River Cruising has taken the travel world by storm over the past few years, more and more travel lovers are keen to sail some of the world’s most beautiful waterways.
Rather than sailing the open ocean, a River Cruise takes you on an intimate journey along inland waterways, docking right in the heart of some of the world’s greatest cities and towns, allowing you to experience more of the destination. Enjoy breath-taking scenery; from hillside vineyards to medieval castles, even a full day of cruising brings you scenic views of the world’s most spectacular valleys.
The smaller size of the ships and the fewer amount of guests on board not only provides more personalized service but also allow the opportunity to get to know more of your fellow guests, often creating lasting friendships.
Though River Cruises are mostly designed for adults, be sure to ask us about Adventure by Disney and Tauck Bridges River Cruises for Families - they are very popular especially with multi-generational groups and sell out early!
