Cruising can be relaxing at sea but in Europe I'd want to jump off at every riverside town and take a look around. Convince me I'm wrong.

If we do it, it will be at one end of an ED.
One of the big costs is airfare getting to europe, so it makes sense to combine.
Driving a B road along a river is not the same as the slower less stressful floating up / down a river on a ship. (with someone else piloting the vessel)
