River cruises in comparison to barge cruises are different in that they cruise the rivers of Europe rather than the small canals. The ships are larger and hold from 80 to 200 passengers. You will often find a swimming pool, beauty salon, gift shop, dancing and entertainment on board where you will not on the barge cruises. Several of the ships have bicycles on board as well as a spa, triple or even quad occupancy cabin and a few with connecting cabins.
In contrast, where the smaller barges include shore excursions, have bicycles for guests and often have open bar, the river cruises do not have an open bar policy, bicycles, and most do not include shore excursions.
