Traveling to Europe is a big deal for most Americans, maybe even a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. With so many amazing and beautiful destinations to choose from, how do you decide where to go? At Arpin Travel, we have the answer: a river cruise vacation. Our team of travel agents is ready to match you to the perfect itinerary to give you an unforgettable vacation experience.
No need to plan, just show up
One of the biggest headaches of any vacation is planning what to do on your trip to make the most of your time away. By booking a river cruise vacation, you get to skip over all that hassle. A complete river cruise package includes visits to multiple port cities with guided tours for each place.
Over the course of about two weeks, you can visit close to a dozen cities while traveling in comfort and style. If that sounds like a lot to take in, don’t worry! River cruise packages offer tours for every port city you visit so you can learn more about their culture and history and take in the sights of these beautiful places. If you’re more of an independent traveler, that’s okay too; you can strike out on your own and explore at your own pace, just make sure you make it back to the boat before it leaves!
Travel in comfort between ports
If you wanted to skip over the stress of choosing your destinations, you’ll want a stress-free mode of traveling between them as well. Once again, a river cruise vacation has you covered. River cruise ships sport luxurious cabins, and with the number of passengers averaging between only 100 and 150 people, you will be in the perfect position to peacefully watch the scenery drift by as you make your way from one port to the next.
Discover hidden gems
A river cruise vacation will take you to the big cities that are already on your list, but what about some other places you may not have thought to visit? Your Danube River checklist is sure to include Amsterdam, Cologne, and Vienna, but what about Melk? This beautiful city built around an 11th-century abbey is just one of the many lesser-known destinations that would be a memorable addition to your vacation, but hard to work into a trip based around a single major city.
