European River cruising is magical. It’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced… you’ll say goodbye to your standard routine and say hello to exploring villages, outdoor activities, fine dining and relaxation.
When you’re not exploring a town or village, you’ll be enjoying the many amenities offered on the ship, as well as breathtaking views from the Sun Deck. Since river cruises carry a smaller number of passengers on board (about 140 passengers!), you’ll have more time to enjoy the amenities in a more personal way.
Our goal is to match you with the right river cruise for you. There are many cruise lines all offering different levels of service and inclusions. We promise our process will perfectly match you to the experience that is right for you.
Interested in what a typical day may look like on your river cruise? These are some of the amenities offered for you to take advantage of throughout the cruise...
FITNESS CENTER & CLASSES
Each ship offers a fitness center to help you stay active between excursions. And if the treadmill isn’t your preference, there is also a professionally trained Wellness Host offering daily classes. Start your day with a yoga session on the Sun Deck, a spin class on the back of the ship, or a light stretch class, and set the tone for a relaxing day.
AWARD WINNING MEALS
Enjoy coffee and a breakfast buffet each morning, lunch and refreshments throughout the day and exquisite meals prepared with locally sourced ingredients for dinner. Unlimited wine, beer, and soft drinks are also offered with each meal and some cruise lines offer unlimited drinks all day!
SALON & SPA
No vacation is complete without a bit of pampering. The spa on board offers massages throughout the day so you can relax on your own schedule. With fewer guests on board you won’t have to fight for an appointment.
Feel like going out for the evening while we’re in port? Let the stylists at the salon give you a new look or simply help you look and feel your best before heading out.
You may not choose a tropical cruise, but that doesn’t mean you can’t relax and enjoy the sun on the top deck! Ships have a heated pool (some with a swim-up bar for optimal enjoyment) or a jacuzzi, perfect for relaxing any tired muscles while cruising past the graceful, castle-filled countryside of Europe.
Feel free to come back out when the sun goes down. As you cruise past larger cities, the views of bridges full of lights or cathedrals lit up under the stars are extraordinary.
This is the perfect atmosphere to socialize with your party and other guests. Many cruisers have truly built long-distance and lasting friendships and even return time and time again to cruise with people they met on previous sailings!
Regardless of which cruise itinerary you choose, you'll have a variety of excursions to choose from. Activity levels vary to suit your preferences for the day and bikes are available on the ship for you to take into town. There is even a tour option for "late risers".
During some stops, you may prefer a mild hike; on others, a bike tour, wine tastings or touring a brew pub. Alternatively, you may wish to take on some free time with your family and explore the city on your own.
