5 Reasons To Cruise Through Europe With APT

5 May 2015

Life is easier on a cruise ship. Why do you think all the rich people buy yachts? Having your accommodation, sightseeing, dining and activities all in the one place takes a lot of the hassle out of travelling, particularly not having to lug your bags from hotel to hotel and through airport after airport.

APT's river cruises through Europe have all this and even more conveniences that make it a must for those who love easy travel.

#1 - Check-In

.........................................................................................................................................................
One of the best reasons to tour Europe on an APT river cruise is that they make it so easy.

Unlike a do-it-yourself driving tour which has you in a different hotel room nearly every night, its one check-in and one unpack - now that certainly beats living out of a suitcase.

Then it’s sit back, relax and enjoy the cruise as the majestic wonders of Europe are brought to your door every morning.

There is also a great range of guided tours to choose from, or you may like to borrow one of the on-board bikes and head off on your own adventure. History lovers will be enamoured of the countless castles and endless folklore which seeps through every brick and cobble stone of this ancient land.

#3 - Tips Included

.........................................................................................................................................................
Australians are not renowned for their tipping so with this in mind APT has made it easier on us by
including all gratuities in the package price.

So now there is no need for the last-minute embarrassing pocket shuffle at the end of your European adventure.

#4 - Valet Service

.........................................................................................................................................................
APT takes the stress out of travelling with their top notch transfer service. There are no frustrated phone calls at the arrivals hall with this crowd. Every APT customer is met at the arrivals hall and transferred by luxury air-conditioned coach to their ship and the team will be there too at the end of your cruise to wave you off at the airport.

And, for those customers that are not the best at walking APT are happy to arrange mini buses for city tours during the cruise so you are never left in a quandary as to whether you will make it back to the ship after a fun day exploring.

#5 - Food Glorious Food

Your luggage won’t be the only thing that will gain a few kilos on your river cruise.

With all meals and beverages included (there is a charge for top-shelf liquor) in your package you will be indulged to the max with a choice of three on board a la carte restaurants.

For lunch you have a choice of a la carte in the restaurant or relax in the lounge with a light meal. Breakfast is buffet style with a healthy choice of fruits, cereals and breads or you can stock up with a hearty cooked breakfast prior to your day of touring.

And, if that’s not enough to keep you going through the day there is always a great selection of cakes and cookies available at morning and afternoon tea. Night owls won’t go hungry either with a late evening snack always on offer in the lounge.
