Steven B. Stern is the ultimate authority on all forms of cruising. Having written 24 annual editions of the universally acclaimed "Stern's Guide to the Cruise Vacation" he has now produced a guide devoted exclusively to the riverboat and barge experience. The popularity of riverboat explorations throughout Europe has grown expeditiously over the past few years and has become the newest "hot" segment of the cruise market. Leisurely sojourns on hotel barges on the waterways of France and other European countries also are becoming popular among seasoned cruisers seeking a more intimate and tranquil vacation.
This comprehensive guide lists descriptive information for every European riverboat and hotel barge, including vital statistics, stateroom size, descriptions of public areas, dining and shipboard facilities, and itineraries. Each vessel is evaluated as to comfort and luxury. Hundreds of photos of the vessels exterior and interiors are included, as well as sample menus and daily programs.
Several chapters are devoted to descriptions of the cities and villages visited by riverboats, and the regions and villages visited by hotel barges, along with descriptive photographs.

This is a wonderland of fantasy travel we had never really considered. We had seen some of these boats as we drove through Germany and other countries but never had one source of information about the possibilities they offer for wonderful vacations. We are certain to put this knowledge to good use in the near future.
I am so glad a friend recommended this guide to me when I was thinking about a trip to Europe. A river cruise was not really in my thoughts but after reading this comprehensive guide I found just the itinerary I was looking for and the accommodations and amenities were exactly as described in this book. I am now a huge fan of river cruising and this guide is a must read for anyone who is looking for guidance or advice on this fabulously fun way to travel.
Welcome...very timely. Now that riverboats have3 come into their own, and replaced the old fashioned buses this kindle edition or bood is very necessary. Otherwise how will the newly interested make the right choice? Staterooms,food, ports, newly designed ship, it is all there for us to find. Some even offer indoor pools! It is very exciting because they can not make them wider, nor higher, nor longer so are challenged to make luxury happen, and they apparently do.Thanks Mr. Stern.
