Cruise the Rhine!

With WACH Council President Dr. Joyce Davis


About this Trip

Cruise along the Rhine and Moselle rivers aboard the privately chartered 45-stateroom Royal Crown riverboat from Basel to Amsterdam, exploring the region’s ancient Roman heritage and 20th-century military history.  Visit classic highlights such as Strasbourg, Mainz, and the fairytale castles of the romantic Rhine; a variety of well-preserved ancient Roman cities; and important sites from World War II, including General Patton’s famous Third Army crossing in Oppenheim and Operation Market Garden at Arnhem.  On many days, participants are invited to choose the excursion activity that best suits their interests. Some excursions explore ancient Rome’s impact on the region, featuring Augusta Raurica, an ancient Roman archaeological site and open-air museum; the Roman ruins at Trier, and Kalkreise, where the Germanic/Roman Battle of the Teutoburg Forest occurred in A.D. 9. Other excursions delve into World War II history along the Rhine and Moselle, from Arnhem’s Airborne Museum and Nijmegen’s Overloon Museum to the De Oversteek Bridge where American soldiers fought for the liberation of the Netherlands.  Throughout the cruise, enjoy exclusive educational lectures by expert speakers that deliver meaningful insights about the people and the culture you will encounter. You’ll also enjoy the camaraderie of traveling with a group and feel the thrill of making your own discoveries! An optional 2-night pre-cruise package including stunning Lake Lucerne and an optional three-night post-cruise extension in the Netherlands are also available.

From $5,990 per person plus airfare

Why Travel the World

The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia organizes all the Travel the World trips for the national association of Councils and has been doing so for over 35 years.  If you enjoy traveling on unique tours to fascinating destinations, and having access to political experts and local guides who give behind the scenes views and briefings, then you’ll quickly discover why traveling with the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia is so special.

Because of our reputation as one of the nation’s leading forums, the Council has established connections around the globe that allow us to offer members access that they can’t get when traveling alone or on other tours.  Council leaders are drawn from across the World Affairs Councils of America leadership; from the fields of diplomacy, journalism, or academia accompany some tours as lecturers thereby providing added value to the experience.   We offer tours on all continents, both land tours and small-ship cruises.  Our new program line-up includes our substance rich Seminar Series, shorter itineraries focusing on foreign policy issues in key destinations.  For a trip of a lifetime, check out our private jet trips!

Council President Dr. Joyce M. Davis recently led a World Affairs Councils of America’s tour of the Languedoc region of France.
