Why Cruise on a River?
River ships offer an intimate onboard ambiance and accommodate anywhere from 100 -250 guests depending on the ship size. Guests are pampered with excellent and personalized service from onboard staff. The ratio of crew to passengers is one to two people. Another reason travelers enjoy river cruises is the all-inclusive aspect where premium beverages and high-end cuisine prepared onboard by renowned chefs are part of the cruise fare. Shore excursions are also included with several options from sightseeing tours, biking tours, and foodie tours giving consumers an opportunity to try local cuisines from the destinations they visit. Consumers can easily immerse themselves in the destinations because river cruises dock in the heart of quaint towns, villages and even cosmopolitan cities. The embarkation and debarkation process are as simple as checking into a hotel.
