Never has river cruising been so popular and in Europe we are spoilt for choice of scenic rivers full of history with picturesque towns and great cities along their length. King though, must be the majestic Rhine flowing from the Swiss alps to the empty into the North Sea through the deltas of the Netherlands. Cruising the Rhine early in the last century poets, artists  and musicians found themselves enthralled by the romance of the landscape with its castle studded banks. The river’s charm endures: in 2002 the Middle Rhine Valley, flanked by vineyards and steeped in legend was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
