Once underway, it was apparent why river cruising throughout the world is one of the travel industry’s fasted growing segments. Unlike a bus tour from city to city, River Venture was our home for the journey and we unpacked once while our vessel delivered us to intriguing destinations. Shore excursions, included in the fare, were scheduled around meal times and we were free to dine on board or try the local cuisine ashore. For the more adventurous, bicycles were provided for independent touring—and a bit of a workout ashore.
Is a river cruise the best choice for you? We weren’t certain after our first trip last year, but this second one convinced us—it’s the only way to see the parts of the world where the big cruise ships can’t venture. Take a look at Cruise Diva’s first hand preview of River Venture and discover what river cruising in Europe has to offer.
