Our informative Spotlight Series is yet another reason to work with one of our Personal Travel Planners who are experts on all things to do with river cruising. Why? They’ve all been to the river cruise countries, personally experienced the river cruise lines and their ships, and they’ve ferreted out the secrets of all the best things to see, do, explore and participate in at all the most popular destinations. They have all the answers for you as you book, plan and prepare for one of the most memorable vacations you’ll ever take!

But, the Spotlight Series is really just the “tip of the iceberg” when it comes to making sure all of our customers know everything they need to know about their river cruise vacation destination, ship, and upcoming experience. When a customer books with Premier, they also receive a copy of one of our exclusive, destination-specific COMPASSPOINT Guides. Each Guide in the series is chock-full of valuable information and details that will help you plan, prepare, and pack for your vacation... right down to what the temperature will be when you cruise!
