River cruises are more intimate than big ocean ships, plus they sail into the heart of a country.

For 2015, the river lines have ramped up their offerings of themed cruises – everything from beer to jazz, tulips to history.

Themes to Entice

Golf, Anyone?: Departing July 17, 2015, Avalon Waterways offers an “Austrian Highlights and Bavaria River Cruise,” which operates from Vienna to Munich with golf as the special theming. River cruisers will tour such destinations as Vienna, Melk, Durnstein and Grein and visit such sites as Germany’s impressive Neuschwanstein and Linderhof castles. What’s different on this cruise date from the normal itinerary? A local golf expert will join guests onboard and arrange tee times at three courses along the river route. Roundtrip transportation to the golf courses is included. Greens’ fees, carts, caddies, and equipment are extra.
