The Top 10 Benefits of River Cruises

  1. Casual dress code

River Cruising there usually no formal nights so you can leave your dressy clothes at home unless you are going out for a fancy dinner you would not need them.

  1. Unpack only once

Your ship is like a floating home, you only have to unpack once so use the dressers and hang your clothes

  1. Intimate ships

River cruises usually carry less than 200 people so that means avoid dealing with noisy crowds and you get to know your fellow travellers. So smaller vessels mean fewer passengers

  1. Amenities abound

There’s never a dull moment on a river cruise. Your cabin will have all the amenities you would find in a hotel, a television, a writing desk, a French balcony, a safe and a place to sit. On board you can also expect a pool, sun deck, fitness room, hairdresser, massage, restaurant, bar, walking track and so much more.

  1. So many rivers to explore

There are so many cruises to explore, cruising down the Danube at Christmas time to visit the Christmas markets, always wanted to see the springtime tulips in bloom from Dutch and Belgian waterways or drift along the fairytale landscapes on the Rhine and Moselle.

  1. A relaxing pace

What is appealing of a river cruise is it gives you a relaxing pace that is perfect for both floating around and taking in the panoramic views of the landscape, as well as going ashore to explore the iconic sites

  1. Time to Explore

Your ship docks right in town so you can hop on and off for easy and convenient excursions. Your tour manager will be with you every step of the way on your city tour or you can explore on your own.

  1. Enjoy the local flavour

The on board chef will shop the local markets for fresh local produce, seafood and meat to prepare for you on board. Local wine and beer will be available for you to try with your meal. Another high light is the local entertainment that comes on board with music and dance performances.

  1. Incredible service

The river cruise staff are eager to please, so if you need an extra blanket or a cup of coffee made just the way you like they are happy to help

  1. Visit a new place every day

You can wake up the next morning and find you have sailed right into a new country while you were sleeping. The distance between ports on a river are shorter so that means you can go along and explore new places every day.
