River Cruise Travel Tips for First Time Cruisers

how to dress for a european river cruise

Fly Comfortable Business Class

Yes, it does cost more to fly business class, but you will have room for your legs and larger comfortable seats. Some airlines offer economy plus or economy extra. These and similar programs are not as pricey as business class but certainly offer more comfort than economy for your long flight. Your vacation begins when you sit down on your flight. Don’t arrive with cramped legs, back spasms, and a headache. Comfortable airfare should be part of your budget.

Don’t Overpack

Overpacking is a common mistake. Choose items to pack that can serve a double purpose and can be hand-washed. Quick drying fabrics are popular for traveling and can reduce the amount of clothing you need. You’re not going to a fashion show, and you want to bring clothes that are comfortable and practical. You will be walking on cobbled streets in many areas, so bring comfortable shoes. Don’t bring anything you can do without.
