River cruising is perfect for guests wanting an authentic, personal cruising experience. There’s an intimate atmosphere on smaller ships where guests can get to know one another on a deeper level than on an oversized ocean ship. Guests can also get to know their destination better, with unique ports unavailable to larger ships and lectures about the history and culture of the destination lead by experts onboard.
River cruises are most loved because there’s always changing scenery throughout the day. Guests can see the picturesque countryside of France, stunning Norwegian fjords, or towering German castles, up close and personal from the comfort of the Sun Deck or Dining Room.
Most river cruise ships feature all outside rooms with private verandahs, perfect for a quiet morning with a cup of coffee of tea and the breathtaking scenery. Dining onboard features regional specialties and fresh produce bought from the local port’s market. Many river cruise ships invite local performers onboard each night for an after-dinner show with dancing and singing.
Shore excursions are typically complimentary on river cruises, creating a worry-free way to explore ashore. Shore excursions are lead by local guides and knowledgeable cruise staff and visit local landmarks, famous monuments, ancient villages, and unique areas for glass blowing demonstrations, wine tastings, and castle tours. Many cruise lines also offer complimentary bicycles for guests wanting to wander at their own pace.

River cruises are a chance to see exotic lands and historical cities like you've never seen them before. From winding medieval streets and elegant architecture to steamy jungles and bustling marketplaces, a river cruise allows you to get closer and see more.
There's seeing Egypt, and there's seeing Egypt from a boat on the River Nile, cruising on a traditional felucca past ancient temples and cities. On a Viking River Cruise, you can experience the great waterways of the world, from the Middle East and Asia to East and West Europe. Discover the Valley of Kings or the Avenue of the Sphinxes in total comfort, sharing the wonders of the world with fellows travellers on your luxurious river cruise.
If you're after a more intimate holiday, if you want to make new friends and get to know the Captain and staff on your vessel, a river cruise is definitely the choice for you. With smaller boats and fewer passengers you'll find more attentive service, a great camaraderie among the guests and staff who'll feel more like friends by the end of your holiday.
Of course, the added benefit of a smaller ship is that when you arrive at port, you are immediately in the heart of your destination. Simply step off the boat and head out to a local taverna for dinner, hire a bicycle for a ride through Amsterdam or stroll around Europe's charming Christmas markets in winter.
