Our First Riverboat Cruise

As I prepare to travel for work, two out of the next 4 weeks, I cannot help but think about the European riverboat (Longship or Longboat) cruise that we have coming up this holiday season. For a little more than the cost of a Disney vacation, we will be seeing Amsterdam, spending 5 nights on the Danube River visiting Christmas markets in three cities, and then ending our trip with 3 days in Prague before returning home.

I cannot wait for this trip! I am not a large crowd person, don’t get me wrong, I have been in large crowds while trying to enjoy a place like the Vatican, but I prefer small, intimate, quiet while I try to absorb all the wonder that a historical place has to offer.

The ship will be unlike the ocean cruise I was on, with 150 cruisers, and my excursions will be covered with the cost of my cruise. A new city every morning and a new adventure every day. I look forward to the exploration of these new areas of the world. I look forward to seeing, hearing, smelling, and tasting all that the markets have to offer during the holiday season. I love food, so I am anxiously awaiting the cuisine on board the ship also. I look forward to the 5-star treatment and the relaxation I need. We will be posting pictures; videos and I will be blogging while we are on our trip. WiFi is onboard and included!

Providers that we work with are AmaWaterways, Viking Cruises, Riviera Cruises, and others.
