River cruising is a perfect way to see many of the beautiful parts of Europe, and further afield. There is minimum expense, and normally all meals and excursions are included and prepaid (in sterling) before travelling.
Stress Free Way of seeing Europe and beyond
River cruising offers the opportunity to visit interesting towns, cities and picturesque villages, as they normally stop right in the centre of towns and locations. This allows more freedom and time to explore ashore, as well as giving guests the opportunity of returning to the ship for lunch! There is time to relax and enjoy the scenery between calls, either on deck or in one of the comfortable lounges. A stress-free way of seeing Europe and beyond.
Visit Historic Cities with a vast choice of destination_blogs
Most river cruises provide access to many historic cities, using the major rivers of France (Seine, Saone and Rhone), Germany (Rhine, Mosel and Elbe) and the popular Danube, which covers Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia and Romania.Some operators also offer river cruises further afield, to the Russian Waterways, Ukraine and China.
No Fly Options
Most departures include English guides, and some are escorted throughout. Several operators now offer rail departures by Eurostar International Rail from London St Pancras International Station – ideal for those wishing to avoid air travel. Kings Cross is nearby and Euston is about 5 minutes away.
Wonderful standards and great value
River cruising is a wonderful relaxing way to tour , with no packing or unpacking, and the standards generally of the ships are very high, whether it be a more traditional vessel or one of the brand new modern ships. Food and service levels are very good and there are very few extras, if any, to pay for.
