Why should I choose a river cruise?
Main River cruises offer the best way to experience this part of Germany. These all-inclusive cruises offer lodging, onboard meals, and day excursions in the price of the ticket. Plus, you won't waste any time going from one site to the next since your lodging goes with you! The Main River passes by some of the most popular destinations in Germany, meaning that you will have excellent access to all of these sites right from your ship.
What should I look for on a riverboat?
The boats we have hand-selected
for the Main River cruises offer top comfort and service from a friendly crew, and feature multiple social areas like a spacious panoramic sun deck, dining areas and bars, and comfortable lounges. As you cruise the river, your vessel allows you to see the majestic sights of Germany from the scenic Main River and gives you access to some of the best historic destinations along the way.
Should I get a room with a balcony?
It all depends on what your priorities are, but they can often be an unnecessary additional expense. The way these river vessels are designed, each room faces out, which means that even rooms without balconies tend to have large picture windows that allow you to see the scenic nature of the Main River valleys. Plus, there is ample deck space on the panoramic sun deck where you can take in the majesty of the Main from all sides. Unless you have your heart set on a balcony, then a great alternative is getting a room with large windows or a sliding glass door that opens right out towards the fresh air (known as a "French balcony").
