Europe River Cruises...With Kids???

Jump to last reply

Hello! I'm just reading up on river cruises through Europe. We're not really "cruise" people - have never appealed to me - but we're planning on an August 3-week European adventure with our two sons (ages 7 and 4 at that time) and thought that perhaps a week on some river would be a good chance to dabble in a few towns without much packing and schlepping. (I was thinking about the bigger boats that travel, say, a few hundred miles per week, rather than the wonderful little barges that travel the canals.)

HOWEVER! I know that some cruise companies require guests to be at least age 12 - does anyone know of others that don't have age restrictions? Or perhaps there's a nice alternative that I haven't considered??

Thanks for any suggestions!
