Family River Cruising

Are you curious about river cruising with kids?  Afraid that they may be bored or that the subject matter will not be interesting for them?  Think again!  There are many reasons why river cruise with kids is an ideal European vacation.

Ease of travel –    River cruising is extremely convenient as your accommodation moves you from place to place, no need to pack and unpack or check in and out.  There is no time wasted on buses, trains or flights or driving yourself  to get from one place to another. The river ship brings you right in to the destination, you will dock at small town and big cities alike and can walk right off the ship in to the destination.  This reduces travel time and maximizes your time in the destination.

Inclusive pricing –  River cruising is also very inclusive, there are not excess charges for excursions, you have a choice in each port and sometimes there can be more than one port a day so you get to see and do lots without the excess expense of tours.  With costs ranging from $75-250 per person the savings for a family is substantial!  Gourmet food and wine are also included with no excess charges.

Exclusive views – Many castles towns and were built on the rivers as they were the highways of the past.   There are so many sights that you can only see from the river, they are not visible in a car or on a train.  The vineyards climbing the hills in the Wachau or Duoro Valleys, the Castles perched on a hilltop with vistas over their territory can only be seen from the river.  When this is combined with the ease of travel, it makes river cruising one of the most convenient forms of travel there is.

Did you know that the popularity of family river cruising is growing?  River cruise lines are beginning to shift their focus to families with older kids as they realized that families are the perfect market for this exceptional form of travel.

The leaders in family rivers are Adventures by Disney.  They have activities, menus, entertainment and even ships with connecting suites customized to families.  The famous Disney service is second to none and the Adventure Guides change your vacation from ordinary to extraordinary.  A family travel specialist at Vacations with Kids can help you pick the right river, cruise itinerary and activities for your family river cruise vacation.
