For many travelers, the slower pace of river cruise is perfect for getting the lay of the land. Sitting on the top deck of a ship under brilliant blue skies, you gaze on fables landscapes dotted with castles, villages and vineyards. A flight of stairs down, and you have all the amenities of a fine hotel—restaurants, bars, lounges, fitness facilities, spas, internet access and comfortable staterooms. AMAWaterways, Viking River Cruises and Uniworld offer a diverse array of Europe cruise options, but you can also cruise Egypt’s famed Nile, the Mekong River in Vietnam and the Yangtze in China. Many of our most avid cruisers have become devoted fans!
