European River Cruising

Thanks to Viking River Cruises and several million dollars per year spent on marketing and promoting, most Americans are familiar with river cruises in Europe. Ships that hold no more than 200 passengers, 4-5 star dining experiences, ability to visit up to a dozen countries without packing and unpacking and exceptionally high quality sightseeing are just a few of the reasons this type of travel has become so popular. Over 500,000 have experienced river cruising in Europe alone.

What’s the difference between an ocean cruise and a river cruise? River cruises generally focus on cultural and historical sites. Ports are often right in the city center with included tours and excursions of nearby castles, museums and other points of interest.


Ocean cruises offer a lot of night time entertainment as well as daytime fun onboard. Many ports of call are at beaches and tourist spots known for shopping and dining.

My favorites?

My favorites? I had the pleasure of sailing the Mekong River in Cambodia and Vietnam with my teenage son two years ago and also the Amazon River with my husband this year.
