France / Germany / Norway / Portugal / Pre Post River Cruise / Switzerland / Trip Planning | February 12, 2019

Pre- and post-river cruises in Europe are more popular than ever—and it’s no wonder. The immersive and intimate travel experiences offered onboard a river cruise is hard to beat. Why? Because river cruises don’t simply glide travelers into a country in luxury and comfort, they give you the opportunity to get up-close to all the must-see sights and attractions. In France, you can cruise along the Seine (winds through flavor-rich Normandy), Rhône (flows through Lyon), Dordogne and Garonne; in Germany as well as Austria, Croatia, and Romania, on the Danube. Experience the Elbe and the Rhine (there are castles in the Rhine’s Gorge) in The Netherlands, France, Switzerland, and Germany. In Italy, exciting cruises on the Po await! Then there’s Portugal’s Douro and Russia’s Volga.
