In addition to being one of Europe’s most important rivers, the Rhine is also one of its most beautiful. It originates in southeastern Switzerland and the Upper Rhine flows toward Basel, then into Germany where the Middle Rhine Valley is flanked by pastoral towns, vineyards and dozens of castles and fortresses. River cruise visitors experience all these delights and more as they cruise along the river.
WHY SAIL TO ON A RIVER CRUISE
FRENCH RIVER CRUISES
The longest river in the European Union, the Danube River is the second-longest river in Europe after Russia’s Volga. It begins in the Black Forest region of Germany and runs through 10 countries (Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine) on its way to the Black Sea.
RHINE RIVER CRUISES
France is a western European country stretching from the Mediterranean to the North Sea, from the Rhine River to the Atlantic Ocean. It borders Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco, Andorra and Spain. The Rhône, Saône, Seine, and Rhine Rivers also flow through the country, giving visitors many opportunities to enjoy a relaxing France river cruise.
River cruising offers ever-changing landscapes and scenery; smooth sailing with no seasickness; and walk-right-off-the-ship-into-town access to the history, character and cultures along the banks. To truly discover the nature of a land and its people, there’s no better means than traveling by river.
