Let your imagination float along the coastal inspiration of sublime river cruising!

Imagine drifting along the vast continental waterways connecting the North Sea to the Black Sea, stopping by the most beautiful picturesque castles along the Rhine or the Danube, discovering the soul of Russia amongst the legendary palaces and cathedrals of the Tsars! River cruises allow tourists to get up-close-and-personal to inland cities such as Vienna, Budapest, and Moscow.

Viking River Cruises has long been renowned for its Scandinavian iconic styling, the in-depth educational quality of its tours, and for bringing on board local performers. Imagine magical journeys like “Paris and the Heart of Normandy”, the “Cities of Light”(Paris, Luxembourg, Koblenz, Heidelberg, Prague), Portugal’s “River of Gold” (Lisbon, Porto, the Iberian countryside to Salamanca, Régua ) or “Footsteps of the Cossacks” (Odessa, Sevastopol of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, the Tartar city of Bakhchisarai, Yalta palaces and governmental halls, St. Catherine’s Cathedral, Kiev)! In contrast, Uniworld’s Boutique River Cruises stylize their cruise ships with ferry-like exteriors and distinct interiors with heavily ornamented wallpaper and vivid, chromatic drapery and upholstery. The styling of AmaWaterways has a glass-and-steel smoothly curving exterior frame, and subdued neutrals, taupe, beige and brass accents for interior décor.

AmaWaterways features a fascinating range of tours such as “Provence & Spain”(Paris, Lyon, Tournon, Viviers, Barcelona and highlights of vineyards, olive farms, and Avignon’s papal palace); “Magnificent Europe” (Amsterdam, Cologne, Rüdesheim, Würzburg, Nuremberg, Salzburg, Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest coupled with the Benedictine Abbey tour), and the “Black Sea Voyage” (Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Veliko Tarnovo, Plovdiv, Istanbul with tours of the Baba Vida fortress, Giurgiu Parliamentary Palace, and the Vukovar Civil War landmarks).
