Posted March 31st, 2014

One moment you’re gliding through the striking channels of Amsterdam, then as you wake you’re blissfully absorbing the French landscapes of the Rhone and Seine rivers on your private balcony.  It couldn’t get any better right?

European River Cruises are quickly growing in popularity because it allows the traveller to experience a taste of each of their chosen locations conveniently.  Whether you want to inhale all the pasta in Italy or take a romantic stroll around the Eiffel Tower, a river cruise allows you to customize your holiday to tick off a bucket-list filled with adventures and picturesque landscapes.  Is this reason not good enough?  Here’s three more reasons as to why European River cruises are the ‘must do’ getaway of 2014 and 2015.

Variety and Quality

One of the many reasons why a European river cruise is quickly trending is the diversity and overall quality of the cruises.  Several of the most recognized cities are packaged under the same cruise, making it suitable for first-time travellers wanting to experience a wide-range of adventures.  With this diversity, cruise ships provide excellent guided tours to most of the important sites, encompassing great knowledge about the history and destination of the locations.  Travel companies who offer this service include Tauck River Cruises, delivering quality guided tours to countries like France, Belgium and Holland.  In other holiday experiences you have to deal with the stresses of having to book different activities and see different landmarks; what makes a European river cruise more convenient is that all your travel needs from accommodation, food, tours and travels are planned and paid for under one transaction.

Relaxed and Comfortable Environment

I know you’re probably thinking “What? River cruises are a comfortable travel experience - aren't the ships really small?” But yes, for the most part river cruise ships are now a lot more spacious and luxurious.  The cruise staff are well experience and knowledgeable, more than willing to accommodate to your needs; and your suite delivers on all the goods.  For example, the ms Swiss Emerald that travels to France's Rhône and Saône rivers, offered by Tauck River Cruises include customized pillows and blankets, thick pillow top mattresses along with Essentials Line of Molton Brown bath products and luxurious bathroom amenities just for your coziness.  They also offer a great selection of meals accompanied with your favorite beverages and onboard entertainment.

Entertainment and People

Last but not least, the great thing about river cruises is the onboard entertainment and the people you experience the journey with.  Onboard activities include special events such as movie nights, beer and wine tasting or singing along with the entertainers, on deck to fully immerse in the region and culture of Europe.  Travelling solo doesn’t mean you’re travelling alone.  You get to meet so many like-minded individuals along the way, the cruise staff make you feel right at home from the moment you enter the ship till the moment you wish it didn’t have to end.  Tauck River cruises offer cruises for people travelling solo, with partners or with groups, making it so convenient for everybody.
