    Good morning, not sure if this is the correct thread?

    Does anyone know of any and perhaps have experience of, cruising the major European Rivers, Rhine, Danube etc on cargo or freight ships/barges, rather than the regular passenger ships which seem to be very expensive (Especially for single occupancy cabins), for what is normally a fairly short trip, normally 7 to 10 days approx.? I know this type of travel/voyage can be done on the oceans, but not sure about rivers, however considering the amount of freight traffic that is carried on these rivers, especially the Rhine, I did wonder if there was such a service. Many thanks.

    It is certainly done on the Rhine. Something I have always wanted to do but never got round to it.

    I'm sure a quick Google will bring up results.

    That is good to know. I did have a look in Google but could not find anything apart from the regular cruise firms. I shall have another look later.
