Travel Guru Steven B. Stern Publishes a New Guide for Cruise Lovers

Stern devotes his new book, “Stern’s Guide to European Riverboats and Hotel Barges” to the latest “hot” segment of the cruise market

BOCA RATON, Fla. – (Release Date TBD) – From the ultimate authority on all forms of cruising and renowned author of 24 annual editions of the universally acclaimed “Stern’s Guide to the Cruise Vacation,” Steven B. Stern produces a guide devoted exclusively to the riverboat and barge experience. Stern’s Guide to European Riverboats and Hotel Barges comes in both black and white and full color editions for a stunning reference and an exceptional reading experience.

The popularity of riverboat explorations throughout Europe has grown expeditiously over the past few years and has become the newest “hot” segment of the cruise market. Leisurely sojourns on hotel barges on the waterways of France and other European countries also are becoming popular among seasoned cruisers seeking a more intimate and tranquil vacation.

This comprehensive guide lists descriptive information for every European riverboat and hotel barge, including vital statistics, stateroom size, and descriptions of public areas, dining and shipboard facilities, and itineraries. Each vessel is evaluated as to comfort and luxury. Hundreds of photos of the vessels exterior and interiors are included, as well as sample menus and daily programs.

A couple of praises for Stern and his unprecedented work:

 

“Steven Stern has an encyclopedic knowledge of the cruise world in general and riverboat- and barge- cruising in particular, with a great understanding of the different lines and their products. This guide is a must for both new and veteran riverboat and barge travelers.”

-World of Cruising Magazine

 

“Finally someone has written a definitive travel guide covering an ever growing and popular, yet seldom covered, segment of the cruise industry. This is compulsory reading for anyone interested in a riverboat or barge cruise.”

-Official Steamship Guide International

 

In Stern’s Guide to European Riverboats and Hotel Barges, several chapters are devoted to descriptions of the cities and villages visited by riverboats, and the regions and villages visited by hotel barges, along with descriptive photographs. With this new book, Stern has clearly endeared himself to all cruise lovers in the world.
