River Cruise Companies Comparsions

Aloha Friends!

The rivers of our world are seeing a rise in the number of ships which are presenting not only in Europe (ie: Main, Danube, Elbe, Duro) but in Asia (ie: the Mekong, Myanmar) and in Russia. With the increasing number of ships and companies controlling them there are numbers of questions about which one is best for me to sail on.

I thought that a brief comparison of luxury river cruises of Tauck, Uniworld, and Scenic might be in order to help you decide. They all sailing the same areas but have slight differences. Certainly their styles are different. Uniworld is very European old-world style, Tauck is modern with a country club air about it. Scenic has a chic modern design.

Here is a chart to show you some of the differences at a glance:
