Explore the Rivers
Compared with an ocean cruise, travelling by inland waterways offers a much more intimate and in-depth perspective on your destination. River cruises get you to closer to places including such cities as Vienna and Budapest. Cruises on the Danube and Rhine continue to be the most sought after, however there are many other rivers to explore.
Popular destinations include Russia's Volga, China's Yangtze, the Mekong and France just to name a few.
With shore side arrivals, you can walk to markets, shops and cafes or participate in the organized tours. Why not take out a bike and explore on your own, or hike in the countryside or sit in a cafe and absorb the local culture. River cruise journeys provide unforgettable and in-depth experiences for people of all ages, and are an exceptional way to introduce travellers to Europe’s most spectacular destinations.
To truly discover the nature of a land and its people, there’s no better means than traveling by river.
