European River Cruise Honeymoon

Guest Author - Kara Williams

Admittedly, most honeymooners choose an ocean cruise, typically of the Caribbean or the Mediterranean. But here's another option you may not have thought about: a river cruise in Europe.

River cruising is a wonderfully relaxing way to see many different cities, towns and villages in one region of Europe. Your "floating hotel" takes you from one port to another, while cruising lovely scenic waterways. From an outdoor deck, you can relax in a lounge chair, and watch lovely countryside pass by. Along the way, snap photos of ancient castles, charming villages or major monuments.

Typically, the ship docks daily at a different port, which allows you to take included shore excursions and explore town on foot with a local sightseeing guide.

European river cruises take place along the Rhine and Main in Germany, the Rhone in the South of France and the Danube in Hungary. Some itineraries cover a number of different rivers and countries. Others cruise the waterways in the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain.

Many river cruise companies use new, state-of-the art ships that are typically much smaller than ocean cruise vessels, so you'll get to know your crew and fellow passengers well. Staterooms usually have hotel-style beds (important for honeymooners!) and satellite TV. Onboard amenities range from fitness centers and swimming pools to cozy libraries and upscale lounges.

Unlike many ocean cruise ships, meals are held in one sitting, with open seating. Local wines are served with every dinner, and menus usually feature local delicacies. Onboard entertainment and activities can include musical performances, informative cultural lectures and wine tastings.

Here are just a few European river cruising companies:

Avalon Waterways
Uniworld Grand River Cruises
Amadeus Waterways
