The Rhine & The Danube

It was as recent as 1992 that the Rhine and Danube rivers were connected, providing 2,200 miles of unobstructed waterways through over a dozen countries, most not accessible on an ocean cruise. Today, Rhine River cruises and Danube River cruises through Central Europe are the most popular European river cruise itineraries for travelers for whom the destination is as important as the journey, and the emphasis on culture, art, music, history and heritage is paramount.

From the Alps, the Rhine River stretches to the North Sea, offering the beautiful scenery of Switzerland, Germany, and France, visiting charming villages, vineyards and castles. Cruising through Holland and Belgium in the spring during Tulip Time is a special highlight!

Romantic Danube River cruises meander from Germany to the Black Sea, passing through Austria and several Eastern European countries. The enchanting cities of Vienna, Budapest and Prague are the standouts.
