What Is the Itinerary For a European River Cruise?

After the long period of uncertainty brought by the covid 19 pandemic, river cruising is set to resume for 2022 on a bigger and better scale. It’s indeed a welcome relief for most adventure-loving travelers and lovers of Authentic Voyagers. Also, most European River cruise lines are all set for the new comeback to year-long cruises and tours across Europe. With improved cruise itineraries, you’ll have the excellent opportunity to experience Europe’s hidden treasures right along its rivers. From natural landmarks, sprawling country sides, wineries, and exotic cities, many voyagers can wait to indulge in this epic adventure once again. One good thing to note about these cruises is that Europe’s most hidden treasures lie along the continent’s rivers. And there are some incredible cruise options to choose from. These options will include several exciting itineraries for European River cruises scheduled for 2022 and beyond.

European Cruises by Rivers

For 2022, Viking River Cruise, Scenic River Cruise, and Uniworld River Cruises will be sailing across the continent through the great locations, cities, rivers and all the best routes cruised before the past two years. Cruising through the great rivers of Europe, these routes take voyagers through paths of history into Europe’s significant territories filled with architecture, wine, and diverse cuisine. And whether you choose to go on Western or Eastern Europe River cruises, these rivers promise to take you through the cities and villages, old towns and ports of Europe.

Each cruise line offers unique ships with luxurious features, fun-filled activities, and enjoyable amenities. However, all three (Uniworld, Viking, and Scenic cruises) provide a five-star luxury hotel experience aboard each ship.  Whichever cruise line you choose to go vacationing with, you’ll receive an all-inclusive stay to complete the ultimate vacation experience.

Viking River Cruise

Vikings first entered the European cruise market at the turn of the century, and for 20 years, they have done what they do best: helping voyagers get a taste of the best that Europe has to offer. Viking cruises cover almost all of Europe’s rivers and offer itineraries covering Western and Eastern Europe.

Uniworld River Cruise

Uniworld has been around since 1976, cruising through the great rivers of Europe, taking voyagers on exotic adventures, and improving their offerings over the years. Uniworld has about 14 ships featuring a classical, Victorian-era design theme complete with five-star hotel amenities. What to expect aboard Uniworld River Cruise includes: gold-hued fixtures, marble, and elegant, light-filled spaces, world-class dining, cocktail lounges, educational and entertaining experiences aboard the ship.

Scenic River Cruises

Unlike other cruises, Scenic is the only European cruise line that takes voyagers to every part of the world. This luxury cruise line offers itineraries across world oceans, to New Zealand, Canada, North America, and of course Europe. Scenic has been around since the mid-1980s and has since expanded to create its fleet of ships: the Scenic Space-Ships. These 16 Space-Ships offer luxurious five-star experiences to voyagers touring Europe and beyond.


There’s so much to see, do, and enjoy while aboard cruise ships on European Rivers. Whether you choose to go with any of the above-mentioned cruise lines, there’s something for everyone.
