The Big Two: River cruises that offer something different

something different

There are plenty of opportunity for your guests to take a European river cruise that goes beyond the typical itineraries. Whether that’s a themed cruise, like Amadeus’s jazz sailing on the Seine in October, or CroisiEurope’s monster 40-day anniversary itinerary. The latter in particular is a great opportunity to see a majority of Europe’s waterways, while not spending the earth to do so.

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s River guide 2016, each week we will be running our Big Two feature, which gives you a couple of cruise options. This week it’s river cruises in Europe that offer something different.

Cruise Adviser top tip

Always keep your eye open for themed cruises. River cruise lines have been quick to cater for gastronomes, audiophiles and knitters. As ever, just make sure that you do your homework!
