When most people think of cruises, they think of going across the ocean, but river cruising offers something altogether more magical. Imagine traveling through a destination and getting an up-close and intimate look at some fantastic places. YMT Vacations offers a wide selection of river cruises that can give you an unparalleled experience for an incredible cost savings.

With YMT, you can explore the rich nature and history of Europe without leaving your ship.

How Do River Cruises Work?

As part of a European tour, YMT offers you the ability to choose between the Danube and Rhine rivers in Europe and cruise down them in the lap of luxury. Why spend all day trekking through some city or location when you can instead cruise by it and do all of your sightseeing without having to worry about putting on your good walking shoes?

The best part of our river cruises is that you get a complete package. Your price includes your accommodations on board ship, hotel accommodations for your ground tour portions, all of your meals on the cruise ship and even seven meals on the ground tour portion of your vacation.

Beyond that, we offer an experienced staff of tour guides who can make your experiences all the more enjoyable because of their deep and intimate knowledge of local areas, history, and customs. Imagine being able to explore Europe and find out everything you ever wanted to know about historic places, beautiful natural locations, and much, much more.

How Do I Prepare for a Cruise?

One of the biggest things that you will need to do prior to going on a cruise of this nature is to make sure that you have your passport up to date. If you have not traveled in quite some time, this can sometimes be the hardest part of preparing to leave the country. Passport applications can often take weeks or months, and so you should always start this process well in advance of booking your cruise. Beyond that, preparation is as simple as making sure someone will watch your house or pets and putting your clothes into a travel bag or suitcase.
