Travel Tips for France River Cruises

  • A common misconception is that all river cruises are high-end and expensive; however, there are options to suit different budgets. Research and compare packages before booking.
  • Understand the itinerary before you book. Some river cruises emphasize relaxation and scenery, while others focus on stops at different cities and landmarks.
  • Travel during the off-season when the crowds are low and you can get better deals. Off-peak seasons tend to be April/May or September/October when temperatures are more moderate and there is less humidity.
  • Food on the cruise ships can be very rich and heavy for anyone not used to the cuisine. If you are feeling over-full, it is best to take a break and buy a lighter meal from the nearest cafe or fast food outlet.
