the inland waterways of the world is a unique experience, incomparable
to any other form of travel. The combination of convenience and comfort
along with the variety of scenery, culture, the fulfillment of one’s
mind along with one’s senses is like combining oil and vinegar, sugar
and salt, love and remembrance-it does not get better than this!
to their smaller size and low draft, river vessels can go where no
other land transportation can take you. You can sail into the
heartlands of various countries where some attractions can only be
reached by water (Russia). You can choose to cruise and explore one
country (China) or you can combine several in the span of a week
(Europe). And if your heart desires true adventure, some of our ships
will let you explore less visited areas such as the Balkans or take you
literally where only few tourists have gone before (Burma and Laos).
But no matter what destination or ship you choose, all of them will
afford you a similar level of safety, comfort and convenience.
No Packing and Unpacking!
a motor coach tour, once you board your floating hotel, you unpack only
once then sit back and relax as your ship sails from one attraction to
the next. This allows you to be as active as you want while at the same
time offering you the sanctuary of your cabin when you need a break!
Comfort and Convenience
of adjusting to various levels of hotels and methods of transportation,
you can relax in the comfort of your cabin while your ship takes you
from one exciting place to the next. Your cabin will be similar to your
room at home... comfortable beds, work table, vanity mirror, air
conditioning, spacious closet space, full feature private bathrooms and the one thing your home does not have scenery that changes, minute by every passing minute!
Luxury & Pampering
even though afloat, you lose nothing of the pampering of the best land
locked hotels. Your rooms are made up while you are exploring the local
sights. Your beds are turned down at night and a chocolate appears
magically on your feather pillow. You eat glorious meals while watching
the passing scenery through big picture windows… almost like a movie
enfolding before your eyes
sit at your table set with china, crystal and candlelight. You choose
world class meals , without worrying about the bill. You taste various
cuisines of the places you are visiting without having to make a
reservation… and the maitre d’ greets you by your name!
Sightseeing & Shore Excursions
almost every single day your “floating hotel” delivers you to new and
wondrous sights. Thousand year old cities where cobblestone streets beg
you to explore. Century old castles that speak of times gone by.
Monuments made by man from days of yesteryear and today. And all around
you, the wonders of nature… quiet flowing waters….deep green
forests…mountains…cliffs… reminding you daily why life is good. And all
of this is included in your price!
you sit in the evening enjoying the glow of the sunset, you listen to
the stories of local experts and lecturers. You delight in colorful
local folklore presented in your lounge. You sip your nightcap while
the sounds of Strauss flow gently though the night as our violinist
pours her soul into her music…
as you move from one location to the next without a worry on your mind,
a smiling, youthful crew awaits your every order. Need a drink, Sir?
Would you like an extra helping of dessert, Ma’am? Your wish is their
command. And, because your floating home holds 250 to as little as 20
people… You will never be “just a number!”
Can I Afford This Dream?
than you realize! Think about your last visit to a major amusement
park... How much was your hotel per night? For a week? A cold, bland
room with a parking lot view, where even a movie cost you $10! How much
was your food bill for 3 mediocre meals a day consisting of runny eggs,
burgers, pizza and a hot dog? How much was your entrance fee for the
privilege of standing in line while you waited an hour to go on each
ride? Add it all up and then compare it to the features included in all
of our cruises; accommodations, all meals, sightseeing and
entertainment. River cruises are a great value for money! So, go ahead…
take the plunge... and book yourself the trip of a lifetime!
