The article focuses on the penetration of river cruising in Europe. According to the operators, the sales for European river cruising are increasing. However, there is a common misconception among the Australian agents that the river cruise market offerings from the continent reached full capacity. Trafalgar provides an extensive river cruise product and operates its own river cruise boats. Travel The World offers cabins which are available for 2008 on Tauck cruises.
