December 15, 2023 (Friday) - Rothenburg ob der Tauber City Tour / Group Dinner(Nuremberg)
· Rothenburg ob der Tauber needs no introduction. The city is famous for being picturesque. The architecture in the Old Town consists predominantly of medieval stone or half-timbered buildings, creating a coherent and quaint atmosphere rarely found elsewhere. Centuries have proven that the houses, towers, walls, churches, fountains and statues were constructed by skilled craftsmen. Countless details can be found everywhere – good examples are the “Auslegerschilder”, medieval-style metal signs hanging in front of the stores, indicating the type of business. Additionally, the garden boxes in every window with flowers blooming literally everywhere add wonderful colors to the scenery. Europeans might be more used to this, but even they are regularly amazed. For an American, it is like stepping into a movie, except that it is all real. This is not a replica of a medieval town – it really is one. We regularly hear people commenting about how amazing it is that people are actually living here in this fairytale place. · We'll have a guided tour of the city before enjoying a few hours of free time. · We'll have a farewell dinner at a restaurant in Nuremberg.

Are you traveling alone and in need of a roommate?

One of the exclusive benefits of traveling with is that we will match you with a roommate to make your trip more pleasurable and affordable. Our team aims to match you with a roommate of the same gender and age range and we encourage all single travelers to take advantage of this complimentary service.

When making your online reservation, simply choose “double” when you select your cabin, and then choose “yes” on the next page when we ask if you would like to take advantage of our roommate matching service. Not only does sharing a cabin allow you to meet a new travel companion in our group right away, but it also saves you money on the double occupancy cabin rate. Many of the roommates we pair up end up being great friends.

Please note: Our roommate matching service is subject to availability at the time of your reservation. We will aim to match ages as close as possible. Our roommate matching is strictly for non-smokers—this is for the comfort of all our roommate matches, and it relies on the honor system at booking and common courtesy while onboard. Even if you don’t consider yourself a regular smoker, if you do choose to smoke during the cruise, then you will not have the option of using our roommate matching on any future cruises.
