Planning a river cruise can be a daunting task, especially when no two rivers or cruise lines are alike. However, river cruises allow you to travel to several breathtaking sites, while avoiding many of the hassles of traveling.

Why Choose a River Cruise?

River ships are able to dock right in the historic center of cities and towns that grew up around the river. There is great appeal in being able to walk off the ship and start sight-seeing right away. River ships also afford an opportunity for a more intimate experience in town, such as people watching at a sidewalk cafe.

Unlike many ocean cruises, excursions and guided tours are often INCLUDED in the price of your river cruise.  Along with premium dining experiences and local cuisine options, many river cruises include select beverages as well. There have been many improvements and enhancements to river cruise ships, including larger cabins, French balconies, high-quality amenities and more.

Some of the more popular destinations for river cruises include:
