River Cruise Tours

River cruise vacations offer a unique vantage point on cruising—and the country. Smaller vessels offer more personal, intimate travel experiences with all the same great amenities of ocean cruising like excellent meals, entertainment and activities. Traveling along the river on a smaller ship also means you are a closer to land and the changing panoramas that are the colorful backdrop of your vacation.

Pair a river cruise along the USA’s Mississippi River, Canada’s St. Lawrence River, or Europe’s Rhine, Main and Moselle with a regional train vacation plus city stays and sightseeing and the result is a memorable rail and river cruise vacation fantastic destinations including Memphis, Vicksburg, and New Orleans in the USA; Quebec City, Perce and Montreal in Canada; and Prague, Nuremberg, Cochem, Rudesheim, Koblenz, Cologne, Amsterdam, and Paris in Europe.
