European river cruises
My wife and I are interested in European river cruises, and receive mailings from Vantage travel that appear to offer very attractive trips. Does anyone have experience with European river cruising and / or with Vantage travel? Comments?

Our good cruising friends, Val and Mike, have done two of these trips and enjoyed them greatly. I trust their opinions.

Re: European river cruises
I've been looking into a river boat cruise in the South of France. If you have not done so, please look into travel with Grand Circle. I compared their South of France cruise with that of Uniworld and thought that Grand Circle was best.

I also have in-laws who will take the Uniworld cruise in August. I'll be very interested in what they have to say.

Re: Re: European river cruises
When I lived in Europe, there were a number of river cruises available through European cruise lines. Downside was limited amentities, including availability of twin beds only. That's one reason why Vantage trips are attractive.

Will check options you suggest. Thanks.
