Why Choose River Cruising?

See the World’s Great Cities

Paris, Vienna, Budapest, St. Petersburg…because so many cities and towns developed along waterways, they were literally made to be accessible by river. Sail directly to the heart of many destinations and walk right off of your river cruise ship into the center of town.

Travel With Ease

After boarding the ship, you'll unpack just once for a relaxing stay in your spacious stateroom. Enjoy comfort for the duration of the cruise. And because the rivers offer smooth sailing, the likelihood of motion sickness lessens.

A More Intimate Experience

Many river cruise ships accommodate less than 300 people, making this a great trip to meet new people and make friends for a lifetime. And there is no waiting in long lines to embark, disembark or have a meal.

New Scenery Throughout Your Entire Journey

Fairytale palaces, towering gorges carved through millennia, tiny villages nestled in the still preserved beauty of the landscape—enjoy breathtaking scenery that’s constantly changing through panoramic windows in the restaurant and lounge and stunning 360° views from the sun deck.

Culture & History

Stroll through an open air architecture museum in the middle of a Russian lake; watch the artists at work in a Meissenware studio; listen to a concert of ancient bronze bells in Wuhan. You are unlikely to reach these places any other way.

Travel Your Way

Join the guided walks and in-depth excursions planned for you in each destination—or sightsee on your own if you prefer. The choice is yours.
