dinner. It would be very much appreciated if you dress up in your party clothes for this special evening.

Wednesday 26 December: Cologne - Bonn

The morning begins with a wonderful champagne brunch. Meanwhile we sail towards Bonn. There are various monuments to be seen in the centre of this stately city. The central market place is dominated by the Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall) painted in pastel shades. High Tea will be served on board in the middle of the afternoon.

Thursday 27 December: Bonn - Coblenz

After lunch we will moor in Coblenz. You can explore the lively centre all afternoon or take the cable car up to the Ehrenbreitstein fortress. From this vantage point you have wonderful views not only of Coblenz but also of the Rhine and Moselle.

Friday 28 December: Coblenz - Mainz

Today we will sail through the romantic part of the Rhine. You will have wonderful views of the various castles and fortresses from the ship. We will also pass by the famous Lorelei. In the middle of the afternoon we will arrive in Mainz. This city on the Rhine has a historic centre with many monuments including the Dom (Cathedral) and many examples of Baroque architecture.

Saturday 29 December: Mainz - Boppard

Sailing downstream we once again pass the Lorelei where at the beginning of the afternoon we will moor in the wine town of Boppard. The promenade beside the water will take you right into the small but charming centre.

Sunday 30 December: Boppard - Andernach

We leave Boppard in the morning and will soon be sailing past Coblenz. The statue of Emperor William I stands on the Deutsche Eck, the point where the Moselle and the Rhine converge. Then it’s only a short sail to Andernach. This was once one of the fifty fortified towns along the Rhine. You will find remains of this period behind the sturdy city walls.

Monday 31 December: Andernach - Cologne

We arrive in Cologne in time to give you the opportunity to walk down the long shopping streets behind the Dom. The shops will close early in the afternoon and everyone will get ready for an enjoyable New Year’s Eve. Tonight we will serve a wonderful gala dinner. The musician will ensure a lovely evening while you enjoy delicious amuses. At midnight we’ll pop the champagne corks and wish everyone a happy and healthy 2019! With the Dom in the background, lit by fireworks, this is a new year you won’t forget quickly.

Tuesday 1 January: Cologne - Düsseldorf

You can take things easy on the first day of the new year. A delicious champagne brunch awaits you in the restaurant which means you can enjoy a restful night for a little bit longer. Then we sail gently towards Düsseldorf. You can take a refreshing walk along the Rhine promenade or through the Altstadt!

Antonio Bellucci

As soon as you enter the ship with its spacious reception and beautiful balustrade, you will realise you are on an exceptional vessel. From here you can walk into the stylish lounge which is fitted with a glass atrium roof and large panorama windows. This is the ideal place to admire the passing countryside. It has a central bar that you can sit around. You reach the forward deck via the lounge, and from here you can go up to the sundeck but you can also enjoy the views from this wonderful spot. The chique restaurant located at the front of the Da Vinci deck has large panorama windows so you won’t miss anything of the beautiful landscape views during your meal. You can relax in one of the comfortable seats or deckchairs on the sun deck or enjoy the whirlpool that is located at the end of the deck. The chairs and tables in front of the bridge are unique. You can remain there and enjoy them even when the ship sails under low bridges. Naturally this ship has a sauna and fitness room on board. You will find them on the Caravaggio deck. For the early risers who don’t want to miss seeing the mist-enshrouded mornings we offer ‘early birds coffee’ in the Captain’s Corner on the Bellucci deck.
