A river cruise is undoubtedly the most civilized way to see the best of Europe; you can relax in the comfort of a small vessel as you glide through beautiful towns and spectacular scenery. But how do you choose which cruise company, which kind of rivership, and where to go? The Berlitz guide to River Cruising in Europe will tell you everything you need to know about taking a cruise along Europe’s beautiful rivers and waterways. The book cuts through the brochures’ hype – almost every river cruise company promises you luxury. But what does ‘luxury’ really mean?
The guide gives you unbiased advice on the different kinds of river vessels and the facilities they offer, helping you to make an informed choice. We take you on a journey along Europe’s rivers and waterways, describing the highlights along the way – the historic cities and majestic scenery of the Danube, the castles and vineyards of the romantic Rhine, and much. Also included are listings for over 200 river vessels, which are described in detail and impartially rated, so that you can easily compare ships and their facilities.

As I'm considering a European river cruise, after having done my first of this type down the Nile, I found this a great way to compared riverships, destinations, and expectations prior to booking. Having cruised the Nile I would have like to see it reviewed even if not really a European river just to be able to compare the authors views to something I've experienced myself. Having said this he does instil confidence in his descriptions and gradings so I feel the book will prove a useful, ongoing resource.
