WHO could have known river cruising would grow so rapidly? Once you have sailed serenely down some of Europe's great rivers, you'll understand the stupendous increase in popularity with companies such as APT, Scenic, Avalon, Evergreen and Viking offering myriad cruises along stunning rivers and gorgeous waterways.

The beauty of river cruising - apart from spacious staterooms with verandas, and all-inclusive food and wine, - is the leisurely pace to glide by Europe's gorgeous scenery.

From fairy-tale castles to lush vineyards to Hansel and Gretel towns, a river cruise takes you into the heart of Europe. Imagine sailing right into Budapest? Or Prague? Or Paris?

Travel fantasies don't come any richer.
