Serbia River Cruise & Travel FAQs

Why should I choose a cruise of eastern Europe?
For decades, this region was shrouded in mystery as the world was split in two. Now travelers can explore Eastern Europe from the comfort of a cruise vessel. And the best part is that it's all-inclusive, meaning that once you've purchased your ticket, you won't have to worry about meals, tours, or lodging. Plus the transportation is the same as your hotel, so every morning when you wake up, you'll have brand new views out of your cabin window without ever having to pack and unpack your bags. 

What should I look for on a riverboat?
Our hand-selected boats were designed specifically to offer passengers comfort and style for their Serbia cruises. You will enjoy a panoramic sun deck, comfortable rooms, and a spacious dining area and bar, accompanied by a friendly captain and crew. While these aren't considered five-star vessels due to their space-limited amenities, they are guaranteed to offer an unforgettable and wonderful experience as you explore eastern Europe. 

Should I get a room with a balcony?
Balconies tend to be an unneccesary expense on most cruises. The boats feature large panoramic sun decks, and balconies can cost hundreds of dollars more. 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"). 

What is dining like?
You will get a taste of the gourmet local flavor as part of a well prepared international menu.

Will my vessel have WiFi?
It's possible, but don't count on it. More and more vessels each year are WiFi capable, but it's not quite standard yet. Plus, you might be out of range of WiFi even if your vessel does have it depending on where your cruise explores. Closer to the big cities, you can generally count on it. 

What kind of power outlets are there? Will I need a converter?
In Europe the power is 220v, not the 110v like in North America, but typically devices can handle both without the need for a converter. You will need plug adapters for either two round prongs (European style) or three flat prongs (British style). 

How can I save money on a cruise of Poland?
A great option to save money on an Eastern Europe cruise is consulting our deals page to see what the latest promotions are. You can also let us know which cruises interest you or which destinations you'd like to visit and we'll let you know as soon as there are promotions. It's advisable to NOT try to save money by reserving cheaper cabins since this often results in less space or worse views.

Are Poland cruises a good family vacation?
Cruises that visit Serbia are a great way to enjoy a family vacation. The sites and destinations of Eastern Europe are definitely suited more towards an adolescent or older crowd, as most itineraries feature walking tours and historical exploration at the heart of each day.

Do Americans and Canadians need a passport and visa to travel to Serbia?
All citizens of North America traveling to Europe need a passport that is valid for at least 6 months. In recent years, it has not been necessary to apply for a visa before traveling to Europe if you plan to stay less than three months, however, this situation may change in the future.
