Rivers of Europe
Yesterday and today, rivers are the lifeblood of Europe; civilizations were built along the banks as Europe’s great rivers sustain so many aspects of daily life, from food to transportation. In centuries past, Europe’s inland rivers were dubbed the highways of kings, carrying nobility from one village or town to the next, from country to country, with an ease and style of travel both comfortable and convenient. Stories unfold around every bend, from the Douro to the Rhine, Moselle, Danube, Rhône and Seine.

Dreaming of the Douro
Stories and insights into everything Portugal
Yes, we’re dreaming of the Douro, and all of the wonderful places along the shores, especially in these warm months of summer. With three new cruises debuting in 2021, we thought we’d share three videos that were taken during our development trips; they provide a good look at the river experience, the foods of the Iberian Peninsula and an introduction to Porto, Portugal’s wine capital. We’ve also curated a selection of videos, podcasts and stories, from the strong influence of Azulejos (Portugal’s ceramic tiles) to a recipe for Porto Tónico or a documentary on the tradition of building the rabelo.
