I see a lot of information on river cruises in Europe but they're all pretty expensive. Does anyone know of a more low key, less frills option? As for where, pretty much any of the major rivers I would be interested in.
If it helps, by comparison I used to live in Alaska and found great enjoyment (and great cruising) on the Alaska State Ferry vs. a cruise line. In truth, I never took a cruise line in Alaska but took the Alaska Ferry several times and it was a great no frills/great scenery trip. If you've been on the ferry you know what I'm looking for. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
