A river cruise offers the traveler a chance to experience a variety of cultures and cities at a comfortable, tranquil pace. An intimate river cruise provides travelers with a relaxed atmosphere with an optional itinerary. Imagine planning a traditional vacation throughout Europe: booking flights, hotels, car rentals, activities, and restaurants - figuring in unplanned incidentals for each country you visit. Anyone would need a vacation after that! Now, imagine departing Paris by ship and spending the next eight days traveling four countries and 12 amazing cities and only unpacking once! Explore the local shops and cuisine while soaking up as much or as little local flavor as you like. That would be a relaxing holiday! Below are our guests' top ten reasons to experience a river cruise.
