River Cruise Lines

Becoming more and more popular, a river cruise is an immerse and destination-focused vacation experience, on a small and luxurious vessel.

River cruises sail through the inland waterways of some of the world's most interesting vacation destinations (i.e. Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America), and provide their guests with a greater opportunity to spend time visiting more unique ports of call than a traditional cruise typically would.

Because the destination is the star of a river cruise, (typically guided) shore excursions are included at no additional charge by many River cruise lines. There are usually many interesting lectures given during the cruise, by experts on the history and culture of the region being visited.

Among the famous rivers that one may take a river cruise on are the Rhine, Mississippi, Seine, Danube, Mekong, Nile, Yangtze, Amazon and Douro.

When spending time in Passau, you can witness a stunning natural phenomenon. This port city is sometimes known as the “City on Three Rivers” because of its location where the Danube, Inn, and Ilz river meet. Each river sports its own color, so you can easily see where the water comes together from each waterway. The Inn River has a white hue, the Ilz water has a dark, almost black hue, and the Danube has a dark blue tint. Seeing each river swirl together is something you can only experience in Passau!
