Small Ship River & Barge Canal Cruises
Vacation Sensations !
Up Close and Personal.... There is no better way to relax and explore the villages, towns, scenery and history of Europe & America firsthand than from the tranquility of a River or Canal Cruise.
Unpack once and enjoy.....
Although rapidly growing in popularity, with a wide choice of countries and waterways, river cruising & barging is relatively new to the vacation market. Unlike the large ocean going vessels that take thousands of people, river cruise ships are more intimate, taking only a fraction of that number. Cabin space is generally good, with excellent on-board dining and comfortable lounges. Traveling at a gentle pace through the countryside, visiting towns and villages along the river bank that are not accessible to larger ships. No waiting in line with hundreds of people for tenders to take you ashore; no need to take sea-sick pills, and you have the freedom to do as you please on land, strolling the boulevards and cafes. Generally, shore excursions are included in the price.
Similarly BARGING, with far fewer people on board than a river ship can be a delightfully relaxing way to explore the smaller towns along the banks of a river or canal that would otherwise be passed-by on any other trip. Restricted numbers, fine dining, excellent wines, peace and quiet and in good company.
