River Cruise Tours
River cruise vacations offer a unique vantage point on cruising—and the country. Smaller vessels offer more personal, intimate travel experiences with all the same great amenities of ocean cruising like excellent meals, interesting shore excursions, entertainment, and onboard activities. Traveling along the river on a smaller ship also means you are closer to land and the changing panoramas that are the colorful backdrop of your vacation.
Pair a river cruise along the USA’s Mississippi River, Canada’s St. Lawrence River, or Europe’s Rhine, Rhone, Moselle, and Danube with a regional train vacation featuring city stays and sightseeing and the result is a memorable rail and river cruise vacation to fantastic destinations including Memphis, Vicksburg, and New Orleans in the USA; Quebec City, Perce, Montreal, and Toronto in Canada; and Prague, Budapest, Nuremberg, Cochem, Rudesheim, Koblenz, Cologne, Amsterdam, and Paris among many other storybook towns and historic cities in Europe.
