Discovering Central Europe
While cruise ships call at the sea ports of Europe, you can enjoy a river cruise while discovering Central Europe.
The many rivers of the continent were once the centre of commerce and transportation. Towns and villages were built along the river banks and many buildings were designed to face the water. A river cruise gives you a unique perspective on these historic places. It also lets you visit the leading cities of Paris, Vienna, Berlin, Cologne, Prague, Budapest, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Basel, Strasbourg and many more.
Our preferred partners, Avalon Waterways, Uniworld and Viking River, offer cruises on the following rivers:
