Product Description

A river cruise is undoubtedly the most civilized way to see the best of Europe; you can relax in the comfort of a small vessel as you glide through beautiful towns and spectacular scenery. But how do you choose which cruise company, which kind of rivership, and where to go? The Berlitz guide to River Cruising in Europe will tell you everything you need to know about taking a cruise along Europe's beautiful rivers and waterways. The book cuts through the brochures' hype - almost every river cruise company promises you luxury. But what does 'luxury' really mean? The guide gives you unbiased advice on the different kinds of river vessels and the facilities they offer, helping you to make an informed choice. We take you on a journey along Europe's rivers and waterways, describing the highlights along the way - the historic cities and majestic scenery of the Danube, the castles and vineyards of the romantic Rhine, and much. Also included are listings for over 200 river vessels, which are described in detail and impartially rated, so that you can easily compare ships and their facilities.

Not bad but the author misses one of the most important things about river cruising; namely when the cruising takes place. It took us quite a long time to disentangle coded messages in brochures. For instance "we arrive in mid-morning at" means that you have cruised through the night and missed all the interesting places because it is difficult to see when it is dark. This is really important because, unlike sea cruising, the views while on a river are so much part of the holiday. Eventually we found out (for ourselves) that Viking do a lot of their cruising at night so that, for instance, you miss part of the Rhine Gorge on some of their trips; Scenic Tours do quite a lot of their cruising at night while Shearings do virtually all of their cruising during the day. Hopefully a second edition will address this key point

Cruising is expensive and as we had never been on one before, we thought that the more research we could put into sorting out a suitable cruise experience for us, the better and the more we would get out of it.

This book is easy to read and to use and gives background into what the advertisements do not tell you - i.e., how good the food really is, what wines can you expect; is fully inclusive going to be suitable; if you are going for more than a week, how are you going to cope with the logistics of washing clothes as (I think) all river cruise ships do not have a laundry facility and only if you stay in the most expensive suites can you have a very small number of items laundered. This book gives you all the details about all presently available river cruise lines and boats available. Anyone who hasn't been before should read this before booking so as to avoid possible disappointment.

We now have a different perspective about which boat/s would suit us and we feel that the cost of this book has been a wise investment.

Just the sort of book you would want if you are thinking about river cruising. Full of information and especially useful for the first time traveler. I did my first river cruise in August 2014 and this book gives lots of useful information if you are planning future river trips which I am in the process of doing.

Arrived promptly and in good condition - very informative for newbies to river cruising, in that the options from luxury to budget were clearly set out (and what these consisted of) . We found the boat we'd booked - which was lovely despite being an older boat.

This is the first time l have read a full review of River Cruising, and was really pleased and interested in the comments on river boats.

As good and informative as the Cruise Guide for Sea Cruising.

Well worth having as a reference book for river boat information.

A first class book to read and digest, and it has given us some very good advice on the different vessels that would cater for our needs.
