About river cruises

Unpack once and relax. A comfortable river-view stateroom gives you a sense of home as your floating hotel conveys you from one locale to another. Sailing smoothly and peacefully you admire changing scenery along the banks, fresh breeze on the open air decks and unforgettable sunsets over the river.
