Europe - Rivers Cruises
Europe has so many navigable rivers offering wonderful river cruise experiences that travellers are spoilt for choice. The Danube is the key to river cruising in Europe, as the great river crosses from Germany through Serbia, Austria and Hungary into Romania before emptying into the Black Sea. The Saone and Rhone Rivers let you explore the famed region of Burgundy, the lavender-scented hills of Provence and the wild, majestic scenery of the Ardeche region. Cruise along the Seine from Paris, through the historic 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 the fascinating city of 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 unique cultural heritage of Russia's most interesting cities, Moscow and St. Petersburg.
