I often read with some element of horror of River cruise offers with prices for a weeks cruising on the Danube or Rhine costing almost €2000 per person - I am talking about Viking, Uniworld and APT!

Riverscanner has some excellent value river cruises!

For example!

Danube 7 nights in May for €349

Rhine 7 nights in May for €449

Rhone 7 nights in May for €599

Shorter Christmas Markets cruises are excellent value from €149 for 3 nights departing Cologne!

I have used the sister site seascanner.com for ocean cruises and was very happy with the service and T&Cs.

At these prices and 'boring' European ocean itineraries I can feel a river cruise coming on :D :D :D

Those prices are certainly very low Tom. Our river cruises with Viking have cost upwards of £200pppn but they have included flights, excursions, drinks, and pre- and post- cruise hotels so it might not be a like-for-like comparison. But even so, those prices are very low!

Much as we enjoyed river cruising, I'm not sure how much young children would like it.

for young children - if you considered one where the tours are not inclusive so you can be picky about organised outings (they exist we booked one a couple of years ago) - and so can plan your days out accordingly - they should be ok for small children.
No sea days nor children's clubs, but you can get off more easily than from ocean cruises

I've just checked the small print of the line we used and found this:
