River Cruising Throughout the World
In case you haven't heard, River Cruising is the fastest growing segment of the travel industry. There's nothing quite like it.
Why? Because River cruising takes you right into the heart of the world's greatest cities and towns, and it gives you an incomparable experience surrounded by beautiful landscapes. To quote one of our River Cruise Companies, "Spend less time getting there and more time BEING there." So many cities and towns developed along waterways, which means they were literally made to be accessible by river. Sail directly to the heart of many destinations and walk right off the ship into the center of town.
No more unpacking one evening, packing the next morning and then running to catch the luxury motorcoach. On a River Cruise, once you board, you unpack, and that's it for the remainder of your excursion.

Why River Cruising?
Because most River Cruising ships accommodate between 120 and 260 guests, it is easy to make new friends. And there is no waiting in long lines to embark, disembark or have a meal.
Fairytale palaces, towering gorges carved through millennia, tiny villages nestled in the still preserved beauty of the landscape—enjoy breathtaking scenery that’s constantly changing through panoramic windows in the restaurant and lounge and stunning 360° views from the sun deck.
Stroll through an open air architecture museum in the middle of a Russian lake; watch the artists at work in a Meissenware studio; listen to a concert of ancient bronze bells in Wuhan. You are unlikely to reach these places any other way.
