Now is the time to treat yourself to the getaway you deserve! There are so many dreamy reasons to choose a river cruise for your next escape.

Choosing the right river cruise can seem daunting. The variety of river cruises available can seem exciting and overwhelming. Keep reading as I narrow down the abundance of options to my expert picks for your next luxury destination!
River cruises are smaller, craft vacations that give the goer the opportunity to experience the narrow river passes, and smaller docs that larger cruise lines can't access. The average vessel holds around 200 passengers-- a sharp comparison to the larger cruise lines with passengers in the thousands, creating a quaint and intimate atmosphere perfect for relaxing and reconnecting after a loooong year.
Many cruises are focused on the cultural enrichment of its guests. Once aboard, guides will recount the rich history of the cities you visit, enlivened with performances and eclectic entertainment, and taste the fine cuisine of the culture you are immersed in.
Lets not forget the incredible value that comes with an all-inclusive river cruise! Food, Wine, Daily Excursions and Incredible experiences all come standard with a luxury river cruise-- you will even get free WIFI to share your real-time travel stories with family and friends back home!
Smaller vessels means everyone gets fantastic views. As you cruise along the waterways, often you will have a view of the rich and diverse European landscape from both sides of your room, making a river cruise a perfect option if you experience motion sickness.
