On a European trip, you can join in activities such as river cruises, cruises, wine tasting, biking, and village visits. Europe river cruises cost from $1,250 to $101,500 for a 5 to 22 days trip. Our expert Trip planners can help you plan your European river cruise based on your price range, length of cruise, and what you love most about Europe.
