As the saying goes, what’s old is new again, with river cruises booming and more options than ever to explore these historic waterways. Gently sail past vineyards and castles, and see multiple cities in a single trip without having to pack and unpack. River cruises are a scenic and relaxing way to travel along the route of your dreams. “River cruising is a comfortable and easy way to travel to many of Europe’s most notable towns,” says Lore Doick, a Travel Designer with Tully Luxury Travel. “In many cases, you’re docked right in town, walking distance to restaurants, cafés and museums. You don’t have to worry about renting a car, finding your hotel or looking for a nice place to have dinner. It’s all taken care of for you — the hardest thing is picking an itinerary!”

Since rivers were the highways that connected Europe long ago, cruising these legendary waterways gives travellers the unique opportunity to explore the many towns and landmarks, including UNESCO-designated sites, that are nestled along the continent’s shores.

The recently unveiled Crystal River Cruises fleet promises to take river cruising to new heights with its six-star service, superior dining, spacious suites, expertly-curated itineraries and fascinating shore excursions.

The first Crystal River Cruise, aboard Crystal Mozart, debuts this July and offers guests the chance to get up close and personal with not one but two UNESCO sites. On the tour, experience Austria’s picturesque Wachau Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site featuring terraced vineyards, ancient ruins and the magnificent Schallaburg Castle.
