The Best of The Best: CroisiEurope's 3 Most Popular River Cruise Destinations

Considering the vast amount of cruise lines and trip itineraries offered today, choosing the best option can be difficult. Especially when you are planning early, the number of available options can be overwhelming! To help make your decision easier, here is a list of CroisiEurope's three most popular river cruise destinations:


Cruising down the Rhine river is a popular choice because, whether it's natural or man-made, beauty can be found almost everywhere. As the river meanders through Europe, it is surrounded by captivating scenery such as hillside castles, intense jagged cliffs, and delicate vineyards . If you cruise down the Rhine, you will explore amazing places such as Amsterdam, Strasbourg, Cologne, Brussels, and Antwerp. Certain cruises also float along the Neckar, Moselle, and Saar rivers to offer even more astonishing sights. 

While you cruise along the Rhine, you will discover breathtaking attractions such as the colorful floral gardens at Keukenhof and the Legendary Lorelei Rock. You will also get the chance to explore ancient and authentic towns and famous wine regions! Also, if you take CroisiEurope's cruise "The Rhine in Flames," you will spend one night watching extraordinary fireworks explode over the most beautiful stretch of land in Rhine.


The River Seine flows through the heart of the famed city of Paris, so it's no surprise that travelers genuinely love Seine river cruises. In Paris, you will see renowned sites such as the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Palais, the Louvre and Notre-Dame Cathedral. CroisiEurope also offers a special excursion so you can see this magical city illuminated at night! As the stars shine in the sky above you and the city lights glow around you, you will be at awe from the magnificent radiance. Tourists also love visiting The Beaches of Normandy, which offer sites from the most important events of the 20th century: the landing of the Allies in France. You will also explore the towns of Nantes, Angers, Honfleur, Duclair, Rouen, and Vernon

Many artists, poets, philosophers, and travelers treasure this river because they see it as a mirror in which the city finds its own reflection. Because of this metaphysical meaning, CroisiEurope offers a popular cruise known as Painting: Impressionist View of Seine. Since the Seine Valley is also known for being a truly magical place during the holidays, CroisiEurope offers another cruise that allows travelers to explore its Christmas Markets in the winter. Once you gaze upon the beautiful decorations and breathe in the scent of roasted chestnuts, you will feel the spirit of Christmas come alive.


Referred to as a UNESCO world heritage site, Bordeaux is known as a cultural site with beautiful architectural heritage--and travelers are certainly aware of this. Wine-lovers are especially interested in Bordeaux because it contains some of the best vineyards and wine cellars in the world. As you float along the Garonne River and join the Gironde River, you will pass by the enchanting islands of Cazeau and Patiras before arriving in Pauillac. In the afternoon, you can visit the Médoc--a prestigious region where the most famous of all red wines in the world are cultivated. You can also visit the Sauternes and Saint-Emilion wine regions, which are well-known and respected throughout the world.

Hikers especially love visiting Bordeaux, which is why one of CroisiEurope's popular Bordeaux cruises includes a Hiking Programme. In this programme, a qualified mountain guide will lead you through the vineyards and marshlands of the Médoc, along the paths in the valleys of the Dordogne and the Garonne, to the slopes and vineyards of Blaye and Bourg, and through the Gironde hills along the estuary. You will discover and admire the nearby sites and cities, including The Roquetaillade castle and the historic monument Cadillac. CroisiEurope also offers cruises that let you celebrate New Year's Day and Christmas along the Bordeaux River!
