Default River Cruise Companies Comparison

Found this website that should help those wanting to do a river cruise and looking for some information comparing several of the companies;

River Cruise Reviews, Viking River Cruises vs. Uniworld River Cruises

I was disappointed that they glaringly omitted both Avalon Waterways, which in my opinion is better than Viking, and Scenic Tours, which is a very nice luxury company similar to Tauck.

So if you're thinking about doing a river cruise, which I highly recommend as they are absolutely wonderful, enjoy the information they provided, but please do not exclude both Avalon Waterways and Scenic Tours from your consideration as they are both excellent.

And as always, if you want more information or assistance with your river cruise, talk to your agent as they can be invaluable in helping you pick the best one for you.

River Cruises are wonderful. My husband and I enjoyed ours with Uniworld before he passed away. I will go again.

I have just placed a group of AMAWaterways for the spring of 2015.
It's 7 days with post of 4. If anyone wants any information, just let me know.

A feature of AMAWaterways, they do have single cabins and sell them without the usual markup. They only have so many per cruise but they do have the French balconies under this rate. Just something to think about for those who travel single.
Dec. 13 - Windstar sailing yacht. Wonderful!!

Just completed - Celebrity Reflection, Nov. 22 (learning to sail solo) followed by Independence of the Seas Nov. 30.

44 cruises - too many to list however cruiselines are in no particular order:

and some unknown tub

Yes, I'm a Royal Chump and proud of it.

River cruises are great because you will enjoy your vacation in most of Europe destinations. A river cruises consist of fairly a lot in your fare. You’re perhaps paying for the whole thing up front as an alternative of in two halves like on a distinctive ocean cruise, but just like a luxury sailing, there is to determine the relaxation that comes from knowing the wine you take pleasure in at lunch won’t cost you a dime on most river cruise lines.

That's why there are river cruises reviews to inform travelers to Europe know which one offers excellent services and great discounts.
