THE DEAL: Grand Circle Cruise Line is offering a 14-night Rhine and Mosel river cruise onboard a Grand Circle river ship, sailing from Antwerp, Belgium to Basel, Switzerland on various dates from September to November, 2013. Prices start from $2,695 per person for an outside cabin, including roundtrip airfare from most major U.S. cities. Wine, excursions and more are included in your fare.
WHAT WE LOVE: Included roundtrip airfare and excursions allow you to focus your mind, not your wallet, on two weeks sailing two rivers through five enchanting European countries this fall. The focus on culture and country is evident in Grand Circle’s enrichment series and city tours. See the windmills of the Netherlands, a historic German castle and the standing sites of ancient cities such as Speyer. This deal is a great value, saving up to $2,800 per couple.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: This promotion is only valid during a short window — from August 1 to 19 — and for limited departures, meaning that spots will be filling up. Free airfare only applies to 22 departures, so if your city is not listed, you may not benefit from the full savings.
