There are several companies out there that offer such. Just Google and you can get a list. For my money it would be Viking.

Had a friend just back from one and played golf with another guy who just game back and they love them.  The guy I played golf with has been on 4 of them.  From what he says, great small ship experience, give or take 100 passengers.  Beat the hell out of the mega ships with 3000+.  He indicated beer and wine were included but the harder stuff you could buy a card for and have those included as well.  Only downfall was the trip over.

Thanks Vantage for the Viking name.

Hey Boar, good to hear from you. If you wouldn稚 mind, next time you talk to those guys ask them if they have a preferred cruise line.  Beer and wine is all I need, so I知 good with that!!

I知 looking to go next May-ish. I know I want to start, or end, in Amsterdam.

She told me the choose Viking because it was the most highly recommended.  She said there were roughly 200 on board, all beer, wine and Champaign was included with all meals and all excursions were included in the price.  They toured the Rhine and stayed mostly in Germany.  They enjoyed theirs so much they've already scheduled another one next year touring the Danube.  We may look into one of those in the near future.  I'd just dread the flight.

Awesome! Thanks brotha!

I'm with you on that flight over. Nine hours is a long time to be in a sardine can.

The only time in my life I wish I was 4 feet tall and weigh in at 50 pounds is when I climb on board a plane.

My wife and I just got back from a trip to Eastern Europe. While we didn't travel Viking, we did see several of their ships tied up along the bank near the Parliament Building on the Danube in Budapest. Whether one goes by ship or land, the capital of Hungary is an absolute MUST see. Incredibly beautiful and exciting city. BTW if anyone has seen any of the printed or tv advertisement for Viking it's very likely you would have seen the aforementioned building along the Danube.
