When you explore by river boat, no moment is wasted. Riverboats harness everything that’s great about cruising. You only unpack once, sleep in the same bed every night, with access to incredible tours, excursions and cultural experiences. Unlike giant oceanliners, riverboats provide an intimate travel experience.
What’s more, river cruising makes what could be a stressful travel experience a breeze. So often, we try to pack too much in the vacation of our dreams. I get it—a European trip is a vacation of a lifetime, and you want to squeeze out every last drop. However, it’s hard to be fully present when you’re tackling all the logistics yourself. Why not let a seasoned pro plan all the hard stuff, like transportation, tickets and reservations? When you don’t have to focus on the nitty-gritty details, it’s easier to soak up the beauty and history.
