The Joys of River Cruising

28 June 2013

While traditional ocean cruises are perennially popular, recent years have given way to a new era in cruising.  River cruising has become the latest travel trend, with cruisers wanting to experience all the glamour of traditional cruising but in a more intimate setting.  Boasting spectacular routes on some of the world’s most famous rivers, elegant ships and impeccable service, travellers can explore the world in a stylish and exciting way.

Imagine gliding along the glittering waters of the Rhine River.  Explore enchanting castles and the quaint towns of Germany, and the sunny canals of Amsterdam.  See Italy’s romantic landscapes on the Po River, or meander through lush jungles on Cambodia’s Mekong River.   Whether you want to stick close to home on the Zambezi or travel to exotic places, with a great variety of route options finding your perfect river cruise has never been easier. Like traditional cruises, river cruises also take the stress out of travelling allowing you to immerse yourself in foreign cultures and get the most out of your holiday.

Gone are the days of having to haul heavy luggage across countries and unpack and repack. On your river cruise, you can sit back and enjoy luxurious on-board amenities while exciting new places come to you.  Relax in lavish staterooms, go for a swim in glittering pools, get the family together for a movie at the on-board cinema, or sip freshly made cocktails as the sunsets.  With most cruise lines including meals, and on-board activities, guests won’t have to worry about steep foreign exchange rates or a hefty bill at the end of their journey. If you have never cruised before or are a seasoned veteran, a river cruise can bring out the best of travelling at exceptional value.  So the next time you’re planning your perfect holiday, imagine taking your family, sweetheart or friends on a spectacular river voyage.
