European River Cruises
River cruising is quickly becoming the most popular new option for seeing Europe and all of its scenic and historical locations. Sail on luxuriously appointed vessels designed to offer a top quality cruise experience while, at the same time, allowing access to ports, towns, and cities not otherwise accessible on your average ocean cruise itineraries.
Yes, river cruises are a little more expensive than your typical ocean voyage. However, remember that for most river cruises your fare covers ALL costs...including transfers, shore excursions, fine dining with unlimited alcohol, WiFi service, and, in some cases, bicycles that you can use to explore towns on your own. And, if you book at just the right time, many cruise lines offer free or discounted round-trip airfare from most large U.S. cities!
If you're looking for a little more adventure, a little more immersion into the culture and a little more personalized service and accommodations, a river cruise is the only way to go!
A transatlantic cruise is any sailing that crosses the Atlantic Ocean, often when
re-positioning a ship from one part of the globe to another during the change of cruise seasons. Examples include the many ships that sail the warm waters of the Caribbean during winter months, then re-position to Europe for summer.
Re-positioning transatlantic sailings can range from 10 to more than 20 nights depending on the speed of the ship and the ports of call on each end of the cruise. For a true feel of classic Atlantic "crossings" from the golden age of sailing, this is the way to do it.
Transatlantic sailings are often bargains with the cost per person per day under $100 on many mainstream cruise lines.
