River Cruises

A river cruise is similar to a tour in that the itinerary is prearranged and your accommodations, meals, transportation and guided sightseeing are included for one attractive price. However, instead of traveling via motorcoach between cities and staying in hotels, you'll cruise on a well-appointed riverboat that docks in towns along the waterways traveled.

You’ll unpack only once, as your stateroom will be your home for the duration of the journey. When traveling from one place to the next, enjoy magnificent views from the ship and take advantage of the vessel’s modern amenities. And when you disembark, you’ll have convenient access to all the must-see attractions. Plus, a professional tour or cruise director will be on hand to help make your experience enriching and worry-free.

While river cruises are highly inclusive in general, the quality of included features varies based on the rating that we provide for each vacation listed below.
