Top 4 European River Cruises

River Cruises > Top 4 European River Cruises

From the Baltic Sea to the Danube, there are over 30,000 miles of rivers in Europe. Consequently, that’s plenty of opportunities to take a relaxing cruise from city to city, taking in the beautiful sights along the way. Besides, enjoying great food and accommodations at night adds to the overall experience. Moreover, this month we’ve decided to spotlight a cruise from each of our top 4 European River Cruises lines.


Come back each week as we count down to our top favorite cruise line.

4. Avalon Waterways


As far as top river cruises in Europe go, Avalon Waterways is a great option. In addition to the small ship sizes—which sail on rivers like France’s Loire, Germany’s Rhine, and Austria’s Danube—offer a low-key, relaxing experience without being too small to have any amenities. Furthermore, there are also many trips that span several weeks (or months). Additionally, you can really make an adventure out of it and see a variety of different places along your route.
