Europe has so many navigable rivers that travellers are spoilt for choice. The Danube is the key to river cruising in Europe, crossing from Germany through Serbia, Austria and Hungary into Romania to reach the Black Sea. The Saone and Rhone Rivers let you explore the famed regions of Burgundy and Provence and the majestic scenery of the Ardeche region. Cruise the Seine from Paris through the heart of Normandy to the beaches of the Atlantic Coast. The Rhine is one of Europe’s major arteries. It flows into the North Sea from its beginnings in the Alps, through Switzerland, Germany, France and Holland. The beautiful Douro rises in the hills north of Madrid and meanders through northern Portugal to Porto, and on to the Atlantic. Most cruises are round trips from Porto. The Volga river in Russia allows you to discover the stunning architecture and culture of Moscow and St. Petersburg.

River craft of APT Amadeus Waterways, Avalon Waterways, Viking, Scenic and Uniworld service all of Europe’s rivers and canals, and come with integrated land tours to major cities. River cruises start at 7 nights, and range up to 24 nights. Cruises may follow seasonal themes (think wine and tulips) or year-round themes (music and culinary). Russian rivers are inaccessible in the northern winter.

First, select your region or river ports of choice, and also the start and end cities. Do you want to plan a pre- or post- tour of your own, or one provided by the cruise company? For each Line, on each stretch of river/s, they will have a number of identical ships, so the name of the ship is irrelevant. A Line’s newest ships may offer a few extra facilities. Be prepared for itineraries to alter day by day depending on weather conditions that are unforeseeable. With intense competition, weigh up which cruise company gives what you consider the best value for money along with the river ports that appeal. Read about each port to help make a selection. Don’t forget to add on extras, such as tips for land tour guides and spending money, even though most river cruises quote all-inclusive fares. Plan to arrive at your embarkation port a day early.
