Why consider a river cruise over a land or ocean cruise experience. The river cruise takes you through the countries versus to them.
There are fewer people on a river cruise ranging from 150-200 or less. The rivers (Rhine, Danube, Rhone, Nile, The Mekong) run through major European cities like Paris, Prague, Budapest and also in Asia like Vietnam and Cambodia, Middle East in Egypt, and the Amazon in South America. The leisurely pace and in depth cultural and local experience at each of the region’s the rivers flow through are highly enriching and relaxing to the mind.
The smaller number of people on board the ships makes it a more intimate environment for singles to make new friends, couples to enjoy each other’s company or multi generational families to make new memories. Also you will avoid the long line ups to get your food and drinks order fulfilled.
River cruising offers you a great value where your cruise, meals, drinks, local excursions and activities are all included. Some ships have their own wellness coaches on board to keep the clients fit and engaged with special focus on exercises such as Yoga and Pilates and muscle strengthening routines. Bike riding, wine tasting, cooking demonstrations are all part of local excursions and included in the cruise package price.
There are many five star ships like AMA waterways, Viking, Avalon, Emerald, Scenic and Uniworld; offering luxurious and comfortable accommodations and amenities on board that give one a feeling of home away from home. The floor to ceiling staterooms with walkout balconies gives one the feeling of a floating home with beautiful vistas around with beautiful scenery and ancient castles and colorful architecture.
Onboard experience offers swimming pools, fitness areas, spa services and world class cuisine. The ships culinary team offers clients specific regional cuisines using fresh ingredients highlighting the local cultural flavors.
So for an enriching and relaxing experience try a river cruise that offers accessibility and convenience of immersing intimately into the charm and hospitality of the local culture and its people surrounding each of the ports.
