Grand Voyage on the Danube aboard Crystal Ravel - FULL

Join a group of eminent speakers featuring Doris Kearns Goodwin, world-renowned presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author; Sylvia Poggioli, award-winning correspondent for National Public Radio; former U.S. ambassadors Peter Galbraith and Steven Pifer; and other remarkable thinkers and leaders, all of whom will provide insight and perspective to an examination of the relationship between Europe and the United States as it continues to evolve. In the company of true authorities, as well as travelers from the Commonwealth Club of California, Harvard Alumni Travels, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Stanford Travel/Study, the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, and Yale Alumni Academy, you are sure to have the most extraordinary experience. Aboard the all-suite Crystal Ravel, exclusively chartered for our group of 93 discerning guests, cruise one of europe’s loveliest and most interesting waterways, enjoying the amenities and fine service of one of the highest-rated luxury ships afloat. Ashore, unique touches such as behind-the-scenes access to key sites and privately arranged events will enhance your experience. In Berlin, stay in 5-star accommodations—perfectly located in the heart of the city—before a charter flight to Bavaria to begin the cruise. This voyage is a rare opportunity to see and learn more about this historically rich region than most programs offer.
