Cruising is not all about the seas and ocean – some of the most beautiful cities in the world are built on the banks of the greatest rivers.

River cruises offer a unique way to explore the continent’s cities, countryside, and cultural landmarks along the rivers of Europe. These cruises provide a comfortable and convenient way to travel, with amenities like fine dining, entertainment, free wifi and spacious cabins.

Popular rivers for cruising include the Rhine, Danube, and Seine, and popular destinations include cities like Amsterdam, Budapest, and Paris. European river cruises are suitable for a variety of travellers, including families, couples, and solo travellers, and offer a mix of guided tours and free time for personal exploration.

There are also several less well-known rivers in Europe that offer unique and scenic river cruising experiences. These includes:

The Moselle River winds its way through Germany, Luxembourg, and France, offering stunning views of rolling hills, vineyards, and medieval castles.

The Douro River runs through Portugal and Spain and is known for its terraced vineyards, historic villages, and vibrant cities like Porto and Salamanca.

The Elbe River flows through Germany and the Czech Republic, offering opportunities to explore cities like Berlin, Dresden, and Prague.

These lesser-known rivers offer a more intimate and off-the-beaten-path cruising experience.
