Cruising the Elbe River


KD German Rhine Line is building two new ships for cruises on the Elbe River, formerly the border between East and West Germany. The ships will be operated by a new company, KD Elbe River Cruises, and are scheduled to begin service in May with four itineraries and 70 sailing dates through mid-October.

Seven-day cruises will go both ways on the Elbe between Lauenburg, near Hamburg, and the spa town of Bad Schandau, a distance of 375 miles. The ships, each carrying up to 128 passengers, will spend each night in a different port.

Fares will range from $1,275 to $1,510 for seven-day trips, $850 to $995 for five-day trips. Information: KD German Rhine Line, Suite 317, 170 Hamilton Ave., White Plains, N.Y. 10601; telephone (800) 346-6525.
