Peaceful and scenic, river cruising offers a smooth, gentle ride along the world’s most remarkable waterways.
Supreme comfort and convenience make it the premier way to experience magnificent cities, historic villages and little-seen enclaves. Natural beauty combines with evolving views of the colorful local scenery with castles and vineyards on both sides, as if you could reach out and touch them.
Enjoy the excitement of waking up in a new town, docked just steps from markets, museums and landmarks. Ships rest close to the town center so you can easily sample local culture and favorite past times. Simply walk off the ship and into the heart of the city. Take a guided excursion or instantly blend in with daily life.
Unpack just once then settle in as each destination comes to you. With no need to navigate from place to place, you’ll find a sense of adventure and a sense of home all in one vacation.
With river vessels accommodating a mere 150 passengers, you will never wait in a long line to board or disembark. Smaller tours and intimate meal settings with open seating create a warm, personal atmosphere accentuated by five-star service. Your inclusive river cruise vacation provides incredible value. On a river cruise, your vacation’s price tag doesn’t keep adding up.
TIPS FROM OUR TRAVEL ADIVOSRS:
"I recently returned from a Christmas markets cruise of the Danube. Nothing could have prepared me for how special that experience would be. It is such a fabulous way to really immerse yourself in a culture and experience what that area of the world is like. Like a regular cruise, we experienced many new places without having to unpack, but unlike a normal cruise, the food was incredible and gourmet, plus we were able to relax and put our money away since almost everything was included! My favorite experience was in Regensburg, Germany. We sat and sipped gluwine under a Christmas tree while light snow fell, and watched a blacksmith make us a reindeer sculpture to take home while a chorus of school children sang German Christmas songs. It was incredible to see how family-centered Eastern Europe is and feel like a part of their community at the Christmas markets. Plus, we ate our body weight in sausage, schnitzel, and lebkuchen cookies!"
