LUXURY RIVER CRUISE VACATIONS
One of the fastest growing trends in the cruise industry has been River cruising. The ships are smaller and are capable of navigating through winding inland waterways, and where they can dock in the heart of cities and villages allowing for seamless exploration of places that large ocean cruise ships just can’t reach.
River cruise lines such as Viking River Cruises, Avalon Waterways, AmaWaterways and Uniworld to name only a few, are growing each year and are expanding their fleets. Since 2014 many river cruise lines have quickly introduced around 20+ new vessels that are now sailing to exciting destinations throughout the world.
Are you new to River Cruising? Here’s what they have to offer you!
Experience Vibrant River Cruise Itineraries
River cruises offer spectacular itineraries that reach riverside cities such as Vienna, Paris, Cairo and Beijing. With ports in the center of town you are in the heart of all the action leaving you more time to take in the culture and surroundings. This is a true advantage as many larger cruise ship itineraries claim desirable ports such as Rome and Florence, however, when you’re ready to visit Civitavecchia and Livorno which are two port cities, they’re about 90 minutes outside of the town.
River Cruising Offers Worldwide exploration
The boundaries of river cruising extend far beyond Europe. Plan to explore ports along narrow waterways such as China’s Yangtze River, the Nile River in Egypt or even the Amazon River in Brazil and Peru. In the United States, river cruise lines such as American Queen Steamboat Company and American Cruise Lines glide in and out of ports along the Mississippi River, Chesapeake Bay, Erie Canal and beyond.
River Cruises Provide an All-inclusive Experience
Led by local guides, most if not all river cruise lines offer at least one free shore excursion in each city, for example, they may include walking tours and exclusive visits to Christmas markets or museums. This provides you that authentic experience of what each city has to offer from an insider’s perspective. Additionally, all onboard meals are included, along with wine, beer and soft drinks. Many river cruise companies are expanding their inclusions, and we can offer more details on what they are when you reach out to us.
Local Flavors Are Plentiful Onboard a River Cruise
The river cruise vessels can procure a treasure trove of local produce, because they carry fewer passengers. Seafood and local meats are available for onboard meals and the food is often fresher and more regionally inspired than on large ocean ship cruises. Also locally cultivated is the entertainment where you can enjoy classical pianists, local folk dancers and small bands may be brought on board for a show. You won’t find multiple lounges, casinos, sprawling spa areas or fancy gyms, or activities such as trivia and making animal-shapes out of towels, but you will find unique cultural seminars and cooking demonstrations.
Unique Themed Options are Available
Opportunities for themed experiences are more prevalent as river cruising continues to evolve. New itineraries highlight Holland in tulip season, Europe’s famous Christmas markets and France’s majestic wine region, in addition to safari and wildlife cruises through Africa. For the active person, you can theme-focused cruises that involve golf, history and biking.
If you love to take cruises, or this may be your very first one, taking a river cruise vacation will truly open your eyes to the world and provide you a different perspective from the traditional mainstream ocean cruise.
