River Cruises

River cruising provides a gentle way to travel where your luxury floating hotel drifts gently along the waterways to cities, towns and villages. While you may spend several days at sea on an ocean cruise, a river journey averages one port per day with shore excursions to enjoy along the way. There’s more time to explore ports, cycle or wander at your destinations and partake in the local culture and customs.Gourmet-themed river cruises are popular in particular are the seasonal Christmas markets in Europe.
