About Europe River Cruises
An extensive selection of deals on river cruises in Europe. Choose from itineraries that sail the Danube, Elbe, Rhine, Rhône, Seine, and other famous European waterwaysRiver cruising in Europe is the easiest and most affordable way to see everything that the Old World has to offer. A European river cruise puts you right at the heart of the continent's cosmopolitan cities and quaint villages: step off your ship and you're instantly surrounded by the magnificent architecture, museum masterworks, and colorful contemporary culture that make traveling to Europe so popular.
Prominent points of interest along the Danube include Austria's picturesque Wachau Valley, home to ancient monasteries and rolling vineyards, and the Iron Gates gorge, which serves as part of the boundary between Romania and Serbia.
Travelers should expect to encounter a wide range of landscapes while cruising the Douro: the high plains of central Spain and the protected biodiversity of Castile and León's Arribes del Duero Natural Park; the narrow canyons and steep ravines that form a portion of the borderline between Spain and Portugal, and the vineyards of Portugal's Douro Valley, producers of the world's finest port wines.
Over 1,300 miles of inland waterways are available to cruisers interested in exploring such major Dutch destinations as Amsterdam (the Netherlands' capital city), Rotterdam (informally regarded as "the Gateway to Europe"), and Maastricht (birthplace of the European Union), while Belgium's closely knit collection of waterways (including the Muese and the Scheldt) provides passengers with access to the banks of Antwerp, Brussels, and Bruges.
Focal points along the Elbe include Dresden (for centuries one of Europe's major cultural centers, it's still home to impressive collections of artwork and Baroque-style architecture) and Magdeburg (one of the continent's most important medieval cities).
"The Blue Band" originates at the intersection of its two headstreams, the Red Main and the White Main, and flows westward before joining with the Rhine. Along its route, passengers can expect to encounter an array of ancient castles and cathedrals, dense forestlands and low mountain ranges, the beer gardens and vineyards of Bavaria and Franconia, and multicultural Frankfurt.
No cruise along the Moselle would be complete without a visit to Trier, Germany's oldest city and home of the Holy Tunic plus many of Europe's best-preserved examples of early Roman architecture.
Stretching from Switzerland's eastern Alps to the North Sea coast, the Rhine courses through many of Europe's largest cities, including Strasbourg (France), Cologne and Düsseldorf (Germany), and Rotterdam (The Netherlands).
