River cruising has quickly become one of the most popular ways of traveling. From the famous waterways of Europe like the Rhine and the Danube, to less traveled routes like Portugal's Douro and France's Rhone, to exotic destinations like the Mekong, Amazon, Yangtze and Ganges, unpack once, and cruise into the heart of the world's great cultures.
Before roads and railroads, there were rivers; many of the world's most cherished destinations were built from the water inland. Float by beautiful scenery and see them the way they were meant to be seen. Drop into riverside communities you wouldn't reach any other way, float past vineyards and pastures, and hop on and off your ship in ports of call to experience the sights, tastes and local culture in a unique and authentic way.
