Should we take a river cruise?

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I have planned a honeymoon for end of June and beginning of July 2016. The plan is for Switzerland (Lucerne & Wengen & surrounding area) and Italy (Amalfi coast)

I have heard of river cruising because of Viking commercials. It has always intrigued me, however I am not sure if we should add a cruise to our honeymoon or not? We would be able to add the time if this sounded like a good idea.

My fiance and I are in our early 30s. Would we be considered the youngest on these river cruises?
We love to travel and thought a river cruise would be a great way to relax and see more of Europe. We do not need a lot of night life in the evenings, however we do enjoy sitting at the bar drinking wine. We would like the vessel to have a pool/hot tub, a place to get a massage, and maybe some kind of entertainment.

I researched A-Rosa river cruises....does anyone have any opinion or input on this company? Any others that I should look into? Or should I wait to take a river cruise until we are a little older? I know that sounds terrible, but would love honest answers.

Thank you!
