Other highlights include a guided walking tour through Riquewihr, France, known for its historical architecture and Riesling wines; a hands-on French patisserie class in Strasbourg, France; a Heineken Brewery factory tour; and a private workshop on how to blend craft cocktails in Amsterdam.
Dates: Oct. 21-28
Price: From $4,719 per person, double occupancy. Includes accommodations, all food and beverages, local beer and wine with meals, all daily excursions and onboard entertainment, gratuities for guides and cruise staff, transfers and more. International airfare not included.
