WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER A EUROPEAN RIVER CRUISE
Updated: Nov 18, 2020
If European river cruising had a motto, it would be “go with the flow.” This laid back style of travel takes you through some of the most idyllic destinations in Europe. Luxurious amenities, gourmet dining, diverse itineraries, and panoramic views of the European countryside are just a few of the reasons to love river cruising.
Each major European river provides travelers with a unique experience. I’ve highlighted my favorite rivers below to help you decide which river cruise is right for you.
The Danube River is the soul of central Europe. Flowing through countries like Germany, Austria, and Hungary, the Danube River allows you to discover Europe’s dramatic history and rich culture. Visit Vienna’s glittering Christmas markets during the holidays or take a tour of the sprawling Hungarian Parliament building in Budapest when you cruise down the Danube River.
Explore storybook castles, charming towns, and iconic landmarks when you cruise down the Rhine River. As you travel through Switzerland, Austria, France, Germany, The Netherlands, and beyond, you will see the landscape transform before your eyes. Gothic cities giveaway to sprawling vineyards that produce award-winning Riesling followed by endless fields of tulips dotted with historic windmills.
The Seine River is the heart and soul of France. This majestic river flows right through Paris, The City of Lights, and has long been a staple in the French culture. Just over 400 miles long, the Seine passes through some of the country’s most historic and picturesque towns. Begin your journey in the Medieval city of Rouen with stops in Vernon and Versaille before ending your journey in Paris.
One of the best-kept secrets in European river cruising is the Douro River. Flowing across Northern Spain into Portugal, the Douro River cuts through the romantic countryside. The Douro Valley in Portugal is one of the most famous wine regions in the world. The grapes grown on the banks of the river have been producing legendary port wines for centuries. As a river cruise passenger, you’ll have unparalleled access to some of the area’s most famous vineyards.
