The holiday begins in Basel, in northwest Switzerland, where you'll spend two nights at the ibis Styles Basel City. It's a 20-minute walk from the city centre, where key sights include Basel Minster, the city's cathedral.
You'll then embark Braemar and cruise to Strasbourg, the capital of France's delightful Alsace region. While there, why not try one of the region's specialities, tarte flambée?
You'll continue to Speyer, which is home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site cathedral, then the beautiful 2000-year-old city of Koblenz, where the Moselle meets the Rhine. You can take the cable car up to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, which houses several museums, or relax with a glass of riesling in one of the bars.
Next you'll sail to charming Cochem in the Moselle Valley, and then sail through the Passage of Bonn to Cologne. One of Germany's oldest cities, it has ancient Roman walls and a 13th-century cathedral.
The cruise ends in Düsseldorf, where you'll catch your flight home.
Brabant, the first boat in the Fred. Olsen River Cruises' fleet, carries 156 passengers and has a restaurant, two bars, a sun deck, a fitness room and a hot tub. In the evenings, singers or pianists perform in the main bar.
Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the boat. There are also bikes that you can borrow to use on shore.
