River cruise ships ply the great waterways of Europe — from the Rhine in Amsterdam to the Main in Germany, the Seine from Paris to Normandy, the Saone in south of France, the Po in Italy, the Danube in Austria and points east. These cruises cater to a wide variety of preferences and budgets.
How much would a river cruise cost?
It depends on many factors. Just like ocean cruises, river cruises pricing depends on length of the cruise, itinerary, cabin category and seasonality.
Are River Cruises “all-inclusive”?
The beauty of river cruises is that unlike most ocean cruises, there is no nickeling and diming. All your meals, wines and some beverages are included in the price as are shore excursions.
What are some of the advantages of river cruises over ocean cruises?
River cruising is more intimate. You get to have a better feel of the local culture as you slowly pass through nearby towns and villages and see beautiful places, castles and forests as you glide by. All cabins are outside cabins with views, and there is no motion sickness. Dining, quality of cabins and embarking/disembarking are very pleasant and you will feel more relaxed.
Do themed cruises cost more?
Themed river cruises are quite common, from wine-focused to culinary bent to art to Jewish heritage. They normally do not cost more. Whatever your interests and passions, there’s a river cruise right for you! A number of different cruise lines operate in France: Viking, Uniworld, CroisiEurope, Amawaterways, and more.
