Try a River Cruise
It's time to travel again! Intimate, luxurious and relaxing. From tiny villages to cosmopolitian cities, enjoy your long deserved vacation on the most scenic rivers in the world.
What are River Cruises?
People have used rivers for centuries to go from town to town, transport goods and sightseeing. It’s the best way to see the heart of a city. Kingsbridge travel will put together the perfect river cruise itinerary for an awe-inspiring trip based on your personal travel preferences.
River cruises are a value option
River cruising combines relaxation, experiences, and cultures. They sail the heart of the country and introduce you to cities and towns that can’t be accessed on traditional ocean cruises. Take only a few steps away from your ship to visit castles, stroll through country fairs and explore iconic landmarks.
River cruises are relaxing
If you prefer, sit and watch the world go by from the top deck with a book or a drink in hand and enjoy the nature around you. Nothing is as peaceful as floating down the river after exploring major cities and local towns during the day.
River cruises are intimate
With smaller capacity and crowds, river cruises provide a more friendly and cozy atmosphere, allowing you to make friends with your fellow passengers and crew. Enjoy onboard activities with other guests and make your trip, if you travel alone, feel more like a family excursion than a solitary vacation.
River cruises are casual
Your ship is your floating home base, you only pack and unpack once. No need to rise early to pack and get your luggage ready for the next city. Everything is included, from meals and transportation to excursions. Relax and let us do the planning.
River cruises are not boring
With a new port every day, your choice of cities and towns to explore is endless. A smaller vessel doesn't mean fewer choices for activities, you can choose from taking slow walks to food and wine tastings, to hiking and biking tours. While there are not big entertainments at night, there is always music in the lounge, accented with local entertainers who are brought in to add local flavor.

What our customers are saying
"Our travel agent, Diane Ross, planned a trip-of-a-lifetime for us. We wanted to cruise, but also to tour. Because Mom is 88, navigating around a large ship would have been too strenuous. A river cruise was the answer! Diane had so much knowledge about various lines, and was able to narrow down the selection for us. An elegant environment was important to us, as well as cuisine. She found an ideal itinerary and knew which cabins were the most spacious and well-located. The ship’s staff knowledge of the (60th) birthday made the celebration more memorable (which Diane facilitated). She inquired about our interests to enhance our enjoyment of the trip. As a result, while docked in Paris, she arranged a Walking Tour of chocolate boutiques for us! Everyone loves chocolate, but I think few travel agents take the time to learn about their clients’ likes and dislikes, so that they can personalize their trip in such a lovely and different way. In addition to her professionalism, Diane’s depth of traveling experience allows her to recommend and implement trips for clients on every scale, from a local getaway to an around-the-world voyage. I can’t recommend her services highly enough."IJ, Cherry Hill NJ
"Dear Diane, I've just returned from my French river cruise/stay in Paris, and am so pleased with this thrilling experience! After our cruise, the hotel you selected in Paris was well-located, comfortable, and affordable yet not chintzy. We especially loved the (included) elegant and expansive breakfast. In spite of all the joys Paris has to offer, the highlight was my day at the Jacquemart-Andre museum, something I would never have known about except for the advice of the concierge. This is the second trip you've arranged for me -- the first being my Mediterranean cruise and stay in Rome with my grandson -- and both have been stellar experiences with not a hitch. I'm eager to go to Europe again soon, and I can't imagine ever using any other travel agent."Pat Busbice
"I want to recommend Diane Ross of Kingsbridge Travel. I knew I wanted to take a river cruise, but I had no idea of which one, when, or what ship. Diane gave me what she called “river cruising 101”. She explained the difference between ocean and river cruising and found the perfect cruise for me. She even planned my before and after cruise stays and recommended optional excursions. If you want to take a river cruise, call Diane. Alice L"Alice L
"Diane Ross was extremely competent, professional, and always available to assist with any concerns or questions I had. She always promptly returned phone calls or emails throughout the planning process, and even on one occasion during the trip. Diane guided me every step of the way and attended to every detail to make my dream trip a reality. Thanks to her expertise, my experience was worry and stress free. I will be planning a return trip to Europe, and wouldn't consider anyone else as my agent."Diane Hayes
