Riverboat cruises are charming alternatives to full-size luxury liner jaunts—although you won’t be sacrificing luxury!
Imagine waking up to a view of tulips and windmills on an opulent riverboat trip through Amsterdam. Stop at a port for a cheese-making demonstration, then dine at an old-world café before embarking on your next destination. Or discover the treasures of the Galapagos and tour the ancient ruins of Puca Pucara and Machu Picchu. Care to stay stateside? Take a riverboat from Music City to the Big Easy and enjoy southern cuisine, stops at music history landmarks, and trips to some of America’s most storied museums.
