I recently had the chance to experience a 5 star European river cruise for the first time and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. Stepping aboard the ‘Space-Ship’ like boat that was docked in Amsterdam, I was about to glide through Amsterdam’s remarkable network of canals, in river cruising luxury – if you want to explore European destinations at a gentle pace, river cruising is certainly one of the best ways to do this. Imagine yourself sipping sparkling champagne, whilst listening to nothing but the calm, gentle sounds of the river lapping against the bows.
River boat cruising is becoming more and more popular. The cruise lines such as Viking Cruise Line have been upping their game to appeal to a greater audience. What a perfect way to explore a region or country where you only have to unpack once. The ships are smaller and more intimate with personalized service and the food is what you would expect of a Luxury cruise line..
