European History & Politics

Some European river cruises specifically highlight the history and culture of the region. Sailing through central Europe and along the Danube, Main, Rhine and Mosel Rivers, cruises focused on European history and politics offer you the opportunity to visit landmark sites, listen to fascinating lectures and discover unique and interesting perspectives. With a diplomacy expert onboard, you'll be able to discuss issues and ask questions in an informal environment throughout your cruise. Shore excursions might include guided sightseeing tours of historic cities such as well-preserved, medieval Regensburg, the Hungarian capital of Budapest and the "Golden City" of Prague.

Your accommodations, specially designed sightseeing excursions and onboard meals and entertainment are included in the price of your vacation.
