I don't think that I would enjoy 46 nights on a river cruise ship. I would get bored by lack of evening options, unless they are overnighting in lots of places to let you get off and explore.

If it's a success, I hope they offer it again in 2024 and 2025.  Depending on price, it's something I may consider.  I have a "big" cruise already booked for 2023.

Have to agree with @gnome12, although not for the lack of entertainment, but for the fact that I think it would wear us out.  We like to be out morning and afternoon on tours, and while I loved the experience, I would think that after that long of a time you would start to have everything blur together. 

 

Of course, we need to see the itinerary, if there are a couple of nights in the same town where you can have more leisure time, and add in the few days of sailing during the day, it could be different.

I read somewhere from US$23000.

😂🤣😲🤑

 

As a solo, it would most definitely be cost prohibitive, but I can dream.

Interesting concept. I could easily handle 46 days - just not on a boat. 

I'm not sure that I could handle 46 days, but it would be easier on a boat than having to truck my luggage from place to place.

 

On another topic, one would hope that a certain amount of laundry would be provided over this length of time.

I have spent as long as three months in Europe and absolutely loved it - I like to spend time on what most interests me. I didn't truck my luggage from place to place on a daily basis as I spent between 3 days to a week in any given location. My 'trick' was to pack smart and light. I found local laundries when the need arose.

46 days on a boat would be far too confining for me with scant time spent in each area - fine for a 7 to 10 day cruise but not 46. JMHO 🙂

True. Such a journey does not work without transfer. You could do a 46 day journey on eight rivers without transfer, but not on an AmaWaterways ship. CroisiEurope could do take with a small ship.

 

I think I would crave home-cooked food after three weeks.

The most I have spent is 6 weeks but it was land. I would be willing to do this (but can't afford it) to give me exposure of areas where I haven't been just so I know where I would want to return at a later time. I am still working so I don't mind an overview.....

 

Though I can't afford this so it is only dreaming.

Perhaps in the future they can use one ship for a mosey from Amsterdam to the Black Sea, nosing up the Moselle and back and up the Rhine and back.  Wouldn't cover '7 rivers' but would be a Grand Tour beyond anything other cruise lines are offering.

On an ocean yes with sea days.  On a river without entertainment and no days off to rest I doubt we’d be interested.  We did 14 nights on the river plus 1 night before and 2 after.  By the last day we were utterly exhausted, our feet hurt and we got grumpy with each other.  We skipped a planned tour the last afternoon in Amsterdam because we just couldn’t do anymore.  We had had only a morning and a separate afternoon to sit and rest the whole trip.   I’d do it again but not any longer then 21 days for sure.

I would think a 45-night river cruise would need to have a different pace and routine to it.  I wonder if there will be overnights where the ship doesn't move, and passengers would go off the ship for evening entertainment?  Guess we'll find out in a few days.

That is my thought on this cruise too.

I loved the overnights on my 2 river cruises. Going out at night is definitely worth it.

I am not into sea days anymore. I did book a TA ocean cruise plus a British Isles and Paris post cruise trip last year (that didn't happen). I thought the sea days would be fine as they were at the end of the semester but normally don't book a cruise for this unless they are viewing days such as Glacier Bay, etc...

 

Maybe once I am retired but I want to take advantage of after vacation day to see something.

I could definitely see the passengers (and crew!) getting cranky after 45 straight days of non-stop activity.
