I have worked in Travel since 2012. This has been a mixture of ocean cruising and in the past 4 years has been dedicated to river cruising.
It’s a perfect way to see multiple inland cities in a week or two week holiday. They also have incredibly in depth excursions in all ports of call which completely immerses you in the destination and culture.
I have been very lucky to have sailed with many river cruise lines including: Avalon, Emerald, Scenic, Riviera, Amadeus, Viking, AmaWaterways, Uniworld, APT, Croisi Europe, Crystal and U by Uniworld.
If you are a first time river cruiser, I would recommend a Danube sailing for the culture and history. If you prefer the Landscapes of medival Europe, the Rhine is the perfect choice.
My favourite cruise was the first one I ever did. This was a Danube sailing from Budapest. To be docked in the centre of this incredible city, and to see it lit up at night was truly wonderful. The ongoing Itinerary I did has since inspired many city breaks to the ports of call because they were so beautiful. I fell in love with river cruising instantly, and I think you will too!
