Choosing a River Cruise That’s Right for YOU

Calling all foodies, history lovers, and wine connoisseurs!

Picture this. . .

You’re cruising along the calm, soothing waters of the Danube river, and everywhere you look, you’re surrounded by emerald green valleys and magnificent castles that make you feel like you’ve traveled back in time.

As you sail through the beautiful landscapes, you stop to taste a variety of wines—like crisp Riesling and rich Merlot—made from grapes grown right in those valleys. You love a good wine more than anyone you know and are pleased to be surrounded by others who appreciate wine just as much as you do.

Or maybe wine isn’t your thing…but you love food. While cruising down the river, you stop along the ports where you can treat yourself to bowls of hearty stew, potato pancakes and warm dumplings, savory dishes with spiced and beer-marinated meats, fresh river fish, creamy cheeses, and buttery rich pastries with endless cups of fresh coffee. Can you imagine literally eating your way down a river?

And don’t even get me started on the Christmas markets that line the Danube! (They’re a WHOLE vibe.) Prepare yourself for sensory overload as you step off your cruise ship—from the twinkling lights and decorations, to the rows and rows of vendors, to the fresh scent of trees, to the sweet and savory scents of gingerbread cookies, hot chocolate, and mulled wine wafting through the air. If you love Christmas, you have to experience it in Europe!

Regardless of what you’re into, there’s a river cruise for you.
