This guide is a must for both new and veteran riverboat and barge travelers." -World of Cruising Magazine

For those cruisers who would appreciate a more relaxing, intimate, low-key experience sailing down scenic rivers and inland waterways while visiting charming non-coastal European cities and villages, a riverboat or hotel barge sojourn may be the perfect solution. Travelers eyeing European rivers and waterways as their ultimate getaway destination may refer to Steven B. Stern’s “Stern’s Guide To European Riverboats And Hotel Barges.”

This second edition of “Stern’s Guide to European Riverboats and Hotel Barges” 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. The description of each vessel includes ratings and photos of the exteriors and interiors of the vessels, 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.
