The Many Advantages of European River Cruising
Andrew Jackson January 15, 2023

Traveling to Europe is an unforgettable experience but navigating your way around can be overwhelming and time-consuming if you try to do too much at once. This is especially true when hopping from country to country by tour bus or piecing together intra-European flights. Instead of going from one country to another by air or land, why not take the journey of a lifetime with a European river cruise?

With Vantage, you can enjoy the best of both worlds on a river cruise – a 5-star luxury experience combined with incredible destinations full of culture and history. River cruises offer travelers the chance to visit multiple countries in one trip, taking them on a journey through some of the most stunning towers, fortresses, and castles in Europe.

What to expect on a European river cruise

A European river cruise with Vantage also takes you beyond the big cities and gives you unobstructed views of some of Europe’s most charming towns as many riverside villages remain relatively unchanged for centuries. The rivers also provide access to small ports that are inaccessible by larger cruise ships which means that visitors get to explore even more of what these locales offer without feeling like part of a crowded tourist scene. You can see many ports in just a matter of a few days, without the long waits and travel time from airports or bus terminals to the historic centers or cultural heritage sites.

Your days will be full of European history and culture as the river cruises give you the opportunity to visit castles, cathedrals, museums, and art galleries. You get both guided tours with local experts and free time to explore on your own. European river cruises also offer immersive experiences like wine tastings, cooking classes, or bike rides through charming villages. Each itinerary offered for European river cruises with Vantage covers a variety of countries, with stops in places like Austria, Germany, France, Portugal, Switzerland, and more. The European river cruise experience gives you the opportunity to relax and explore at a comfortable pace while having access to the best amenities and services offered on a 5-star luxury cruise ship.

Why you should choose a European river cruise for your next travel adventure

There are so many great ways to see Europe by its rivers that the options are practically limitless when it comes to choosing the perfect trip for you. You'll find that taking the stress out of planning each stop will give you more time to devote to the things that matter most; like learning about European culture and history, or simply enjoying a leisurely stroll along the riverways, villages, and capital cities. European river cruises combine convenience with luxury for a truly unforgettable experience, both while sailing and while in port.

On top of it all, river cruises are more comprehensive in-depth, and valuable than most other forms of travel as they provide many all-inclusive services such as accommodation, meals on board, guided tours, and special events. All you must do is decide where you want to go, and which itinerary works best for you, and the rest is basically taken care of. Whether it’s following the Danube or sailing along the Rhine, there's no better way to take in all that Europe has to offer than through a 5-star river cruise.
