River Cruising is More than Western Europe
Most people when they think of a river cruise picture themselves on a river in the heart of Europe – the Rhine, the Moselle, or the Danube. A few others may think of France – the Seine, the Rhone, the Dordogne, the Saone or the Garonne as they have visited Normandy or the wine regions of France on a recent cruise. Someone else may have cruised the Elbe in Czechoslovakia and Germany. A new popular river cruise choice is the Duoro River which transports one through a beautiful wine growing region of Portugal from Oporto on the Atlantic to nearby inland Spain (by land on an excursion). With all of these river cruise destinations, the traveler knows of the attractions and places he/she will visit as they are popular and widely known to the average person.
