A Luxury Experience
River cruising is the best way to experience Europe’s interior up close and comfortable. River cruising is like having your own floating luxury hotel take you to some of the most fascinating of Europe’s capitals, to fabled towns and charming villages. And while under way you can sit comfortably on deck and watch castles, wineyards and fairytale landscapes pass by.
River cruising is without a doubt the best way to see interior Europe. The included guided tours will take you on an exploration of the history and culture of the places you visit. Or you can of course choose to just walk around on your own.
Viking River Cruises is by far the most popular river cruise line, with elegant new “longships”. AmaWaterways is a modern luxury style cruise line, and Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is like traveling in one of the luxury palaces you will visit.
The most sought after cruise is the Grand Tour, a two week journey along both the Rhine and Danube rivers. You will find river cruises along a number of Europe’s rivers – Danube, Main, Seine, Rhone, Rhine, Elbe and others. Many river cruises will have optional pre and post extensions in places such as Paris, Prague, Berlin, Budapest, Lucerne, the Loire Valley, the French Riviera.
