River cruising provides a ready adventure through the valleys of storied rivers, like the Danube, the Rhine, and the Yangtze. It’s a slow mode of transportation, but that can be a good thing when you’re exploring lands rich in beauty and history. In addition to big cities, a cruise can showcase areas along the way, delving into a country’s core: the villages, castles, and countryside along the waterways that gave life to its civilization. You can find cultural treasures—a town square at Christmastime, a centuries-old abbey, a floating market in Thailand, or ancient Egyptian temple—without having to be your own navigator. You avoid extra flights, hotels, and lines. And some cruises sail at night, saving time to experience more nature or culture. Cruises offer a similar gamut of accommodations to hotels. Compared to ships at sea, a river vessel is a very smooth ride, allowing you to appreciate the unfolding panorama.
