Where destination and value converge.


The word "Europe" is such an evocative one.
It conjures up images of great empires and civilizations, of history both ancient and modern, and of cultures that laid the foundation for Western Civilization. And a European river cruise is the ideal way to take it all in and bring that evocative word to life.

Travelers from around the world have always found Europe to be an intriguing and welcoming destination, one that engages all the senses — the beauty of spectacular scenery and great art; the taste and aroma of extraordinary food and wine; the tangible evidence of thousands of years of history. Today's 4-star European river cruises enable travelers to see the history and culture of thousands of years, up close and personal.

The best way to experience almost any region is on a Europe river cruise.
Why you ask? Value! Unlike traditional ocean cruise vacations, almost everything you might reach into your pocket to pay for is INCLUDED in your Europe river cruise. A river cruise includes gourmet cuisine including delightful regional wines and beers, all shore excursions, and best of all — did we also tell you that it is impossible to get seasick on a river cruise ship?

A Europe river cruise vacation is like a European river: It flows, easily and blissfully, carrying away all worries and cares, offering a sense of stately elegance, winding past history — and, actually, becoming a part of history... not only Europe’s, but your own. You’ll return home with incredible memories and new found friends. Certainly, there are other ways to experience Europe. You can sit in traffic on an over-crowded, uncomfortable bus for hours on end, with the passing scenery reminding you more of the freeway back home than of any reason why you booked your European vacation to begin with. You can unpack every night in a large, impersonal hotel, only to pack up again in the morning and climb back on the bus for more tedious hours on the road. You can dine each night in an overpriced restaurant (made all the more expensive by the exchange rate) chosen by someone other than you, featuring menu items you can’t pronounce and ingredients you don’t recognize.

Then there’s the hassle-free way to experience Europe... the river cruise way.
Imagine unpacking just once and relaxing on a beautifully appointed 140-passenger river cruise ship. Look... there’s your stateroom or suite with a private balcony. And there’s your luggage, unpacked and tucked away from Day One, wonderfully forgotten until it’s time to return home. No more worries about getting your luggage to the curb early in the morning or wondering if you left something important — your cell phone, your sunglasses, your sanity — back in your hotel room. Also gone are concerns about reaching for your wallet every time you sit down to a meal. Remember, you’re on board a sumptuous river cruise ship, so there’s no need to consider your budget, fuss with cash, or fumble with credit cards. Your shipboard meals, including wonderful regional wines, beer, and soft drinks with dinner are all included.

What about shore excursions and other activities?
Again, you’re experiencing a Europe river cruise, so your shore excursions, ground transportation and entrance fees to attractions such as the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, castles like Vienna’s Hofburg Palace, and all the French wineries, museums and gardens, are also included. Of course, your Europe vacation isn’t just about being careful with a dollar. It’s about being wise with something else that is precious: TIME. You’ve looked forward to this week or two for many months or perhaps years, and now you want your travel experience to meet, or even exceed, your expectations.
