River Cruising

Main Cruise PageRiver cruises sail the larger rivers of Europe, Asia, Egypt, and the Americas. This can be a convenient way to see classic cities that were built along these famous rivers that link them. You unpack once and enjoy the historic splendor as it passes just outside your stateroom. Enjoy fine dining and luxury amenities onboard as you socialize and prepare for your daily excursions into large cities and small villages along these great waterways.

What makes a river cruise so different from an ocean cruise is the emphasis on the places visited. Instead of only spending half your trip visiting port locations, a river cruise allows for daily stops along the river with excursions and site seeing trips. This allows you to enjoy more of the countryside and culture and less time entertaining yourself on the ship. With this focus, it's nice that river itineraries in Europe feature a diverse mix of sophisticated metropolises -- such as Vienna, Paris, Amsterdam and Budapest -- and picturesque villages.

Some of these lines offer cuisine, d├ęcor and service that rivals the luxury cruise ships. Others offer more basic amenities. River cruises are an excellent way to experience the environmental wonders of nature while relaxing in the comforts of a luxury stateroom. We recommend the best river cruise fleets available for all the great rivers on each continent. Europe's historic rivers are always a popular choice and Viking, Avalon, and Tauck all have excellent ships, cuisine and service.
