Cox & Kings has expanded its offerings with the introduction of river cruise journeys along some of Europe’s most famous waterways. Sailing the Seine, the Rhone, the Volga, the Rhine and the Danube, travelers can experience Europe and explore the cities and historic towns set along their banks.
The new European River Cruise itineraries offer travelers new experiences and the opportunity to acquaint themselves with each destination. While sailing the Danube, guests can trace the origins of paprika at the spice museum in Kalocsa, Hungary and enjoy a private evening concert in Vienna with the music of Strauss and Mozart. Along the Rhone in France, land excursions include sampling truffles in one of the small villages surrounding Tournus and an exclusive gala dinner at the Palais-des-Papes.
In addition to the enticing itineraries, guests who book a European River Cruise with Cox & Kings enjoy onboard amenities. These include a personal introduction and special welcome from the ship’s captain and a spa credit of $75.00 per person. Guests also have the option to extend their trip with tailored pre- and post- cruise journeys, handcrafted by Cox & Kings in-house team.
“With our ethos of authenticity and focus on off-the-beaten path travel, European River Cruising is a natural extension of our geotourism offerings,” says Scott Wiseman, President, Cox & Kings, The Americas. “These new river cruises bring travelers through the heart of their destination, immersing them in the country’s cultural fabric and remarkable history along the way… a truly luxurious adventure.”
