December 19, 2022
The biggest appeal of seeing Europe by river is that you get to absorb the history, culture and lifestyles of a region from a perspective that you miss if you’re traveling by any other means. The views out your longships window is ever changing (except when the ship is docked or passing through a lock), and you don’t want to miss any of the must-see stretches, passing through some of the most picturesque or interesting parts, and knowing where you can position yourself either out on the open-air Sun Deck, or from the privacy of your balcony, as to soak up the scenery on both river banks rather than just one. (History didn’t unfold on only one side of the river, after all). So bring non-tie shoes you can race to the top deck in as soon as you spot a castle out your window.
