river cruises in europe

River Cruising has become one of the most popular travel options for guests who are ready for a casual experience in a relaxed atmosphere on a small vessel exploring the waterways of the world.

No need to pack and unpack with bags outside the door at 6:00 a.m. in order to board a tour bus to the next village. Get up close and personal with famous destinations in Europe and China with river cruises. Enjoy the great food and service on board your "floating hotel" on Nile River cruises —and take advantage of the wonderful educators on board who provide excellent information along the way — detailing the rich history of the villages and countryside as your boat travels along the waterways.

Stroll the cobblestone streets, marvel at the culture of life in the villages that can be enjoyed each day as your riverboat travels the famous rivers of the world, especially river cruises in Europe. Feast on wonderful meals, all included of course, and relax with the great service provided by the staff. Visit the famous Christmas Markets along the Rhine or Danube Rivers on small Europe river cruises or tour the wineries of the French countryside — marvel at the sites in Russia, experience the magnificent windmills and tulips of Holland — or sample the beauty of China.

*Tours are included* — depending on the particular itinerary, and the vessel itself — all-inclusive tours with admission fees paid to museums, concerts, gardens, operas, etc. vary — we will advise you on those, based on your particular selections. Optional tours are available for additional fees with many vessels:

  • Both Pre-cruise and Post-Cruise packages are also available with many sailings.

  • Wine is included with dinner on many vessels.

  • Great entertainment is included both on the boat and occasionally in a particular port. Depending on the particular boat or company, some venues such as concerts or operas are included, others require additional fees.

  • Boats usually dock right in the heart of the city — making the vessel easily accessible for independent exploring without the necessity of a bus or taxi to the main destination.

  • We recommend only those vessels who cater to the North American market, and therefore provide all English speaking tour guides, educators, and staff on board the vessel.

  • Most all vessels are non-smoking except for designated areas on the open top deck.

  • Unfortunately, it isn't for the physically challenged. There are no Handicap Facilities on board. — nor any elevators on most River Boats.

  • Walking tours are part of every itinerary — and there are many stairs to climb — and cobblestone streets to navigate. Occasionally, there will be several boats moored alongside each other necessitating the passing through another vessel (even navigating their deck or stairways as well) in order to reach the shore.

  • Limited medical facilities — sometimes none — are provided on board, however, with a port everyday — and easy accessibility to a land-based physician or hospital, emergency situations can usually be accommodated quickly. Those with known medical conditions might wish to consider other tour options.

  • While families are accommodated on most all vessels — rarely ever will you find a cabin that will accommodate more than two guests — requiring two cabins for a family of three or four. There are no children's programs or activities, and occasionally, some tours are not appropriate for small children.

  • Cabins range from very small on some ships and itineraries to quite ample on others. Some ships feature ceiling to floor windows, and even have French Balconies. All cabins have private baths.

  • Most vessels carry approximately 100 guests — some accommodate up to 150.

  • Dress is casual — keeping in mind the cultural standards for dress in foreign countries.
