One of the fastest-growing sectors of the holiday industry is river-cruising, with exciting new ships being added every year. And now, one of the largest river cruise operators – CroisiEurope – are offering free excursions packs on many of their river cruises.
River cruises take you to the heart of the city and can moor close to the main attractions. Imagine waking up on the Seine moored in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower! When you step ashore you’re right in the action with the best museums, shops, bars and attractions waiting to be discovered.
River cruisers are much smaller than ocean cruisers and carry typically around 100-200 passengers. They have a much more intimate and friendly atmosphere with relaxing bars and attentive staff providing a welcoming haven from the city’s bustle.
And it’s not just cities. Europe’s great rivers carve through some of the most picturesque countryside and there’s no better way to watch it all roll by than sat relaxing on the Sun Deck with a nice glass of wine.
