Our Story

European River CruisesCo-Owner Jeff Paglialonga (with wife Gina) was recently asked by Peter Lynch, President of Big Splash Media, Publisher of 21 prominent cruise and travel magazines, of his thoughts of “a price war breaking out on the rivers…Am I right? I think you were here first, Jeff.” Jeff’s response was “Seems the industry is catching on, super luxury, all-inclusive, unlimited drinks are not for all. There is a segment of the market that want true VALUE in river cruising. Half of our guests don’t drink or just have 1 glass of wine for dinner. They book with us because they don’t want to feel they are buying other people’s drinks the entire trip. There is some bitterness and resentment that builds up during a cruise for those that don’t drink or drink little.

Our tag line “Explore More for Less” explains our market, the attitude of our guests, they would rather do more trips that pay 3x as much. Our guests are more mobile and realize that part of a trip is being able to meet locals and talk with them, to go where there are no groups. This can’t be done in a large group setting. We recently cruised with one of our competitors and did the group tours as part of our investigation in operations. It was awful. In these small European city streets there were many large groups (30+ people!) getting mixed together and blocking walkways etc. I will not be surprised to see some cities ban (by code) groups of over 8 in the very near future. Large groups ruin the experience for everyone, including the host city.

Our philosophy has stayed the same since starting. We equip our guests to get off the ship and explore on their own. There is no better way to see the world. Many just don’t think they know what and how to do it, but we show them! Starting July 28 every cabin will receive their own Samsung Galaxy J3 phone which will be their own personal Free Wi-Fi Hotspot, cell phone (they can call the states or Australia included), our app pre-downloaded, Google Maps, XE Currency app, Google Translate, and more. The digital tools are making our world much easier to navigate as a traveler.

It is a very rewarding experience to see 75+-year-old guests use UBER for the first time.

This is what we do- empower our guests with the tools (TeemingRC City Walking Tour app) to wander, discover, and explore. When you do it yourself you own it. Our guests own their adventure, and we love assisting them to make the trip of a lifetime. Value doesn’t mean sacrificing quality, what it means is a more rewarding experience or all.

Teeming River Cruises is an independent family-owned, American owned and operated business. Although newly founded the beginning of 2017, their story began well before that. Owners Jeff and Gina Paglialonga’s love for travel spans decades as does their romance (high school sweethearts, fellow University of Florida graduates, married 30+ years with four children). This twosome was bitten by the travel bug early in their marriage and instilled the same love of travel, adventure & exploration into all their four kids. They have toured the globe (visiting 6 out of the 7 continents) both as a couple and as a family.

Why Choose Teeming River Cruises

An Invitation to a Teeming Experience… In the warmest spirit of hospitality, we invite you to travel with Teeming River Cruises. Experience a contemporary kind of river cruising that is designed to give travelers the opportunity to create their own adventures and itineraries while exploring lovely cities and ports on the iconic waterways of Europe. We encourage you to climb aboard. Teeming River Cruises truly is “teeming” with distinction.

Jeff & Gina PaglialongaTeeming with Value! Our innovative standard for cruising provides an incredibly low price and à la carte type of luxury cruise. Because each guest is in control of their adventure, the choice of how you wish to spend your time and vacation dollars is yours. All our sailings are “teeming” with a vast array of experiences and sites at amazing destinations. In all our ports, we are offering a complimentary city walking app. With this à la carte approach, you only pay for the activities and tours you choose to do. Teeming River Cruises offers a luxurious experience while on board for a great value and allows you the opportunity to determine what you would like to do at each port!

Teeming with Personalized Journey! We know each of our guests are unique with unique interest, activity levels, paces, travel budgets, culinary tastes etc. It’s your trip of a lifetime. We want to leave the choices of how to spend your days up to you. Perhaps you want to follow a busy day with a more relaxing, leisurely one. This cruising experience will be tailor-made to each passenger based on their travel desires and interests. We are happy to offer advice and assistance, but leave the decisions to you. Teeming River Cruises purposely offers more time in port to help accommodate your decisions. Be it people watching in a delightful café or exploring an ancient castle or both, the choice is yours!

Teeming with Destination-Focused Dining! Dining on the cruise ship is an important part of your journey and our chef is committed to providing an enriching culinary experience with freshly prepared dishes made with local ingredients and paired with selected wines. To help immerse our guests in the culture, our menu reflects regionally inspired dishes. Seated at private tables with crisp white linen, candles, embossed silver, and fine porcelain, you will be served a delectable four-course meal. Allow us to treat you to afternoon tea in royal fashion, while you drink in the picturesque landscape from the ship’s lounge.

Cruise the River, Plant a Tree! Due to Teeming River Cruises’ commitment to both affordability and sustainability, our marketing strategy does not involve printing glossy cruise brochures and catalogs which add huge additional expense and often just fills up trash cans (and eventually dumps). This commitment to sustainability is evident not only in our use of environmentally-friendly practices such as paperless marketing & guest communications but also in our investment in reforestation. We have partnered with the National Forest Foundation (NFF), https://www.nationalforests.org/ and are working to support tree restoration in America’s national forests and grasslands. In fact, TeemingRC will donate to NFF to plant a tree in your honor for every cabin you book. While you are making lasting memories on a cruise, you will also be making a lasting impact on the environment (i.e. watershed health, forest health & resiliency, wildlife habitat, air quality and even seed source for the future). Cruise the River, Plant a Tree.
