Q: Do you have some tips about European river cruise lines? My mom wants to take me, my sister and my 19-year-old on a special vacation this summer. I know some cruise companies appeal to a broader audience (we are trying to avoid a “nursing home” cruise). Any ideas? Thanks! — Susie B.
A: Hi Susie, European river cruises are becoming more and more popular, and as a result, several companies are trying make their ships more family friendly (although you’re right in thinking many river cruises appeal to an older demographic).
Tauck, which specializes in small group travel, has created special “bridge” family river cruises specifically designed for intergenerational groups. River cruises for families include enticing shore excursions such as a private dinner in a castle in Germany.
