Image the serene pace of a river cruise gliding from one port to another on a flat bottomed vessel. On most itineraries, travelers go to bed in the evening and wake up to the next town. Stroll one hundred feet to a sumptuous breakfast and only unpack one time. With each bend and turn the river takes, the scenery changes before you. Enjoy those landscape changes from your cabin with its full length windows or doors, any of the panoramic public areas, or even the boat’s top sun deck. Have a glass of wine or read a book as the world goes by. Travelers often wonder how many castles are there along the Danube and Rhine Rivers anyway?
River excursions allow travelers to immerse themselves in the local culture and some cruise lines even include the excursions in the price. The towns are usually small, the boat docks are in the center of town, and there are only 150 to 300 passengers on the boat. Many of these important cities and towns were developed many years ago the waterways, making river cruising very accessible. Travelers get to explore places you don’t see on a large cruise ship or a land tour. No riding those huge motor coaches or long train rides.
The gourmet cuisine onboard takes on a local favor from the skilled chefs and wine is normally included with dinner. And why not, you are cruising through places where the finest wines are produced!
