Europe Rivers

River cruises are offered on a variety of waterways in Europe, and each one hold its own special allure. You'll travel on small, well-appointed riverboats that dock in the center of town, close to the main sights.

Danube River cruises take passengers to intriguing Old World cities like Vienna and Budapest, and through the pretty Wachau Valley. On a Rhine River cruise, you can visit the famed Gothic cathedral of Cologne, the pedestrian-only Drosselgasse in Rudesheim, and the art museums of Basel.

Cruises of the Elbe River travel through Germany and the Czech Republic on a route lined by ancient fortifications and medieval villages. The Mosel River, called the Moselle in France, showcases the German region best known for its Riesling wines.

Learn about Cossack and Tatar history on Dnieper River cruises in Ukraine, and get a firsthand view of fascinating Russia on a Volga River itinerary, where you'll spend time in Moscow and St. Petersburg, among other destinations.

In France, Saone River cruises offer opportunities to sample the wine and cuisine of Burgundy, while Rhone sailings wind through Provencal towns and landscapes. Seine River cruises follow a route between Paris and the coast of Normandy, stopping at Rouen, home to a magnificent cathedral, and D-Day landing sites at Omaha Beach.

Douro River itineraries in Portugal lead to charming villages, deep gorges and the lush vineyards that produce the country's famous port wine. And in Italy, you might enjoy a gondola ride through Venice's picturesque canals before cruising the Po River to Bologna, northern Italy's culinary capital.

Our European river cruises provide a relaxing, easy way to explore the continent's grand cities and beautiful scenery. You'll unpack only once and settle in for a leisurely sailing. They are easy to budget, because one price paid up front includes your cabin, onboard meals and guided sightseeing at each stop.
