3. Rhone River
If you're a self-proclaimed wine enthusiast, then this choice should be at the top of your list for best rivers to cruise in Europe! It runs through Provence and Burgundy, which are two of France's top wine-making regions, as well as cruising past acres of vineyards! Most cruises feature complimentary wine-themed shore excursions, winery visits, on board lectures, wine tastings and wine pairings at meals. Just make sure you don't overdo it with the wine as you will want to remember this cruise well later!
