Need Europe Cruise for 40 Somethings Advice

Jump to last reply

I have a week of vacation at the end of June (I realize I got a late start) and am considering a cruise in Europe. Maximum duration can be about 8 days. A travel agent recommended AMA Waterways Nurembourg to Budapest or Windstar Wind Surf from Nice to Barcelona. A friend recommended Viking from Amsterdam to Basel. Never done a river cruise before. Worried that the boats will seem small. Main fear is that we'd be on a small boat without many people in our age group. Any feedback on any of the companies I've mentioned or river cruising in general? Any other trips you'd recommend. We love active trips with active people. Have taken several Backroads trips and like them very much but don't want to spend too much of the trip biking this time. Figured cruising might be a good way to see different places without having to change hotels or make travel plans for each city. Know this is all very vague but appreciate any help.

Thanks.
