Gota Canal boat photoSweden's Göta Canal has connected the cities of Stockholm and Gothenburg since 1832. The canal remains popular with recreational boaters, but if you'd rather be a cruiser than a captain, you're in luck: the Göta Canal Steamship Company offers two- to six-day cruises aboard three vintage ships: the Juno (launched in 1874), Wilhelm Tham (1912), and Diana (1931).

Cabins are small, with toilets and showers down the corridor, but don't let that discourage you: You can always book a suite in a five-star hotel at either end of your cruise for stretching out and drip-drying your laundry.
