Assuming a negative Covid-19 test 48 hours (PCR) or 24 hours (Antigen) before boarding KLM on Saturday night, I will be cruising October 4-14, 2021 on Crystal Debussy. On this page, you’ll find a feed of my Instagram posts, updated every day during my cruise. Be sure to also follow my live stories on @avidcruiser. Coverage begins today as I prepare for my trip to Amsterdam.
The itinerary is dreamy. I did a similar run on Crystal Bach two years ago. That cruise was so enjoyable that I came back home and asked Crystal if I could host a cruise, inviting River Cruise Advisor readers at a special rate. Nearly three dozen people signed up, but our group dwindled as Delta surged throughout the United States. Seven of us will be carrying the flat on this cruise.
Our cruise begins with an overnight in Amsterdam, followed by visits to Dusseldorf, Koblenz, Bernkastel, Trier, Cochem, Bonn, Arnhem before returning to the Dutch capital. While the Rhine is enjoyable, the Moselle is stunning, and about half of our 11 days on board will be on the Rhine.
