The Big Three: all-inclusive river cruises in Europe

The Big Three: all-inclusive river cruises in Europe

What better way to see Europe’s rivers than in the absolute lap of luxury? These companies run cruises throughout the year, so the itineraries are not restricted to the dates we’ve chosen. However, below you will find some great offers on the Douro, the opening of the season in Paris and Crystal’s very first river cruise. So, what’s not to like? These cruises lend themselves very well to pre- and post-cruise stays too, Tauck in particular specialises in holiday extensions.

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s River guide 2016, each week we will be running our Big Three feature, which gives you a trio of cruise options to choose from based on regional ports. This week it’s cruises all-inclusive river cruises in Europe.

Cruise Adviser top tip

As we explained in our Ex-UK guide, customers taking a European river cruise don’t necessarily need to fly. The Eurostar is a great way of getting across the channel without having to take to the skies.
