A river cruise vs a city break

24 hours in a city with meals, drinks and sightseeing can be expensive

Research suggests that a river cruise could be as much as 30% cheaper than a comparable city break
Most cruise lines will include flights ( or Eurostar) transfers, meals, drinks, boutique style accommodation in the heart of the city with sightseeing and opportunities for unique experiences ( eg private concerts, private viewings in galleries, guided hikes, wine tasting) with excellent service, knowledgeable cruise hosts
Use of walking poles, bikes, pools/spas
You visit more than 1 city at a time eg Vienna and Budapest so its a great way of ticking off your ‘book it list’
There are themed cruises for example:
Active – cycling, running ,hiking
Food/ wine
Entertainment is generally low key.  Some operators bring a musician / local artists onboard
Some offer evening performances ashore eg a concert in Vienna
some have BBQs on deck in summer
